(a lensatic mapping compass)

If you like the benefits of a direct-read lensatic compass that doesn't require you to rotate the bezel, but you end up carrying an extra compass for map use, we have just the product for you.

The Dakar is a unique compass that functions just like a direct-read military style lensatic compass with the flip-up optic, but instead of being built in a solid metal casing the Dakar lensatic compass is built into a clear baseplate. So now you finally have a lensatic compass more suitable for map use. And unlike most other lensatic compasses, this compass features adjustable declination and a fluid filled capsule -- two features that greatly increase the user-friendliness.

Other features of the Dakar Touring Compass by K&R include the flip-up sighting line, circular and triangular cutouts for map marking, and one degree resolution on the 0-360 degree azimuth scale.

The clear baseplate markings include:
  • 1:25,000 map scale
  • 1:63,360 map scale
  • 1:24,000 map scale
  • cm/mm ruler
  • inch (1/20th) ruler
