10 Best Hiking and Camping Compasses Reviews

3

Compasses are extremely important to carry when Hiking or Camping for navigation and to avoid you getting lost, especially if you are traveling solo. Good compasses should be lightweight and durable so they dont break when you pull them out of your backpack and should also be waterproof so you can use them in bad weather.

The main features you need to look for when buying a compass are

  • Compass Weight – Depending on the use, try and buy a Compass that is around 40-80 grams
  • Declination Scale – Used by the Compass to find the angle between magnetic north and true north (declination)
  • Rotating Bezel – The compass bezel is used to help set a course
  • Clinometer – Used to measure the elevation of a slope
  • Ruler – For measuring distances on maps

The following are 10 of the Best Compasses for you to take Hiking and Camping.
