Kanpas supply and sponsor the orienteering sector worldwide and that’s a good thing for Hikers.
There are many compass manufacturers globally and not all can adhere to quality.
Like us, I am sure you’ve spent quite a bit of money on gear over the years, that turns out to be junk!
Kanpas are proven and are favoured by national teams in world orienteering championships. (Google them!!)
Unfortunately, they are a little unknown in the world of hiking, as they don’t have massive marketing budgets.
Just like K2MountainGear they prefer word-of-mouth and let the product quality do the real talking.
We have tested the over 20 compasses from Kanpass and selected our preferred choice.
Because everyone has different needs, we have just 6 versions.
This covers the younger explorers, all-rounders and even expedition level.
Importantly your not buying junk…
All are durable, accurate and importantly configured for the southern hemisphere.
