Got mine today. It seems well built but I have yet to find a paracord bracelet that it will fit.
I have to say that I'm very disappointed in this product. I ordered two devices but when they arrived the fire starter on both would not stay in the device. No matter what I tried, they would just slide out. I contacted customer service to ask for a replacement. They sent me one(?) but it had the same problem as the other two. I think the design of the fire starter piece is just shoddy as it looks to be using a small magnet to keep it in. Unfortunately, the magnets are the THREE devices I have now don't work. Not sure I'll be using these now. ** CRKT Response: Thank you for your review, we have talked to our product development team and we are in the process of retooling these accessories to make the detent stronger and eliminate this issue. **
The quality of the item is great. The size is as expected with three devices incorperated into it. Easy to use and attach to a pre-made bracelet. Because of the size, I will wear this only when hiking, but will have in my EDC bag always.

I find it perfect its small enough and its multi purpose. Well built tough plastic, I use the flashlight a lot. The compass is nice along with the fire starter nothing wrong with having a just in case when your out in the woods . The fire starter works great I had to play with it .
The compass is of good quality and the light and fire strike seem to be fine as well. The only thing that surprised me was the size. It is fairly large and if you are already wearing a watch on one wrist it feels a bit awkward to me. To be fair I am not sure how you get three product on one devise and make it smaller, but from a practical use stand point, I really do not see myself wearing something that large on my wrist while backpacking and certainly not on a daily basis.
I ended up making a special strap and hung it off my pack, which kind of defeated the purpose of the compass, since I wanted easy access to it. I will likely go back to my button compass on my watch band.
I'm a little disappointed as the unit is a very hard plastic I had thought it would be a mild softer rubber.
Also this twisty thing seems to be a PITA to deal with for sure. Have to remove it to get it out of packaging. Hmmmm
I'm thinking a slightly thinner overall product made of rubber would grip a bracelet without the twist lock and feel better when wearing it.
It seems to be well made, and the LED light is quite bright, no idea on how long it will last mind you.
Fire starter will be tested, I'll weave some JUTE into my bracelet and see how well it works.
Might pick up the saw bracelet I don't know yet
Overall I suppose this could get you fire, it will get you light and the compass will at least point you in one direction so long as you use it accordingly
JM2CW Oh CHINA was on it
