The much loved Silva Expedition Compass goes Global. If you travel abroad frequently to walk, then the Silva Expedition Global compass needle is a must. Before the launch of this new compass, you’d have had to buy three compasses to cope with the three “global” zones (North, South and Equatorial). This compass does it all allowing the needle to settle within the housing wherever you are.
Built to Silva’s incredibly high standards, the Silva Expedition Global compass will soon find a permanent place in your travel rucksack.

The Silva Expedition Global compass comes with a slope card and a distance lanyard. 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. The distance lanyard has two scales on it; 1:25, and 1:50, which facilitates to measure the distance of your hike. Since its soft and bendable it’s easy to place it directly on to your route on the map.
