Silva Ranger CL
This is the compass that won the Editors' Choice Gold Award from Backpacker Magazine.
When precision counts and ease of use matters, you can’t afford to pass up the incredible Ranger Model 515 CL compass. 1:24,000, 1:25,000, and 1:50,000 scales make plotting quick and easy no matter which type of topographic map you’re using. Also, there are 1/20-inch and millimeter rules for mapping and silicone feet for map gripping. All scales come in two colors, so they’re easy to read. They also have a large sighting mirror with a vee notch, so you can take readings on distant landmarks, and a split sighting mirrow so you can follow the bearing while keeping your eye on the sighting target. A geared declination allows adjustment for the difference in degrees between magnetic north and true north, giving you a faster read and reducing chance of error. The clinometer lets you measure angles of inclination. Just hold the compass and measure the angle of the incline. The long side of the compass should coincide with the slope of the terrain. Easy-grip bezel, with white numbers on a black dial, lets you effortlessly find your reading, while luminous points make it easy to find bearings in dim light.Comes with a lanyard, an adjustable slider and screwdriver for convenient carrying.
