Product Overview

Land Navigation has become a perishing skill. With the advent of GPS, people are becoming more and more dependent on electronic devices for navigation purposes. While GPS has many positive benefits, it does not replace a map and compass. We view GPS as support equipment, and the Compass to be the primary tool for navigation in unknown territory. This pouch was designed to keep this vital piece of equipment ready at hand, and well protected. Inspired by the USGI nylon compass pouch, we've built this pouch to withstand the rigors of off-trail navigation, while still offering an excellent fit and function.

The GP-NAV Pouch is made from 7oz Wickett & Craig Leather, and is designed to fit the Suunto MC2, Silva Ranger, and Cammenga 3H/27. It will also fit the standard Altoids tins for use as a PSK(Personal Survival Kit). We have included a hole in the pouch lid to pass the compass lanyard through, allowing for neck carry and to keep the pouch attached to the compass. The belt loop will accommodate up to a 2" wide belt, and also has the option of mounting vertically on a pack strap. Shoulder strap velcro loops are long enough to accommodate most shoulder straps. Excess strap can be trimmed off with a scissors. The optional PSK tin is the standards Altoids size tin.

A note on the Cammenga Lensatic Compass: The Cammenga 3H/27 compass is taller than common orienteering sighting mirror compasses such as the Suunto MC-2. While this compass pouch was designed for the flatter sighting mirror compasses, it will fit the Cammenga just fine. The fit will be somewhat tight initially, but after a couple days the leather will stretch and the compass can be pulled out with ease.

If you've got a compass that is not listed, send us an email with the dimensions and we will let you know if it will fit. 

*Available in Brown only.

    Strong and great looking. Need a bit of stretching for my compass as this is a constructed of good leather. I love it.

    Prompt delivery. Excellent craftsmanship. Fits both compasses, as advertised. I'm not Thor Heyerdahl or Fyodor Konyukhov and this is overkill for my humble adventures but it feels and looks so great that it is hard to resist the pleasure of owning and using such an awesome piece if gear.

    Worth the Wait

    I have been waiting for this to come back in stock for a little while. Finally snatched one up. As expected from Sagewood, it is very well made. Perfect fit for my Suunto and protects it well from scratches or damage. I've already had some fun breaking it in on a long day hike. Looking forward to using it more.

    Great size and Quality

    This is an exceptional leather pouch. It is a perfect fit for my Compass or if I want to put an Altoids tin fire kit or fishing kit it is just the right size. I would highly recommend this pouch.

    Great Idea & Awesome Execution

    Posted by Erik Deran on Nov 30th 2017

    In my opinion, keeping a compass on your belt is just as important as keeping a knife on your belt because you are much more likely to lose your pack than to lose your belt. I jumped at the first opportunity to get the GP-NAV Pouch, especially since it matches my awesome Sagewood knife sheath. And I am definitely not disappointed -
    great quality product that will last a lifetime!
