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.
Silva's 15 cm flag has a reflective diagonal stripe for great visibility for night orienteering. The smaller size is popular for training, park and urban events, and school orienteering kits. The flag comes with a cord and snap hook attached for easy hanging.
The Silva Map Measurer Path is a traditional analog tool to measure distance on a map. It shows 8 different scales (4 on each side) for maps of 1:15,000, up to 1:750,000. For orienteers, it is easy to adapt the 1:100,000 or the 1:50,000 scale for a 1:10,000 or 1:5,000 map. Or use the 1:100,000 scale to measure cm directly on the map (eg. 30 on the map measurer = 30 cm on the map).
