I picked this compass up based on the size, price and reputation of the manufacturer. Just a couple of notes. Suunto states that the minimum spread between the hooks should be 17". This is not an absolute since all you need do is turn the compass over, untie the bungee, shorten it and tie it again. The plastic snap hooks that are supplied are just a tad bulky but they are easy to use. The only real complaint I had was the rubberized plastic housing had a little upward point molded into it in the front. this point actually obstructs the view of the graduations on the dial but a quick slice with a fresh razor blade took the nib off and now it's readable from low angles. Seems durable and can be moved from boat to boat effortlessly.
