Suunto gave the M-2D Compass an adjustable declination and magnifying glass to help intermediate to advanced users find their way through the backcountry with accuracy. Set the declination at home and leave math equations out of navigation. This Suunto compass works anywhere in the northern hemisphere.

Suunto M-2D Compass

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used a friend's M-2D during 50-mile backpack trip after I lost my Suunto M-3DL. This compass is light (1.2 oz) and, best of all, it has an adjustable declination. I simply can't keep the "add (subtract?)-declination-to-the-map-reading-vs.-subtract (add?)-declination-to-the-compass-bearing-thing" straight in my head. Before trip I check current magnetic declination at NOAA then I set it and forget it!



Compass can also be used to measure interesting tracks in the snow!

Decent for the weight

    Weighing merely at 1.2 oz, a basic compass with a magnetic declination adjustment (able to set east and west at 2° increments) isn't bad at all. The construction (material and build) certainly isn't something to write home about, but it'll get the job done when your primary navigation fails. Keep it with me with my survival kit. Got in on sale at about twenty percent off MSRP....probably would not have gotten it at full price.
