Why Silva?

At SILVA, we have experienced all aspects of nature since we started in 1933. We design and test all our products in Sweden, and like all products, we let our headlamps prove their durability and reliability in the rough Scandinavian weather conditions. We developed our first headlamp in 1935 – the Zeiler, and ever since, headlamps have been our key focus product category together with compasses.

Today we have compasses, flashlights, bags and other equipment to help you enjoy more of the outdoors. We constantly evaluate and update our assortment, and our goal is to offer you the most smart and reliable outdoor equipment.


Since 1933, our mission has been to help people enjoy the outdoors even more. We put pride in our history and the fact that we have been designing and producing compasses and headlamps for more than 85 years. Read more about our history.
