It was a might clever chap who thought this one up. I have tried to get the grandsons to always take something like this, plus a waterproof match box, a survival blanket, and a first-aid kit along whenever they set off from the cottage hunting in the roadless swampland forest of northern Michigan. Now if we could only get them to always remember. The tool seems very solidly made.
Love the day when I ordered this item. great gift for people going to the wild areas. If you wish something better than this - then go for expensive GPS garments, which still has a chance to fail due to the batteries' life. this one is just as great as given in the description. I love it.
