Silva Race Jet Compasses

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.

The Silva Race Jet compass has no markings on the compass housing except for the direction line. The housing does not turn.
The compass comes in left or right hand models.

The Silva Race S Jet compass has coloured sections in a band around the outside edge of the compass housing. The housing does not turn.
An interesting feature of this compass is that while North, South, East and West are indicated on the compass housing, East and West appear opposite to what one would normally expect on a compass. East is marked to the left of North. The idea is that, since the housing does not turn, when your north arrow points at E. you are heading east. This works for all for compass points.
The Silva Race S Jet is available only as a left hand compass. Our apologies to those of you who would want it as a right model.
