Compass Pouches

Compass Pouches

Military compass pouches are a necessity for any compass. Generally Army compass pouches are made out of either nylon or GI enhanced material. There are several qualities that nylon material invariably possesses, and they are the following: exceptional strength, elasticity, resistance to abrasion as well as to damage from a number of chemicals and oil, the capability of being dyed into various colors, resilience and low level of absorbency. GI enhanced is referred to as better than military specification. Top quality craftsmanship, detailed construction and 1000 denier tough-as cordura nylon material; improving every last detail. A pouch will protect your compass from the surrounding or from breaking after being dropped. It will also protect it from scratches, cuts, and other damages that can occur to a compass without a protective pouch. The worst thing that could happen to you is to break your compass when one is needed. Plan ahead to have a long and safe trip! Compass Pouches are also known as government issued style nylon marching bags, enhanced modernized army compartments, cheap discounted outdoor emergency preparedness supplies, survivalists safety protective directional case, scratch resistant waterproof olive drab pocket, etc. Compass Pouches are commonly misspelled as replica compas sales, etc.

The compass is comprised of three major components: the cover, the base and the lens. The cover serves the purpose of protecting the compass rose dial. It contains sighting wires and dots utilized in nighttime navigation. The base is where all movable parts of the compass reside. A floating dial rotates indicating direction each time the compass maintains a level position. Incandescent figures depict the directions east (E) and west (W). In the center lies the directional arrow. This always points in the direction of north (N). The last component of the lensatic compass is the lens. This is what reads the floating dial. A rear-sight navigational slot works with the front sight wires in the cover to locate objects. In addition, this slot protects the compass when in the closed position. This works by a lock and clamp system. CAM MENGA is the exclusive manufacturer of the official U.S. Military lensatic compass, built to the demanding specification of MIL-PRF-10436N.

Pocket & Travel Compasses

Pocket & Travel Compasses

Pocket compasses generally are small enough to fit into a standard shirt/pants pocket. A compass, magnetic compass or mariner's compass is a navigational instrument for determining direction relative to the Earth's magnetic poles. It consists of a magnetized pointer (usually marked on the North end) free to align itself with Earth's magnetic field. The compass greatly improved the safety and efficiency of travel, especially ocean travel. A compass can be used to calculate heading, used with a sextant to calculate latitude, and with a marine chronometer to calculate longitude. Pocket & Travel Compasses are also known as mini magnetic kids compass, cheap discounted government issued style navigator, outdoor hunting watch form supplies, rock climbing and hiking navigation equipments, United States Military replicas, etc. Pocket & Travel Compasses are commonly misspelled as lensatic, world war II discounted camo survivalists campers, worldwarII lenstatic

Silva Compasses

Silva Compasses

Silva is the worlds leading compass manufacturer. Ever since 1933, when the Kjellstrm brothers made their first compass, Silva has assiduously developed the magnetic compass; basically simple, but with refined details that make navigating and orienteering more exact. It is a precision instrument that should be found in every outdoor enthusiasts rucksack, regardless of the part of the world, activity or scope of the adventure. A compass will help you to find your way for many years, with no batteries that can go flat. Instructions on how to use a Silva Compass: SILVA 1 - 2 - 3 SYSTEM 1 2 3 4 1. Place compass on map with edge along desired line of travel. Make sure the Direction of Travel arrow points toward your destination. 2. Rotate capsule until the N on the graduation ring points towards North on the map. Check that compass housing North/South lines are parallel to map meridians. 3. Hold compass horizontally in front of you. Turn yourself until red end of the needle points towards N on the compass graduation ring. (Red end of needle will now be aligned to red North arrow in the bottom of the compass capsule). Direction of Travel arrow now points precisely to your destination. Look up, sight on a land-mark and walk to it. Repeat this procedure until you reach your destination. 4. When using a sighting compass with a mirror, hold compass as per picture so that you can check the direction by looking at compass housing in the mirror while sighting in the correct direction of travel. Magnetic declination and how to compensate for it: The difference, between Geographic North (North/South map meridians) and Magnetic North (towards which red end of the compass needle points), is called declination. The amount and direction of declination is shown on the map. For ex. 20 degrees. For Easterly declination, adjust as follows: With the declination scale inside the capsule (Field 7, Ranger 3 etc.), turn yourself until red end of the compass needle points to 20 degrees. On the E. decl. scale now the direction of travel arrow points in the correct direction. NB! Always check the functionality of the compass before using it in the field. Never expose compasses to extreme temperatures (above + 60C or below -40C), or to magnetic fields, such as knives, radio speakers, magnets etc. Such exposure can cause permanent damage to them. With compasses that have a declination adjuster (Voyager 9020, 8010 and 8040 etc), you simply hold the graduation ring and turn the compass capsule until the red end of the North arrow points towards 20 degrees on the Eastern side of the declination scale. When this is done the compass will automatically adjust the bearing. Remember though, to use the North/South lines on the graduation ring as map north reference lines when taking the bearing on the map. Silva Compasses are also known as official military style directional supplies replicas, army location indicator sales, government issued Boy Scout travelers compass, camping beginners easy to use guides, United States outdoor emergency hiking equipments and tools, genuine natural indicator, etc. Silva Compasses are commonly misspelled as silva lensatic cheap discounted sale, lenstatic lenses, etc.

Tritium Compasses

Tritium Compasses

Tritium compasses are compasses that use tritium illumination. Tritium illumination is the use of gaseous tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, to create visible light. Tritium regularly emits electrons through beta decay, and when they interact with a phosphor material, fluorescent light is created, a process called radioluminescence. As tritium illumination requires no electrical energy, it found wide use in applications such as tritium compasses, emergency exit signs, and illumination of wristwatches. More recently, many applications using radioactive materials have been replaced with photoluminescent materials. These light sources are most often seen as "permanent" illumination in compasses intended for nighttime, or tactical use. Tritium compasses are favored by the military for critical applications where illumination of the glow-in-the-dark sort is desired but a power source may not be available. Tritium lighting is readily sold and used in US and is legal in most of Asia and Australia. While these devices contain a radioactive substance, it is currently believed that self-powered lighting does not pose a significant health concern. Tritium presents no external radiation threat when encapsulated in non-hydrogen-permeable containers. Direct, short-term exposure to small amounts of Tritium is relatively harmless. If a tritium tube should break, one should leave the area and allow the gas to diffuse into the air. Tritium exists naturally in the environment, but in very small quantities. Tritium compasses are also known as: hiking tools night compass, camping equipments travel compasses, military expedition radioactive compass, made in usa emergency navigation tool, compass store, official military nautical sighting, us government night compass, no battery glow in the dark, gaseous tritium compass, luminescent tritium beta compass, etc. Tritium compasses are commonly misspelled as tritum, tritim, compas, campass, glowe in the dark, commpass, etc.
