Brunton's TruArc 3 baseplate compass is easy to use with a big solid rotating bezel and is the basic requirement for navigation using maps.
Brunton says: The classic scouting compass with modern updates, the TruArc 3 base plate compass is equipped with the TruArc Global Needle system in the characteristic form outdoorsmen have trusted for generations.
Metric and standard scales, tool-less declination compensation, plus no-frills reliability make this a must for everyone’s outdoor pack.
Brunton's TruArc 3 is easy to read and to use and is about the minimum requirement to use the standard method of taking a map bearing and following it.
The Global Needle feature means you can use it confidently in Southern Chile or Argentina etc, some compasses have a needle that doesn't work easily in southern latitudes and are 'balanced ' for the Northern hemisphere - no such worries with this one.
Comes with a lanyard.
