UTM Scale
A pocket sized tool with slot scales for 1:24,000, 1:25,000, and 1:50,000 scale maps. The 1:24,000 and 1:25,000 scales allow you to divide a 1km map grid with 10m precision. The 1:50,000 scale allows you to divide a 1km map grid with 20m precision. The tool also has a compass rose along its outside edge marked in degrees. This makes plotting or measuring a bearing a snap. The small size of this tool will allow you to keep it handy in your pocket.

A band of white ink around the edge of the tool makes reading the compass rose easier and also keeps the tool from “disappearing” when you place it on the map. There is also a lanyard hole in the upper left corner.

Printed on plastic stock, the tool is about the thickness of a credit card. The ink is coated to protect it from abrasion.

Rite in the Rain 3x5 notebook
Fighting through pouring rain to copy a grid down or plan a dead reckoning leg is exponentially easier with Rite in the Rain. No soaked notebooks that become unreadable, these are a requirement for anyone who does work outdoors. 

Rite in the Rain weatherproof 3" x 5", Green Cover, Universal Pattern (No. 935-3)

These are the perfect size for shoulder pockets or admin poches on your chest rig, PC, or LBE.   

WEATHERPROOF PAPER: 100 pages / 50 sheets per pocket notepad. All-Weather paper won’t turn to mush when wet and will repel water, sweat, grease, mud, and even survive the accidental laundry mishap. Make sure your pocket notebook stays RIGHT in the Rain.

WIRE-O BINDING: Tough impact-resistant Wire-O binding won't lose its shape in your back pocket or backpack. Unlike a standard spiral notebook, Wire-O keeps your open pages aligned and intact.

WRITE IN THE RAIN: Use a standard pencil like a #2 Ticonderoga or an All-Weather Pen like a Fisher Space Pen and your notes will stay intact. Standard Ballpoint pens will work when paper is dry. Water-based inks will bead off Rite in the Rain paper sheets.

WATERPROOF NOTEBOOK COVER: Polydura material creates a tough but flexible outer shell. Whether you're needing a hiking journal, outfitting your police gear, starting a golf journal, or just keeping a shower notebook, the Polydura Cover material will defend your field notes from scratches and stains.

RECYCLABILITY: Unlike synthetic waterproof paper, wood-based Rite in the Rain is completely recyclable. Please recycle Rite in the Rain as you would other white or printed papers.

Mechanical Pencil (Brands will vary)
We have found that the .7 and .9 mm mechanical pencil leads work best for our purposes. The 0.9 mm, HB (#2.5), Black Lead in these is great for map work and general writing tasks int he field. Just large enough that it doesnt tear or punch through, but fine enough to plot a precise point on a map or do somewhat detailed work. The Yellow Barrel is easy to spot when you drop it in the field and is durable enough to last through a few land nav courses. Brands will vary, either Pentel or Jovely (made in South Korea).

Automatic pencil features a 4mm fixed sleeve for template work and technical drawings. Metallic-mesh grip delivers precision and control. Technical drafting pencil offers a concealed eraser and automatic lead advance. Refillable with Lead and refill eraser. The 4mm tip length makes it ideal for use with straight edges and protractors. Pre-loaded with PHB lead; never needs sharpening, is super strong and produces a clear dark line. Always carry a backup in the field, either a second mechanical or an old school number 2.

Two Staedtler Black Waterproof (Alcohol) Universal Markers (One Fine, one Superfine) 

For Use On Almost All Surfaces, perfect for marking laminated maps and pre-formatted order and report shells (OPORD, FRAGO, SPOTREP, etc). Will also mark on CDs & DVDs (who uses CDs anymore?). With excellent smudge proof, color brilliance & waterproof qualities - The specially designed ink dries in seconds.

Permanent, low odor & dry safe (marker won't dry up easily in the field.
