While GPS technology is a great advancement in navigation, nothing beats a reliable compass and the rugged Suunto MC-2 Compasses are trusted the world over.

These sighting compasses offer a high grade steel needle with a jewel bearing, adjustable declination correction and built-in clinometer. The clear baseplate with anti-slip feet makes it easy to use on a map and the detachable lanyard with wrist lock makes hand holding and sighting a breeze.

Each compass baseplate is compatible with the USGS UTM and features an inch scale, 1:24,000 mile scale, 1:24,000 UTM and 1:50,000 UTM scales. For more on how to use these scales, check out our Complete Guide to Land Navigation eBook.

Other MC-2 features include a sighting hole, large mirror and notch for taking accurate bearings, as well as luminescent markings for working in low light.

We offer two models of the MC-2 compass, one designed for use in the Northern Hemisphere and one for world-wide Global use. The globally balanced version is designed to compensate for the magnetic pull towards the earth in both northern and southern hemispheres by using a specifically balanced needle. An added feature of the global needle is a quicker dampening time over a standard needle.
