Story

Our Horizon Compass can make the difference between finding the way home or not, and its German engineers didn't take any chances. The classic needle with sapphire pivot bearing will quickly find north and hold the reading steady. The needle is housed in a thermo-elastic capsule that keeps the suspension fluid bubble-free no matter the temperature, and is flexible to resist impact or stress breakage. This advanced orienteering compass has a transparent base so that it can be referenced directly onto the trail map. With scale guides, rulers, a magnifying lens, and marking cutouts, our Horizon compass makes sense of any map and can be adjusted for local declination.
