Click to enlargeOrienteering Thumb Compass

A thumb compass allows the user to hold the compass over the map, all with one hand, while on the move. Unlike a traditional compass that is used to determine or set your bearing, a thumb compass is really just used to orient the map in your hand, so you know what objects to look ahead for. The primary features to look for in a thumb compass are quick dampening and high visibility. And this thumb compass delivers on both counts. This quick-dampening Orienteers compass is designed to be used on the thumb of the left hand, for right-handed people.
