This is nice. Well built, solid and accurate. It does have some weight to it so that may be a problem for some.

I previously had an Ainsworth pocket transit and found my Brunton to be much more reliable and sturdy. The Ainsworth needle would get stuck due to the design of the copper coil and wasn't waterproof (even by itself in an airplane cargo hold). I haven't had that problem with the hanging design of the needle. The workings and features are much more fluid than those of the Ainsworth. I was also impressed that for the price, the housing was metal and not plastic as I've seen.

IMHO, a properly trained person can use a Brunton more accurately than most folks can use a GPS. I have used pocket transits for years and find taht Brunton is simply the best built and best for the money.

As a geomorphologist, I need to travel to remote areas around the world in both hemispheres. This compass handle well anywhere. Still it will precisely help me to characterize and quantify the angles of forms, faults and stratigraphy in the field.

Pros:  Accurate & versatile
Cons:  Could include a lanyard attachment on body
Would recommend:  yes

Excellent piece of precision equipment. This instrument can be adapted to the personal preferences of the user. It can be read from either end using the white or black arrows of the needle. This instrument can gain accurate azimuth measurements for landmarks up to 45 degrees above or 15 degrees below the plain of the user. This instrument also includes an inclinometer which allows the user to measure declination in either degrees or percentage grade. This feature is not only useful for the surveyor but the navigator can use the instrument for estimating height of a target landmark. The instrument also includes a handy trig chart on the cover which gives the sine and tangent of degree measurements to aid in height, triangulation and range calculations. I would unreservedly recommend this instrument to anyone who wants a quality accurate tool for navigation or survey work.
