The Silva Expedition S Compass is an advanced navigation tool for experienced users and professionals. Based on the tried-and-tested baseplate design of the classic Expedition 15TDCL model, the Expedition S expands on this functionality with brand new features. If the terrain demands a mirror sighting compass, the Expedition S is your optimal companion.

The Expedition S brings two new features to the plate: a slope card, and a distance lanyard. The slope card is great for detecting potential avalanche risk, and for determining how challenging your journey ahead may be. Thus, by understanding the terrain better, you can judge any extra distance that you need to travel.

The distance lanyard has two scales on it - 1:25 and 1:50 - which allows you to measure the distance of your hike. Since it is soft and flexible, it is easy to place it directly onto your route on the map.

Features:
  • Sighting mirror with hole for the most accurate bearings
  • Declination adjustment
  • Built-in clinometer
  • Magnifying lens
  • Mirror angle assistance
  • Luminous markings for low-light navigation
  • Silicon rubber feet for increased friction when taking map readings
  • Silva 1-2-3
  • GPS scales
  • Made using robust materials to withstand tough conditions

  Fantastic piece of equipment. This has now become my number one 'go to' compass and will be used and abused.

  Great compass, especially useful is the permanent declination adjustment. The lanyard has a silly design (Silva, what were you thinking?) that opens very easily, but I replaced it anyway.

  I bought this compass to replace a similar Recta model that had grown a bubble and had a cracked base plate. I've used Silva for years. I actually use a Plastimo Iris 50 sighting compass for taking bearings.

  I decided to go for this Silva sighting compass after losing my previous Suunto compass as I like the serious quality. I am also happy with the markings. I Will look forward to using this for work and pleasure, which is originally why I purchased it for. I am very happy.

  A well made sighting compass which has everything needed to keep on track. This item is exactly as described and at a reasonable price. I'd have preferred the magnifier to be slightly larger as I'm old now but it works all the same. Top end features like declination adjustment and some nice touches like the scale on the tape help make it very usable. I took it on a remote Swedish canoe trip and found it did all I needed and probably more. Basically it is an upgraded Ranger model so if you don't need some features then the ranger may be a cheaper option but this one is top end.

  I had an old version of this years ago. Lent it out many years ago and never got it back! This is a bigger better model with a bezel easier to turn with gloves., easier to use in a white out or cold wet times of year, Good lanyard with easy break snap . The clinometer easy too use and with the card also helps with that prediction of avalanche on slopes. Handy little card that when route planning. With the packaging think Ill make a protective pouch for it. Oh and it will not be lent to anyone!

  Top kit , I never realised how old my last Silva was until I bought this one, I haven't been out with it yet but it looks the dog's, best kit I've seen in 30 years.

  Compact and well built, I've used Silva compasses for many years and they have become a good and trusted friend on the trail. Easy to use and functional, the sighting mirror has more than one use.

  This is a great product. It has many uses, aside from being a compass. I carry it on or with me all the time. In its own leather case, of course.
