The newest compass from Silva, the Arc Jet, has a reworked capsule design, and new removable thumb pad to allow users to customize the feel between thumb and map. The clear capsule allows for excellent map visibility. The Arc Jet comes with two thumb straps - a softer and a firmer version for personal choice.
The Silva Arc Jet OMC compass is Silva's new wrist compass. One loop of the adjustable elastic strap goes around the wrist, while the other fits over the thumb, allowing it to sit comfortably and stay in place. The wrist compass fits on either left or right wrist. It is a super option for mountain bike and ski-orienteering .
With much improved physical changes, this new control station functions identically to its predecessor, the BSF8. See below for details. Every control station you order will come with a control sticker of your choice.
