Product Information

Navy blue coated canvas outside, for resistance and abrasion.  Foram padding inside, for efficient protection against shocks.  Stainless steeel press-stud closure.  Can be worn on a belt (maximum width 50mm).  With the grommet designed for the compass lanyard you can carry your compass around your neck at the same time as using it, with the protection pouch always "tied" to the compass.

  • Good protection
    against hard knocks: the smooth finish feels soft in your hand, but will not slip, even when wet
  • No parallax error:
    a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity
    This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings
  • Optimum conditions to take bearings
    thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20° field of view, which will accommodate the roughest of sea conditions
  • Most accurate bearing
    the pivot and hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass
  • Soft bottom cell
    engineered using ultra-sonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks
  • Course reading
    from above the compass: you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism

'This is the Plastimo classic and still scores the highest in our test.  It's simple, robust and well designed, with everything encased in rubber, except for the lens and the top of the card....

'The acrylic lens gives the clearest and most accurate read-out, while its position on top of the compass allows you to line up the bold red lubber line directly against the landmark you're taking a bearing on.

'Stows away easily thanks to its small size and light weight.'
