Brunton Waterproof International LM aluminum pocket transitThis “International”* Brunton LM pocket transit is the most popular aluminum body version because it is waterproof and dustproof.

Do not confuse with the “Conventional” model which is similar only in appearance and function. As with all Brunton pocket transit, if you are working near or below the equator, the International will need to be a specially balanced instrument. Please view this map if using outside the USA.

Tips: All of the Brunton pocket transits we stock feature waterproof/dustproof body construction, needle lift mechanism,inclinometer, magnetic damping, gear driven declination adjustment, and needle balanced for use in the Northern Hemisphere.

Professionals: The GeoTransit can be a real time saver if you are doing many strike and dip measurements. We have been using one in the field for several years. The larger body takes a little getting used to after having used the traditional pocket transit for many years, but the learning curve is not steep.

Students: We stock Brunton compasses in both “degree” (also known as “azimuth”) and “quad” models. Geology students should ask your professor which system they recommend. The dial can be changed out later if required, at a cost of about $60.00. Information about the differences between degrees and quads compasses is at our page: Kooter Sez Brunton Compass

Outside the USA: We only stock the standard USA needle balance. If you will be using a Brunton transit near the equator, Brunton recommends that the needle be specially balanced at the factory for best performance at your exact location. If you are below the equator, special balancing is definitely required.
