Developed using color-impregnated composite materials for the body, the ComPro Pocket Transit International compass is a lighter, more affordable option than Brunton's Geo Pocket Transit, but still delivers the same great results. The compass incorporates a cast NdFeB rare-earth magnet that's precisely balanced on a sapphire bearing. The powerful magnet, which resists demagnetization better than other types of magnets, seeks magnetic north remarkably quickly and allows for faster readings. The compass also takes vertical measurements to +/- 90 degrees (or 100-percent grade), with 5-percent grade scale increments. Add in waterproof O-rings and you have an ideal compass for almost any on-the-go application.
Professionals will delight in the ComPro's high degree of precision, with azimuth and vertical accuracy of +/- 1/2 degree (with 1-degree graduations). The accuracy is further improved by the short and long sights and the precision-aligned mirror with convenient "see-through" sighting capability. As a final bonus, the compass offers magnetic declination adjustment when traveling through regions with magnetic variations, allowing for east or west declination settings to 180 degrees.
The ComPro, which boasts a 0-to-360-degree scale and comes with a durable leather carrying case, is backed by a one-year warranty.
