Cammenga Phosphorescent Military Wrist Compass
The lightweight and accurate Cammenga Model J582 Phosphorescent Wrist Compass provides easy on-the-go referencing for military, law enforcement, recreational and survival land navigation at day or night. Constructed with a machined aluminum casing for durability in the most demanding conditions, the Cammenga Phosphorescent Wrist Compass is there to work for you when you need it the most. It is also military approved under NSN 6605-00-809-5252.
Easy to read 10-degree phosphorescent graduations become luminous for visibility in low-light conditions. This is not the Tritium Version of this compass which we also offer. Unlike the Tritium version, this compass needs a flash of light to activate the phosphorescent "glow" of the dial. Tritium glows without the aid of a light to activate the phosphorescent nature of this compass. However, unless you plan on using your compass extensively in the dark, this is the way to go. If you do plan on using your Cammenga compass frequently in the dark, we highly recommend our Cammenga Tritium Wrist Compass in this same section. This wrist compass includes a heavy-duty nylon wristband. This compass is a perfect backup, tactical or emergency compass. It is small, always with you, durable and accurate.
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.
