A lightweight, compact pair of binoculars is an underestimated aid. They are not just for watching birds and other animals. From a kayak you have to find the right routes among outcrops and islands so that you don’t head in the wrong direction. Binoculars can help with route choices through valleys or over hills when out walking. Silva’s binoculars are compact and sturdy enough for the great outdoors – natural travel companions that can be packed in your rucksack with the same straightforwardness as your compass.
