Breaking News – Compass Caddy Kickstarter

Ever got frustrated with trying to use your walking poles and compass at the same time? Well there’s now a solution, the Compass Caddy, or there will be if there are enough backers on Kickstarter to make this a reality! The Compass Caddy easily clips onto most standard walking poles, and holds your compass firmly in place and easily to hand when you want it.

In the video below Peter Knight, inventor of the Compass Caddy explains how the idea came about and how to use the Compass Caddy.

This might well see us getting those poles out again, especially as you can use them for a nifty little trick. You can use the pole in order to take your compass bearing in the first instance before lining it up so you can then easily walk on the bearing.

We’ll be getting out mitts on one of these to try out on the hill before they’re officially launched so we can try one out on the hills of Snowdonia, so stay tuned!
