It goes without saying that technology has the ability to enhance your outdoor experience, but too much reliance can also be a curse. Limitations like battery life, the weather and even Earth’s magnetic regions can affect your adventure tech’s performance. So, when determining your navigation needs, consider the Suunto MC-2G Global Navigator Compass. The MC-2G Global Navigator is the mother of all professional-grade compasses. Its defining feature: it performs accurately all over the world. While most compass needles drag on the casing’s surface when taken out of the magnetic region (there are five), the MC-2G uses Suunto’s patented structural casing, allowing the magnet and needle to work independently of each other. In addition to its go-anywhere usability the MC-2G comes with a nice set of features including a large mirror and additional sighting hole for superior accuracy, a baseplate with a magnifying lens and anti-slip rubber pads and a luminous, two-color bezel. The lanyard, which can be easily detached when working with a map on a flat surface also features a wristlock so you don’t drop it in a fast moving stream.
