Suunto M-3 D/L Compass
For the avid adventurer who needs to know where they are anywhere in the world, the Suunto M-3 D/L Compass uses a two-zone system balanced to the northern hemisphere. Its adjustable declination allows you to resolve the relationship between true north and magnetic north depending on your location, which is an essential feature for precise orienteering in the wilderness. A small brass key at the end of the lanyard turns the declination to the desired point. The M-3 has 3 scales on the sides of the base plate for accurate map-to-compass translation: inches, 1:24,000, and 1:62,500 map scales. A 4X magnifying lens on the base plate ensures that you see every detail on your map, while easy-to-read luminous markings allow for readings at night or in low-light conditions. The serrated bezel ring and jewel bearing make for effortless and precise readings. The ergonomically designed base plate includes anti-slip rubber pads and rounded edges for comfortable holding. Marking holes make for easy drawing of control points.

Excellent, well made compass
Just purchased my M-3 and am very satisfied with the decision to buy from Altrec. The Suunto M-3 is a good choice for anyone who wants a high-end and reliable instrument that may one day save their life. Since buying it, I've tested the compass in the field and found it to be easy to use, accurate and reliable. Aside from the high quality compass, the buying experience with Altrec was, as usual, spectacular--no hassles with fast shipping. I highly recommend both the compass and Altrec to anyone out there looking for good "ole fashion" quality and excellent customer service.
