User Review: Brunton 8096-AR
Price Paid: $40
I’m an adventure racer and an adventure race director. As a racer this is the compass I have settled on after trying many. As a race director I often hold navigation clinics in conjunction with our events. Therefore I wanted a compass that worked for everyone. This compass is ideal.
It has the standard declination adjustment so there is no need to remember if I need to add or subtract when I’m in a sleep deprived race state. It has the baseplate scales to allow you to recheck plots in the field. It has the circle in the circle system so you can’t confuse which end of the needle points north.
But what I think is best about the compass is the awesome support from Brunton. The compass has a lifetime warrantee so if there is ever a problem, just send it back. I’ve never had any problems with anyone at Brunton. (I've posted this review in several locations so I apologize if you've read it elsewhere - I love the compass and am happy to say so in any review forum).
