Please don't eat me alive, I have as much love and sentiment for a good magnetic needle as anyone.
But between offline maps navigation (view ranger or locus map for outside of UK), compass in my garmin watch and looking at the sun I have not used any of my manual compasses in like 15 years. The thing is it's only usefull with a paper map and who buys them anymore (especially abroad).
Reviewing my kit and I have been carrying several of them in my various kits for years and they just take space, weight and money...
Any honest opinions will be very welcome.
