Topic - Compasses - what to buy

Oujmik - on 06 Jun 2014
Looking to pick up a standard hillwalking compass for general navigation (old one broken). The Silva Expedition 4 seems to be the standard, but is it really the best? What makes it good?

I have to admit that I don't really do much map and compass navigation so I don't have much opinion on what makes a good compass. The only features I know I need are a needle that points north and, the rotating dial for bearings and a straight edge to lay on the map, but I can get that for 5 (unless the needle doesn't point north on cheap ones!)
