Cammenga 27 Phosphorescent Military Compass
The Cammenga Model 27 Phosphorescent Lensatic Compass is built to the demanding specification MIL-PRF-10436N. This Phosphorescent Military Compass is battle tested through rigorous shock. It is water and sand proof, and is functional from -50 F to +150 F. This phosphorescent lensatic compass has been used as an economical alternative to the Cammenga 3H Tritium Lensatic model for decades. It is the same compass Cammanga has been supplying to the US military except that the self-luminous tritium has been replaced with phosphorescent paint.
Like the more expensive Tritium Compass version, this Phosphorescent Military Compass is equipped with a magnifying lens, sight wire, and dial graduations in both degrees and mils to ensure accurate readings. The Copper Induction Damping System slow the rotation of the magnet without the use of liquids. Just like the Tritium Military Compass version, this compass is built to last with an aluminum frame and waterproof housing. The Cammenga Compass is depended on by fighting forces, government agencies, and adventurous outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
In a survival situation, a compass is a must have item. Of course, it is always best to stay in one place if searchers are looking for you and it is safe to do so. However, if you must move, you must know which direction you are going. Equally important is the ability to walk in one direction without walking a circle and ending up back where you started.
Valuable time has been wasted by a victim of a survival situation simply because they did not have the ability to walk a straight line. There is no better compass available for this purpose than Cammenga Compasses.
