"Waterproof"??

you planning on diving with it? in which case I'm sure they make a diving specific compass.

If for landnav I'll take a GI lensatic for ease and precision.

For small lightweight compass a silva....I think mine is a ranger model, dunno if they still make it etc, mine is 15 y.o. or so.

I got this funky plastic lensatic a couple years ago I dunno who makes it (IIRC it's one of the bigname euro firms) has "Karten- Und Orientierungskompass" on the old box...used it a few times. It was alright, prefer the tougher GI.

All the abve are liquid filled, so I guess they meet your "Waterproof" desire ;p

my favorite,but many don't like bulk and weight....never heard of anybody having failure.
