Not Your Average Compass
I chose the best compass as my starting point, the Francis Barker NATO Survival Compass. Here’s what the company I buy them from says…
“When your life depends on it you need the best. Built to Military specifications and in-service worldwide, the Francis Barker model 160501 NATO button compass out performs all others in the most extreme situations.”
Then I made them even better.

I started with a Francis Barker NATO Survival Compass…
…and made it even better.
Added a quartz face
A scratch resistant quartz face means my compasses can take more wear and tear than most.
Made it waterproof*
Being able to wear your compass in the sea or when you take a shower means you never have to take it off.
To Create your Life Compass
Designed for life, my compasses are for people who want one they can wear wherever they go.
Your Life. Your Compass.
People have many reasons for choosing a compass pendant. Mine came into existence because I wanted a working compass that was attractive as well as functional. I love the outdoors, fresh air and feeling free, so created a compass up to the task of being with me wherever I go. One I could rely on, that looked good and was a pleasure to wear. A compass pendant to put on ~ and a leave on.
A Little More Detail
Faithful, always there for you
Since these are small compass pendants, they can be worn easily around the neck to provide quick direction checks whilst on the move. With a lightweight and compact design, its appearance as an attractive necklace means it can be worn at all times without looking out of place.
Thanks to their small size, low weight and thoughtful design they’re comfortable to wear every single day.
Truly Working Compasses
Very accurate for its size, the 15mm diameter compass inside was specially designed and is very different from many other ‘button’ compasses available.
These compasses have been designed to meet the quality demanded by military users. Built utilising specialist equipment and personnel, each compass is the ideal choice for anyone looking for a real working compass because it’s simple in concept and yet accurate in use. Compasses built to be used – and to last.
Beautiful and Reliable
Beautiful compass necklaces that are also a strong, reliable navigation aids. Can be used day and night, in all weather conditions. Featuring a military-grade compass and precision luminous dial, these compasses are also waterproof.
Keeping You Safe
Ideal for daily wear around the neck, or alternatively can be attached to your hiking rucksack or jacket if you prefer the silver carabiner option; either way your compass will be easily on hand for making quick checks of heading, to make sure you are not off-course.
The waterproof construction ensures wearability wherever you are, be it snorkelling or taking a shower. The ideal backup to other navigation devices which could fail to work due to flat batteries, extreme conditions or damage.
Are they Waterproof?
As part of my quality control, I discovered that compasses weren’t waterproof so I developed a way to fix that.
Today, you can wear your compass in the rain, in the shower, swimming, snorkelling (and other wet and watery places yet to be added to the list…!)
I’m not allowed to use the term “waterproof” without evidence from formal pressure tests from the big guys. For now, I can call them water resistant.
Rest assured, my compasses have been tested extensively and are “waterproof” enough for me and the 100s of customers who wear them.
Does waterproof matter?
Being able to wear your compass in the sea or when you take a shower means you never have to take it off. My husband wears his non-stop, year in year out, everywhere.
Some of my customers need a waterproof compass because they sail. Others find having their compass on them at all times gives them comfort, a sense of direction.
Whatever your reason, if you never have to take your compass off, you’re never at risk of being without it.
