Full Description:
This Stanley London® Solid Brass Wilderness Scouting Compass is one of the best scouting compasses available, with many advanced features not found on other pocket compasses.  This Compass is featured in the tutorial "Determining your Position with a Pocket Compass with a Declination Ring."  The precision compass capsule features a modern liquid-damped compass with a needle that isolates movements and quickly settles to North.  The jeweled arrow-shaped compass needle is easy to read, accurate, quick and responsive.  An interesting feature is that the entire compass bezel will rotate to adjust to your local magnetic declination angle (the difference between true north and magnetic north).  In this way you can orient to either magnetic north, true north, or any arbitrary reference.  Adjustable bezels are usually reserved for the most expensive compasses such as our Brunton Pocket Transit.  The bright glow-in-the-dark luminescent dots are unique and invaluable for nighttime orienting.  Besides a luminescent dot on the north end of the compass needle, there are also two luminescent dots that rotate with the compass bezel.  In this way, you can rotate the bezel to maintain any heading with the compass needle's glowing dot centered inside the two glowing dots on the bezel.  The three luminescent dots and the entire compass bezel glow brightly in the dark for easy nighttime reading.  The case of the Wilderness Scouting is made of solid brass with a hinged lid which will not rust.  Unlike most other brass compasses, these Wilderness Scouting Compasses have a special clear coating that eliminates tarnish and fingerprints on the brass.

This Wilderness Scouting Compass is lightweight and excellent for camping, hiking, hunting, and outdoor use by any outdoorsman.  It is rare to see so many intelligently designed features in a quality compass at such a low price.  The compass is the size of a standard pocket watch, measuring 1 15/16 inches (5 cm) in diameter, 5/8 inch (1.6 cm) thick, and weighs only 1.64 ounces (46.4 grams).  The engravable Brass Wilderness Scouting Compass also makes a perfect gift for a graduating Boy Scout or Eagle Scout with your personalized custom text and/or artwork.  The front, back, and/or inside lid of the Wilderness Scouting Compass can be custom engraved with your personalized inscription.

We offer two solid brass pocket compass chains, each measuring 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall and weighing 1.1 ounces (31 grams), as matching options for your compass.  The chains are specially made to be non-magnetic and will not effect the accuracy of your compass.  The chains have a clasp on one end that attaches to the fob on the pocket compass and the other end can be attached to your pocket, belt, or button hole.

An optional Small Hardwood Case with Inlaid Compass Rose is available for storage and display.  We also have a Small Plain Hardwood Storage Case for displaying and protecting your compass.  An optional dark leather case and two velvet pouches are available as well.
