I posted this in another thread and now realize it would be better off in its own thread. From navigation use long ago, my "common sense" tells me the K&R Alpin Sighting Compass would be an excellent choice for most (all) of what I'm going to do. With that being said though, I really like the look of the "Pathfinder" compass from SRO. With those two choices, are there other sturdy, strong (maybe metal) reliable compasses out there? My main uses are bushcrafting, hiking, etc. I like the idea of metal but am not dead set on it. Thanks for your replies.
