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!
Very nice, complete compass.
Showed it to a local club. You
should be getting more orders.
I bought this compass for my
work with our search and rescue
team. It is the one to have...
Very easy to use and perfect for
I have been involved with SAR
and Boy Scouts for years and
the Ranger is THE compass for
accurate orienteering work.
The high visibility is an
excellent option and the one I
choose. Every feature on the
Ranger is thought out,
pertinent to wilderness
navigation and reliable. This
was my 3rd Silva Ranger in 25
years. 1st early 90’s got a
bubble in the liquid after many
years of hard use, 2nd I put in
my wife’s backpack and
replaced it with this new one.
ACK had the best price on the
net I could find, were
responsive in shipping and
everything arrived in perfect
shape. My only suggestion for
ACK is to add to your product
line-up coordinate scale
protractors, rulers, etc
(maptools.com), small water
proof notebooks, and small
pencils which are all required
for serious map work. ACK can
be the one stop shop. Excellent
compass, excellent vendor!
Great Compass Lifetime warranty
is for real. I had an old Ranger
and they replaced it for free!
Since I lost my old silva ranger and had to
replace it, I never had any trouble with it
and the features a great. This new one is
even better, I love the dial layout, the
scale functions and to be able to set the
declination has always been a must for. I
would recommend this compass to
Good compass, does the job and
has some nice features.
