Compasses

Compasses are an essential piece of safety equipment for the outdoors. Learning to use a map a compass is a rite of passage for any budding outdoors person. As much as keeping you on course, map-and-compass navigation is a great way to immerse yourself in the outdoors. It teaches you to read the land. Fortunately also, compasses don’t suffer from flat batteries, water damage and the like that GPS navigation devices can suffer from. The Wilderness Shop only carries accurate, fine-tuned compasses. There are cheaper compasses around, but if they don’t work correctly, they can cause more problems than they solve.
