Topic - Reversed Polarity of compasses and Hydration packs

SCrossley on 24 Jun 2013
Hi,
out walking Saturday and as we lost Whernside it became evident we were out of position (lost) my friend and I started orientating our maps and all of a sudden we noticed we had our maps opposite ways around, so we compared compasses, and my friends was 180 out to mine. To cut the story short she has an Osprey Hydration pack with a magnetic gizmo to keep the tube mouth piece out of the way, which if left dangling, just happens to dangle of the compass sized pocket in the aforesaid sack. We ended up 7k out of position looking at the Howgills rather than Whernside :-) So just watch out for them thar Magnets.
