The Expert SILVA compass, now with a global needle! The SILVA Expedition 5 Global is for experienced users and professionals. With the global needle, you don’t have to take the magnetic zones into account – this makes the compass flexible and possible to use all around the world.
The Expedition 5 Global is high performing when it comes to accuracy, precision and durability. Additional features include measuring scales for positioning (GPS), graduation in degrees and mils (360/6400), integrated adjuster for magnetic declination, magnifying lens and rubber feet for precision map work.
The compass has a luminous graduation ring and markings for compass reading in the dark. Once activated by daylight/flashlight it will give light up to 4 hours of light. The included scale lanyard and slope card makes it easier to quickly make a distance judgement of your route or to plan your route in advance.
