This compas is SWEET! you have everything you could possibly want from a compass on it. its enables you to make really accurate angle measures with the prism, is easy to operate and can take abuse. has an angle meter and adjustable declination. the bad side its a bit costly at about 100$. but its worth it.

its so accurate that my scout team was able to cross a minefield in the dark (it was a night orienteering comp) without a tape measure (you have angles and distances for the safe path), a task we previously failed with tapemeasure and "normal" compasses. the judges were dumbfoulded.
