NAVIGATION: A LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE Brunton means tireless engineering and over 100 years of experience in earth-science, forestry, search and rescue, and off-trail navigation. It means have a piece of technology that is over a century old, but still is the top instrument in its class. It means commitment so iron clad that being the best will never be enough. 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.
