A full-size sighting mirror with Vee-Sight lets you take quick and accurate readings on distant landmarks. A dial with 2° graduations and fixed declination scale makes turning from map bearings to field headings easy. The compact size slips easily in a shirt pocket, readily available for all excursions.
