Similar to the standard Alpin, but with metric map scales. You still get the features of a built-in clinometer, luminous bezel, and an all-new declination adjustment method. Now the inner ring can be set to your current declination -- making super-easy adjusted readings.
Tested and developed in cooperation the BRK Mountain Rescue Service, this precision compass from K&R was built with durability in mind. What really separates the Alpin from the rest of the mirror sighting field is the thermo-elastic fluid filled capsule and the solid metal mirror (polished aluminum).
K&R's thermo-elastic capsule is flexible, not brittle. This accomplishes two things: 1) the capsule flexes with temperature changes to keep out bubbles, and 2) the capsule doesn't develop leaking hairline cracks when you drop it (or step on it).
And since the sighting mirror is made of solid metal housed in a durable ABS lid -- there is no fragile glass or plexiglas to crack or break. This is truly a work-horse with precision accuracy.
