Have you ever walked out of a subway station in the steel-and-glass canyon of a new city, map in hand, and wondered which way to go? That won’t happen when you’re carrying Silva’s new Metro compass.
Developed in partnership with elite Swedish orienteerers; their defining characteristics are user-friendliness and world class quality.
Silva has been world leading in compasses since 1933, with quality, precision and user-friendliness making them the favourite of orienteers around the world. The new compasses’ characteristics include increased transparency, a better thumb grip and a smaller capsule that reduces the risk of bubbles. One of the models also has turnable housing, something that Silva identified as being desired by the target group. Silva is also launching an updated magnifier that is compatible with both left-hand and right-hand models.
The series most popular among mountaineers, backpackers and hunters has expanded. The Silva Ranger traditional base-plate compass is joined by two mirror-sighting models—Silva Ranger S and Silva Ranger SL. While all three feature a detachable safety-release lanyard and luminous markings for night navigation, each also bears something unique.
