Higher-end Brunton compasses worthy of your consideration include the 27LU Trooper ($19.99), a prismatic compass with cover, minor and ruler; the 15TDCL Elite ($49.99), another prismatic with all the bells and whistles, including a rotating bezel, minor, sighting line and forestry scale on its crystal-clear base, the 80100, and perhaps the finest compass I've ever seen, the 8099 Eclipse ($79.99).
