Comments about Highland Millworks Highland by XS Scuba Snap Compass:
Essentially a clear plastic floating-card capsule clamped into an anodized brass mounting ring that is shackled with a SS bolt snap. The mounting ring and snap are well done and a bit massive: will change your weighting calculations. The Capsule is good quality and easily read; typical of better quality units from Suunto and others. Lubber line ring is not captive; it can pop off in the inevitable rough handling that BCDs get. When it happened to mine, the ring snapped back into place and showed no apparent damage. Maybe just a matter of time before it gets lost.
So, price has to be attributed to mounting hardware. Not an unusually high-quality capsule, and loss of orienting ring is a distinct possibility.
