Dive Rite Compass

The Review
This compass stinks. Tilt the compass just a fraction and kiss the accuracy goodbye. No further review necessary.

Pros
•Relatively inexpensive.
•Very sturdy.
•Band easily removes and has good holes for bungee wrist mounting.

Cons
•Doesn't work worth a crap if it's at all tilted, making this a practically useless instrument.

Conclusion
Don't buy it! Trust me. It's not worth wasting $50-$60. Shame on Dive Rite for even putting their name on this compass. Treat yourself to a Suunto SK-7, which can be tilted up to a 30 degree angle and still be accurate.

**Prices are approximations and near what an average consumer might pay.
