A topnotch international compass for professionals on the move, the Brunton Pocket Transit International is compact, versatile, and precise. The compass features Brunton's international suspension, which was introduced in the late 1970s as more and more field professionals found themselves working on projects throughout the globe. The international design effectively reduces needle "dip" when professionals travel to different hemispheres, so users don't have to buy new compasses for each region they visit. The compass is built around powerful Alnico V magnets, which are mounted on a polished, cupped sapphire jewel bearing for quick, smooth measurements. The compass also takes vertical angle measurements to +/- 90 degrees (or 100 percent grade), with 5-percent grade scale increments. Professionals will delight in the Pocket Transit's high degree of accuracy, with azimuth and vertical readings that are precise to within +/- 1/2 degree (with 1-degree graduations and 10-minute readability for both). Additional features include magnetic declination adjustment with east and west declination settings to 180 degrees, short and long sights for increased accuracy when sighting azimuth or vertical angles, a precision-aligned mirror with convenient "see-through" sighting capability, and a waterproof cast-aluminum body that's virtually indestructible.
