Longtime supplier of orienteering equipment around the world, Silva compasses are widely recognized. Two rubber pads beneath the thumb aid in maintaining good contact with the map. Each compass comes with a hard shell zippered carrying case, with space for a second compass, a magnifier, or an SI finger stick.
A new compass from a new company. The Str8 compass has some few features that stand out: - an adjustable thumb angle. Ever had to worry about whether your direction arrow was pointing straight ahead of you? The Str8 compass has three different angle settings for your thumb strap to avoid that problem - an anti-slip map gripper on the base of the thumb plate - a 95 mm direction line that runs right through the compass module - a sharp corner at the tip to mark your spot on the map
