These compasses were patented in 1894 by David W. Brunton and can be adjusted for declination angle according to the user’s location on the Earth. Holding the compass at waist level, the user looks down into the mirror and lines up the target, needle and guide line that is on the mirror.

These compasses can also be used in areas with great magnetic force. Most traditional compasses experience giving accurate location or readings when in a region with abnormal magnetism like in a field containing magnetite or iron-containing materials (ships, airplanes, etc). But with Brunton compass, measurements are unaffected by the magnetic fields thus are able to give the user accurate and reliable readings.

Another trivia - did you know that even the United States Army also uses such compasses for their crew-served artillery? That is how much reliable the Brunton’s capability is! So why not get yourself one! For professional use or just for outdoor camping, these compasses are really useful and would not let you down! Reasonably priced and reliable – having one would be memorable!
