"The Silva Ranger SL Compass is a precision instrument that should be found in every outdoor enthusiast's rucksack, regardless of the part of the world, activity or scope of the adventure. A compass will help you to find your way for many years, and there are no batteries that can go flat."

The Silva Ranger SL, previously known as the Ranger 27, is a small sighting compass, one that Ray heralds as "the perfect backup compass". It features a built-in sun dial, a sighting mirror in the lid, as well as a tough safety pin so that it can be attached to your jacket, thereby allowing you to keep both hands free. Ideal as a reserve compass for those attending one of our Wilderness Navigation courses.

The Ranger Series is specially suited for more experienced users, such as backpackers, mountaineers, hunters, fishermen etc. Equipped with the patented red/black North/South lines in the capsule for quick and correct course setting, North indicator on the red end of the compass needle and luminous markings for accurate navigation in the dark.

  • Sapphire jewel bearing for friction-free movement of the compass needle
  • Durable hot-stamping of scales/graduations
  • Mirror sighting for accurate bearings
  • Patented red/black orienting lines inside the compass housing
  • Calibrated for use in the Northern Hemisphere
  • Map measuring scales in millimetres
  • Built in sun-watch
  • Pin-on jacket function for hands-free use
  • Luminous markings for night navigation
  • Comes with a 5 year warranty

  A lid clip would be useful BUT it does what I need. Will be a good back up compass.

  Great little compass, I use mine to cross reference my main compass bearings as the needle movement is so smooth. Good solid build quality and a handy safety pin for hands free navigating. The sun time dial is a fun little feature to mess around with. A great starter compass or reserve compass!
