Warrior West 18 – Northern Star Fire Compass

Although it’s less than 1″ in diameter, the Northern Star Fire Compass will alert you to your directional heading no matter what orientation it’s in. You could be leaving my sideways and the compass’ lights will indicate one of eight cardinal directions via NEWS as well as color.

It was originally designed to be affixed to the inside of a SCBA mask to help firearm orient themselves in thick smoke, but it can also be used with other masks such as a CBRNE respirator.

The device is rechargeable (7 hours per charge) but will also accept disposable batteries. It is IP67 rated to 1M and is currently undergoing pressure testing for interested use.

    These are slick. Our new Drägers go into service after tonight’s training. We’ll have to test a few over the summer.

      Enjoy the Dragers. Unless you’re using these in a hard mask or desperate case; this might not be of much use with the 1m water rating. Curious to see how they work for your needs though.

    I piloted this at work very postive/promising results in the firefighting field. For dive work think AGA style full face mask.
