This compass and thermometer combination in a handy size works as a zipper pull, key chain, or pendant.

Compass and thermometer have 5-degree graduations

Thermometer shows Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Voted 2/5

The Silva Forecaster is slightly improved over the similar Brunton version. Neither is very useful for navigation beyond just a general reckoning. The thermometer is glued in and is prone to popping out... mine did anyway.

My recommendation is to save your money and buy a real compass. If you want one for general reckoning, I recommend one that you put on your wristband or a Nalgene bottle top with a small compass set in the middle.
