In thru hiking or camping or even just day hiking, finding your way around is very important. There are few road signs on trails. The only landmarks are trees, streams, and mountains. Due to this, you will need equipment to be able to find your way around.
We offer GPS devices like the Garmin GPS72H Hand held GPS. These devices are useful, relying on satellites orbiting from up on high to relay accurate and precise data to help you navigate yourself around. However, GPS devices require batteries, and if you are on a months-long thru hike, you might not want to carry all the spare batteries needed to operate a GPS, in addition to the batteries you would need for flashlights or lanterns.
For a device that does not use batteries, we recommend a PPI 2 Inch Diameter Compass. It has a long lanyard that enables hands-free carryin, so you can just take a quick glancwe at it while hiking rather than having to hold it constantly or dig into your backpack to retrieve it. and we are offering 20% off the retail price of $14.12, for a sales price of $11.30.
