The BruntonO.S.S. 70M Proffessional Mirrored Compass is the re-evolution of the award-winning Eclipse 8099. Still featuring the three clinometers system, combined clear base plate for mapping and mirror for sighting, and a round level bubble for more accurate measurements, the 70M has been fitted with our new Brunton O.S.S. alignment system for even greater precision and reliability.
Based on the award-winning Eclipse 8099 compass, the Brunton 70M Professional Mirrored Compass includes the same tested and proven navigation tools as the Eclipse but features the new O. S. S. alignment system for even greater precision. The declination system allows for quick tool-free adjustments and the dual-pivoting sighting mirror is center-mounted to run with the direction of travel. Plus, the clear base plate and magnifier make navigating by map a hassle-free operation.
The advanced Brunton O.S.S. 70M compass improves on the award-winning Eclipse 8099, preserving its robust features while adding a new alignment system for greater precision and reliability. Orbital navigation uses a single color and reduces parallax; dual-pivoting mirror enables precise headings and is center-mounted to run with your direction of travel. Meridian insert preserves Brunton's patented, tool-free declination system and keeps meridian lines down on the map for easy and precise headings. Magnetized disc is more accurate than conventional needles and settles quickly for fast, accurate bearings. Antistatic, liquid-filled dial with jeweled bearing features 1deg gradations to ensure accuracy; sighting mirror improves accuracy. Ergonomic rubber shoe on bottom grips map surface and is comfortable to hold. Declination adjustment scale allows you to account for the difference between magnetic and true north; scale on base is adjustable to your location. 3 clinometers measure slope angles for determining snow slope stability and surveying; 2 of the clinometer scales offer 5deg increments and 1 offers 1deg increments. USGS map scale of 1:24,000, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) and mile scales offer position accuracy. Waterproof field reference cards includes navigational, topographical and survival information that store in the compass. The Brunton O.S.S. 70M compass includes a built-in magnifier, protective, flip-down cover and lanyard.
