Military Lensatic Compass

Military Lensatic Compasses are available in Tritium or Phosphorus models. Military compasses are different from many models of compasses because you lift up the cover and then the eye piece and then aim at your next point that you want to go toward or if you are trying to follow a specific bearing at the closest identifiable point in the distance. Degree graduations are plus or minus one degree which is much more accurate than civilian compasses which average plus or minus 2 degrees for their degree graduations. The difference between the tritium compass and the phosphorus compass is the the tritium has a constant glow where the phosphorus stores up light releasing it over several hours but looses the ability to so light after a few hours. Barre Army Navy Store also carries cheaper Chinese imitations but the compasses below are the best:
