Clipper is a high-quality micro compass that clips nearly anywhere – watch strap, sleeve, backpack, or map edge. It weighs almost nothing and becomes part of your outdoor gear, freeing up hands and easing your mind. Clipper is a very basic compass quickly available for easy direction taking.

This compass has a liquid-filled capsule with a card-type needle on a jewel bearing for stable operation. The compass is balanced for the northern hemisphere. The rotating bezel is marked in 10° increments and this simple compass has no declination scale. Luminous glow-in-the-dark markings on the cardinal directions aid in low light conditions.

    Great Backup Compass

    Posted by Chris on 3rd Mar 2024

    This is not a replacement for a standard baseplate compass but this is a decent backup. It points to magnetic north, it is small enough to make sure you always have it with you, and it has a rotating bezel. The glow-in-the-dark direction markings don't start illuminated for very long and there is no adjustable declination but that is to be expected on a tiny, inexpensive compass. For something as important as a compass, one should always have a backup. This will do the job of getting you pointed in the right direction.
