SILVA COMPASS EXPEDITION
The SILVA Expedition Series is for experienced users and professionals. The Expedition series has been a global leader when it comes to accuracy, precision and durability for many years. The SILVA Expedition Series comes with two completely new features: a Slope card and a Scale lanyard.
SILVA Expedition features easy-handling Dryflex™ housing, silicon rubber feet for precision map work, detachable safety-release lanyard, night-enabling luminous markings, magnifying lens, a clinometer for measuring slope angle, map-measuring scales in mm or inches, 1:25,000, 1:50,000 and GPS scales, plus built-in adjusters for magnetic declination (including permanent local adjustment).
The Expedition can also map-measure 1:40,000.
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 scale 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. The new graphics contain a more distinct arrow (Expedition) and also a more contemporary font.
If you are in need of a traditional baseplate compass with high-end features, the Expedition should be your choice. If the terrain demands for a mirror sighting compass Expedition S is your optimal companion.

Three entrepreneurial brothers. One great invention. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and our story began. Not only was it the first compass of its kind, but is also set the global standard for how navigation works. The SILVA brand was born.
A few years later, in 1935, we expanded our business to our new invention, and the first headlamp, Zeiler. We have since then continued to evolve and set trends for outdoor equipment.
Since 1933, our goal has beed to develop outstanding outdoor equipment and to always keep moving forward. We highly value the opinions of our users, because without them, we wouldn’t be able to create, invent and develop the way we have, and still do today. We put great trust in our ambassadors, who use our products with pride and grant us a teriffic source of valuable input. Our Scandinavian climate varies quite drastically, and offers us loads of different weather types and environments. We cherish the contrasts of our homes different locations and seasons, and they are our source of inspiration. The dark and snowy winters, warm and sunny summers and rainy falls, are putting our outdoor equipment to the greatest of tests: the constant variety of our weather conditions. Our development of outdoor equipment has made history.
In recent years, we’ve won awards for our innovative and attractively designed headlamps, and we continue to push ourselves to evolve and deliver great outdoor equipment.
Today, we focus on three main user areas; Sport, Adventure and Work. Each one of these areas are constantly evaluated and updated, for you to enjoy high quality products and always feel prepared and ready with SILVA.
