Since 1894

Navigation: A Legacy of Excellence

Means tireless engineering and over 100 years of experience in earth-science, forestry, S&R and off-trail navigation. It means having a piece of technology that’s over a century old, but is still the top instrument in its class. It means commitment so iron clad, that being the best will never be enough.

PROFESSIONAL COMPASSES

In 1894, D.W. BRUNTON, a Canadian-born geologist and mining engineer, commissioned a skilled watch repairman out of Denver, Colorado to manufacture his invention—the Pocket Transit Compass. The precision instrument became world-famous and freed outdoorsmen of the bulky equipment of that time.

Often simply called a "Brunton", the Brunton Transit compass remains the Gold Standard in areas from Geology to Forestry, Engineering and by other professionals who demand functionality, craftsmanship and durability.
