The tactical transit when precision matters! The Brunton Tactical Transit offers the same functionality, quality, and durability that the U.S. Military has depended on since WWI. Built with a green composite body and the same internal components as other Brunton transits, this lightweight tool enables accurate navigation and readings of bearing & angle. Weather-resistant plastic case included.

Needle Balancing: If your main region of transit use will not be in the United States, your needle will need a special balance.


  • Traditional transit measurement method.

At Brunton, our passion for the outdoors is carried over into our daily tasks and is easily recognized through the innovative and professional grade products we bring to the market. We offer an opportunity to work with a diverse and creative team who appreciate the outdoor culture.


In 1894, D.W. Brunton created the Pocket Transit: a compact, precision compass that freed outdoorsmen from the bulky equipment of the time, and set the course we still follow: never accept, never settle. Our home and headquarters in Riverton, Wyoming, at the foot of the Wind River range, is both inspiration and proving ground for products created to that creed, made for those who overcome and achieve. The drive to excel changed everything back in 1894; it matters more today.
