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
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
Great Compass, Good Price, Fast Shipping!! Thanks Much!!
I tried different compasses and found only this one meeting all the
technical requirements I needed. Also, ACK had the best possible price
for this product.
Purchased for SAR. Have had it for less than a month and ACK.com
hounding me for a review. Well, so far.... advertised item arrived in
timely manner. Have used compass a couple of times. Easy to set
declination and compass works well so far.
Awesome compass. High vis. Unique adjustable declination.
Clinometer. Lightweight, perfect for taking multiple strikes/dips and
survive a whoops what do mean you dropped it?! Fast Shipping
I've had a Silva Ranger for years ('92). It won my heart over on
the Ice Age Trail in Southern Wisconsin. Leading a group of teenage
scouts, we found ourselves "someplace" (the trail had not been
added to the most current topo's). Thanks to the Ranger (black),
we were able to find 2 widely separated features on the map, shoot
azimuth's and ended up triangulating our location. Recently "old
faithful" apparently grew legs, walked away and I can't find it. So I
found a replacement at ACK. Offering the best price around, I
ordered the Hi-Vis version. Before I could start to wish it would
show up, it arrived. Thanks ACK,! Not only did you have what I
consider the best compass around, your order processing and free
shipping were phenomenal! Having stumbled upon your website
and your awesome order proc.essing, I'll be making more
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!
great price and got it fast
Great Products at Fantastic Prices. This Company is very good to do
business with. Not a rip-off company.
Great compass, has all of the
features that you need!
