COMPASS: We recommend SUUNTO products as we have found them to be reliable and durable. We prefer two models in particular – MC-2 and KB 20 models. We highly recommend adventurers should always keep a compass with a sighting mirror in your kit. The MC-2G has a global needle and works anywhere. If you travel out of the country, this is the model for you. Don’t forget to double up on key items such as compass, plotters, scales. You would not want to lose one!
