For Ranger School, you are required to bring one compass. I'd recommend you bring two. I brought two, because I'd heard horror stories of people that lost their compass while on land nav and got dropped.
For Sapper Leader Course, you are required to bring two compasses.
Try to get this from your unit because these aren't cheap. If you do have to buy yourself a compass we recommend you get a tritium lensatic compass, and not these ones. You have to "charge" these with your white light and that will only slow you down on land nav and patrols. The only reason we sell these is because they are significantly cheaper than the tritium compasses and we want to give people options.
