    Described as a "basic entry level compass" - does its job well and the needle settles quickly. I need to use it for longer before I know if the markings last longer than on some Silva compasses. Pity about the excessive plastic packaging (at least 6 times the size of the compass).

    Reviewer: Marcus Dyson, Dewsbury   (8-3-2012)

    Any light and small compass is going to be a compromise. And the Suunto A-10 is no exception. On the upside it's palm sized and extremely light, and being of good construction and from a reputable manufacturer, quality is not an issue. It is true to North and has a jewel bearing, declination scale and cm scale rules along its edges.

    If you have a map and good route finding skills, this will keep you aware of where you are and where you are heading. But if you are in more featureless terrain and aiming to take bearings by sightings - you will want a different device.

    But for its intended market - orienteering (and I use it for through hiking), this device is almost perfect. I say almost because Suunto has seen fit to include a "patent-pending lanyard snap-lock enabling the compass to be easily detached" but I cannot see how it "locks" at all, and I have no confidence that after a spirited hike, run or scramble the compass will still be attached to the lanyard. This takes an otherwise five star device down a star for me - a after all what use is it if it's not there when I need it? I replaced the lanyard on mine to remove the snap-lock.
