Suunto compass seems to be the most prevalent around (e.g. eBay), but I must say, this small oil-filled dandy is a great piece. I have GPS so thought compass what the heck, no need. Well, I use it on every trip now (even when GPS is left at home). Gives me something to start at when I am paddling away, and sort of interesting to see where north is…very confusing at times on rivers and in coves. Do I actually USE it for navigation on lakes and streams, no. Is it fun and interesting, yes.
