Suunto's MB-6G Global Compass will work whether you're ski touring in Patagonia or Alaska. This analog compass provides specific navigational directions when you can't tell the difference between south and west, and its clinometer will let you know if you're heading up a hill steep enough for avalanches. This compass comes in a durable matchbox with a mirror for easier navigating, and there are luminescent markings to help you orient yourself in low light.

This is my favorite compass. It is compact and light but you can tell it has heavy duty quality that will last a lifetime. The slide is superior to flip open compass which are flimsy and break at the hinges. I have both styles of compass in my gear stash and this is the compass that always comes with me. Best on the market and has adjustable declination which is easy as spinning a screw. It also works below the equator, so if you are planning on traveling abroad I would recommend this compass.
