I was slightly disappointed when I received this that it wasn't made out of metal, for some reason I had assumed it was due to the appearance in the pictures, but there is no mention of this and some of the reviews do state this clearly so it was only my mistake. This in no way detracts from the quality of the compass itself, it is very well made with absolutely no air bubbles in the liquid itself. It has a nice little carabiner attached to it which is one reason I purchased this, it will be attached to my backpack for when I need it.
The compass measures 3.3cm x 5.5cm and is made from a clear plastic which seems to have a little dark tint to it. I have included a picture of the compass next to a standard 4 pack of AA batteries just to show the scale, obviously this does NOT come with batteries.
Overall I am very happy with this purchase and the quality of the item.
Half an hour later I finally popped out of the trees into somewhere familiar, but not after a few moments of serious uncertainty. It was a reminder that it's really easy to get lost when the conditions turn, and when you're fell and trail running you don't have a heavy pack of normally useless equipment to fall back on, because that's the whole point.
So, if you are prone to being in unusual places in unusual situations I'd heartily recommend this accurate, simple, tiny little compass stuffed in your shorts pocket so you can work out which way the flapjack / pub is, and to avoid an embarrassing big yellow helicopter moment.
Very compact for pocket or keys, very precise and NO bubbles at all, not even a single tiny one.
I don't know what kind of fluid they use, but the needle moves in it very swiftly.
Worth the money paid, Silva makes high quality outdoor products , it doesn't say where its made, but i also have other compasses and gear from Silva and all were made in Sweden so i guess so is this one.
All compasses over time, and the smaller the sooner they stop being precise, but i had many small silva compasses and even i carried them on my keys or next to other metal objects i only had to replace them after more than two years, if you use compasses only occasionally or rarely keep/store them away from metal objects and magnets (such as loudspeakers) to prolong their lifetime.
Do not bother with cheap, bubble filled, chinese made button compasses, get a Silva instead.
A compass is one of the most important gear for outdoor/emergency/survival, so the better the quality, the bigger chance you have to find the right way
If I have one criticism it's that it sometimes needs a little bit of wiggling and gentle tapping to get a totally accurate reading. Other models may be more accurate and have more features but I know they'll most likely be at home in my desk drawer the one time I need it.
In the photo I thought the base was olive green but it is clear plastic.
I love it, it's great but a cheeky family member liked it so much they've already half-inched it so now I'm going to order another one!
If I was using it with maps etc then I would probably think about buying a bigger one, but this was ideal for him to know which direction he was facing so he could use it in conjunction with a starmap to know what he was looking at in the night sky.
It does not have the rotating bezel like more expensive compasses but this is great just to work out where North is.
Highly recommended just to have in your pocket for emegencies.
