- Velcro strap included
Suunto M-9 has everything you might want from a wrist compass - it’s compact, lightweight, rugged and easy to use. The case is made of clear plastic and proves to be remarkably strong. Accuracy is not an issue with this compass either. While, it is not designed for precision orienteering, it will help you to get a quick reference and make sure you are on the right track. Thanks to the small side window for taking bearings, the compass can also be used roughly as lensatic.
The strap has a brass buckle and can be worn over a light jacket. The compass card is luminescent and thus, the tool can be used at night or in low visibility conditions. Overall, Suunto M-9 is a simple, yet very well engineered piece of equipment that you can rely on for terrestrial navigation.
