The Silva Ranger 515 CL compass delivers superior accuracy, even in the most demanding conditions. Split-sighting mirror for superior accuracy when navigating on distant landmarks. Three scales for quick, easy plotting with any topographic map. Silicone feet provide positive grip on a map. The geared declination allows you to set and forget the declination for the area you are in, ensuring constant compensation for this variable when taking bearings. The declination scale sets easily from the bottom of the compass. A clinometer lets you measure angles of inclination.

This is the best map compass I have ever used. First I thought why do I need this? I have used my compass for years. This Ranger is so much easier to shoot an azimuth, stay on your heading, but most of all it is the ideal compass for finding yourself and places on a Topo Map. My son and grandson have many compasses similar to the Silva Ranger, but all of them are inaccurate, but up to 20 degrees. This Silva Ranger is dead on.
This was the absolute best price I could find for a GREAT compass! I am an amatuer geologist and hiker as well so the compass clinometer combination was exactly what I needed. The easy to read dial and it has all the features I need for sighting azimuths, declination, etc. An excellent compass at a great buy!
