The Hampton Nautical Solid Brass Clinometer compass easily folds to fit in your pocket. The compass card has both the standard 0 - 360 degree scale, as well as the 0 - 64 Mil scale (one yard at 1,000 yards).
The cardinal points are luminous for easy glow-in-the-dark viewing. It features a standard glass bezel with two lines at 45 degree angles. The bezel also rotates with detents so you can change the heading reference a known amount without looking at the compass.
The front sight has a magnifier to simultaneously view the magnetic heading when taking a sight. Folding the sight down operates a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass bearing. On the side of the compass is a needle freeze mechanism to hold a reading.
This solid brass compass comes with solid rosewood box that has the Hampton Nautical anchor with rope logo embedded into the top. The box is a smooth and polished finish wood with a green felt on the inside to protect the compass.
