Silva was born in 1933, 14 years after modern orienteering became a competitive sport, three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering champions invented the liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and easier to use than other compasses at the time. Silva also launched their first headlamp in 1935 showing their innovation in diverse outdoor sports. Silva compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. As farmland, fields and forests pass underfoot, our instruments guide their steps. At Outback Jacks we stock a range of Silva products including field compass, military compass, expedition compass and Silva headlamps.
