Brunton Transit International Waterproof Compass Range - 5008, 5010 & 5012

The Brunton Pocket Transit was first patented in 1894 by David Brunton (a geologist) and continues to be an industry leading compass and measuring tool used by geologists, foresters, surveyors and archaeologists. We supply the 3 main compasses that Brunton manufacture, the Geo Pocket, Com-Pro & the newest addition to the range the potentially revolutionary Axis Compass.

Let's start with the two traditional compasses.

Brunton 5010 Geo Pocket Transit International Waterproof Compass
BRUN5010The Geo Pocket Transit Compass, incorporates feedback from professionals to make this the ultimate compass. The solid aluminum, waterproof Geo Transit contains a fast, magnetic north seeking, rare-earth magnet, balanced on a sapphire jewel bearing for quick measurements. The most noticeable feature is the hinge inclinometer, accurate to +/- 2°. This feature allows simultaneous dip and dip direction measurements, reducing the number of measurements required in the field. An innovative needle design can be locked or unlocked.

With a body made of composite materials, this Transit Compass is a lighter, more affordable alternative to 5010. Like the 5010 it also incorporates a cast NdFeB rare-earth magnet, precisely balanced on a sapphire bearing, resulting in a powerful magnet, which quickly seeks magnetic north and permits fast readings.
