Silva Expedition Global Needle Compass For Expert Outdoor Use - Magnetic Global Balanced

The expert Silva Expedition compass, now with a global needle! The Expedition Global is for experienced users and professionals. It is high performing when it comes to accuracy, precision and durability. The global needle also makes the compass flexible and possible to use all around the world.

The compass comes with a slope card and a distance lanyard. The slope card is great both for detecting avalanche risk and for determining how challenging your journey will be. By knowing the slope you can also judge any extra distance that you need to go due to the slope. The distance lanyard has two scales on it; 1:25, and 1:50, which facilitates to measure the distance of your hike. Since its soft and bendable it’s easy to place it directly on to your route on the map.

Expedition Global features DryFlex™ grip for easy handling, a clinometer for measuring slope angle and comes with a built-in adjuster for magnetic declination. It also features map-measuring in mm, inches, scales of 1:25k, 1:40k 1:50k and GPS scales.

The baseplate has a curved-up at the back-end for perfect fit in the hand, magnifying lens and rubber friction feet for precision map work. The distinct arrow and scales/markings in a clear contemporary font combined with lots of transparency in the baseplate makes navigating easier – when activated in light the luminous markings and graduation ring enable night time navigation. The red/black northsouth lines in the capsule bottom ensures easy and safe settling. The needle is made from finest Swedish steel with high quality magnetic features.

If you are in need of a compass with high-end features to use anywhere in the world, the Expedition Global should be your choice!

Silva 1-2-3 System:

  1. Place your compass on the map and use the baseline to make a straight line between your current position and your destination. Make sure Direction of Travel arrow points towards your destination.
  2. Turn the compass housing until the red part of the north/south arrow is parallel with the map meridians and points north on the map.
  3. Lift your compass from the map and hold it horizontally in your hand. Turn yourself and the compass until the red end of the needle is inside the red north/ south arrow. Now the direction of travel arrow will point towards your destination. Take a landmark and start moving. Enjoy!
  4. NOTE: If using a mirror-sighting compass: angle the mirror/lid approximately 45 degrees towards yourself and hold with straight arm out in front of you. Now, while looking in the mirror to see that the needle aligns with the red/black N/S arrow, sight above the mirror (using the sight) towards an object in the field in line with the direction of travel
