Brunton is the standard when it comes to an orienteering compass. Searched all over and SIerra has the best price, by far. Customer service goes beyond the norm to satisfy.

    The compass seems to be a good compass with one major flaw. It had a large air bubble in the vial which effects accuracy. Sent back to company for replacement.

    I bought one of these a lifetime ago. I bought this one to give my teenage son. In the woods, cell-phone reception for the GPS is non-existent. So, a compass has its uses. This is a very high quality. I paid more than twice this price for one in the 1970's.

    I had one of these back in the day. Best compass I ever used. That one was damaged in a move and so I replaced it. Now please understand that Sierra Trading Post handled the order perfectly; I have no complaints against STP. The compass was junk. Here were the troubles:
    1. The rotating capsule was so tight to the baseplate that turning it was very difficult. I could, with some difficulty, set a course. Trying to rotate the capsule to take a bearing was impossible.
    2. The mirror assembly was floppy. The detent would not hold it in position to sight the capsule markings. Therefore sighting was not fully possible in that there was no way to line up the circles with compass at eye level.
    3. The company (Brunton) had an attached sticker telling of a free map download from National Geographic. That sticker was applied not to the clamshell packaging. The sticker was on the mirror! And they used an inappropriate sticker type with permanent adhesive. As I pulled it off two things happened:
    A. Much of the sticker stayed on the mirror.
    B. The mirror pulled off the compass!
    4. The mirror had been barely glued to the compass! The mirror was going to come off at some time, sticker or not.
    5. In general, the compass was poorly made. The plastics were thinner and / or cheesier than before. The compass felt cheap and lousy in my hands.
    Brunton used to make premium products. Eclipse was one of them. No more. I would strongly recommend against this product, and against Brunton in general. I did not return it. It is by now in its natural environment: a landfill.

    Great compass. Comes with nice instruction booklet. High quality.

    Looks sophisticated, yet my field tests with several evaluators using conventional compasses found this model to perform marginally in orienteering and triangulation tests. The compass has some useful features, but they don't merit the added expense in my view.
