The Silva Expedition Series is for experienced compass users and professionals - the best choice if you want a baseplate compass with extensive features, a slope card and a scale lanyard.
Featuring easy-handling rubber housing, silicon rubber feet for precision map work, a detachable safety-release distance lanyard. Luminous markings allow you to navigate at night, magnifying lens, a clinometer for measuring slope angle and map-measuring scales in mm or inches and GPS scales 1:25,000, 1:40 000 and 1:50,000. There's a built-in adjuster for magnetic declination (including permanent local adjustment).
The slope card is great both for detecting avalanche risk and for determining how challenging your journey will be. By knowing the slope you can also judge any extra distance that you need to go due to the slope. This model is also equipped with a detachable scale lanyard that works like a ruler. The scale lanyard has two scales on it; 1:25, and 1:50, which makes it easier to measure the distance of your hike. Since its soft and bendable it’s easy to place directly on to your route on the map when you are out in the terrain – or when you are planning for your next adventure.
