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.
