When your life depends on it you need the best!  Whether on your watchstrap, in your survival kit, weapon butt or sewn into your shirt, the Francis Barker NATO Survival Compass will get you home.  In World War II, these Francis Barker Survival Compasses were even swallowed by military pilots during capture so that they could later be used during escape.  This SAS button compass was also often sewn into clothes to prevent its loss and to ensure a compass was always available.

This is a full MILSPEC military compass and cannot be exported outside the United States, except for U.S. military units or installations overseas, unless the buyer has the appropriate valid export license issued by the U.S. Department of State as prescribed in the International Traffic in Arms Regulation.
