I had a Silva Ranger compass for many years and then one day I lost it...a few years had passed and I was looking into survival gear and came across the Hi-Vis Silva Ranger 515. Remembering my experiences with my old Silva I bought the Hi-Vis Model... Funny thing happened after my compass arrived...My wife was cleaning out the bedroom closet and found a fishing vest that I had bought 15 years ago and never used...in the pocket was my old silva!!! Now my son has a piece of my life and a damn good quality navigation tool while I use my new Hi-Vis Silva...We are a Silva family. Thank you ACK!!!
This is one of the best compass you can buy. It has all the features you will ever need. Most people never take advantage of the functionality a real compass provides, because they are too lazy to learn how to use one. Not surprising today. If you want a piece of kit that will always work, in any terrain or weather, day or night...then buy a Silva Ranger...and a book to learn how to use it properly. Once you know it, you will always have a skill that can be utilized anywhere on the planet. Helped me get out of both NY and LA!
