My friends over at ITSTactical recently published a blog post about their search for a high quality watch strap compass to replace the now discontinued Sunnto Clipper. A quick Google search turned up a bunch of alternatives, many of which the readers at ITSTactical have already pointed out via the comments there.
As this is something I’d like to be able to find also I thought I’d open this up to all of you to see if you knew of anywhere that still stocks and sells the Suunto Clipper compass or whether or not you know of a high quality alternative watch compass?
Basically what we’re looking for is a reliable button compass that won’t pop out of the plastic holder in a few days, won’t easily get demagnetized, and which can be secured to a watch band like a G-Shock or 20mm width strap.
If you have any suggestion please post a link in the comments below or over on the original ITSTactical post – either way is cool with me. Thanks in advance for your help!
