Silva Ranger S features DryFlex™ grip for easy handling and comes with a use-anywhere declination scale inside the capsule. A base plate map-measuring in mm and scales of 1:50,000 and 1:25,000. Ranger S has the additional benefit of 45-degree angle assistance on the mirror sighting function. A go-anywhere tool for serious compass users.
The lanyard is soft and bendable and easy to place directly on to your route on the map. The new graphics contain a more distinct arrow (Ranger) and also a more contemporary font. The colors change to green and black to harmonize with the other outdoor assortment. If you are looking for a basic but yet functional compass for your outdoor adventure, Ranger should be your choice. Thanks to the magnifier you can make sure to see every detail on the map. Our Ranger S mirror sighting compass should be your choice when you must determine direction over long distances. Because you needn’t lift your eyes from the compass in order to look into the terrain, the direction determined with the Silva 1-2- 3 System® becomes more accurate.

We also set the scene for innovation in diverse outdoor sports areas by launching our first headlamp already in 1935. Although our company has changed since then, Silva compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. As farmland, fields and forests pass underfoot, our instruments guide their steps.
As a company, we are navigators that circle the globe, solving cross-country complexities. As individuals, we range from multi-adventurers to everyday exercisers. We test all new products via our ambassadors and compare the findings with other sources, such as the valuable input we receive from clients around the world. All this vast experience and knowledge are injected into the design and harsh testing of our renowned world-class products.
Scandinavia’s varying seasons, especially our rainy autumns and our snowy and dark winters, expose outdoor gear to the ultimate test – and they challenge us as well. We have risen to these challenges time after time. In recent years, our innovative and attractively designed headlamps have received several awards. However grateful for this recognition of our hard work, we continue to constantly reinvent ourselves, passionately searching for the ultimate designs and functions of our products.
Presently, our main business areas are Sport, Outdoor and Professional. Within each of these areas you will find headlamps, compasses, pedometers, binoculars, professional instruments and other products. Every single one of them charged with the unstoppable passion of the Silva people.
