Suitable for entry into the orientation. It is built mainly for simple orientation. It is easy to read, flat, very light and is therefore also suitable for orienteering competitions. Readings of about 1.0Á.
Kasper and Richter made the Alpin PRO Sighting Map Compass with a flip-up prism optic, so you can either use this compass like a standard baseplate with a two-degree resolution rotating bezel, or you can flip up and take a direct bearing reading off of the internal compass card with one-degree resolution and half-degree accuracy. The thermo-elastic capsule flexes so it won't accumulate bubbles when the temperature changes or develop hairline cracks if you accidentally drop the Alpin PRO Compass. Use the clinometer on the reverse side to figure out slope degrees when you're ski touring. *Nylon carry case included.
