upgraded the compass

My old compass has been giving me trouble. It's developed a large-ish bubble. I tried to bake it out but it persists. The last time I tried to use it, to find north, it was frustating.

Visited MEC today. Finally used an old gift certificate from the family, a birthday gift from a ways back. Fortunately they don't expire.

Picked up a balanced Suunto MC-2 compass with jewel bearing. With Imperial and Metric rules, a small loupe, magnetic declination adjustment, folding mirror with sight, glow-in-the-dark markings. Lanyard, quick-release clip, and wristlock. Oh, and an clinometer.
