The Silva brand was born in 1933, shortly after modern orienteering became a competitive sport. Three orienteering champions wanted to create a more precise and easier to use compass, and that is how the liquid-filled compass was invented. Another innovation that Silva is famous for is the first headlamp that was brought to the market in 1935. Nowadays, Silva has expanded it’s product line and offers a variety of compass models for beginner campers and real orienteering professionals alike. Thanks to the company’s commitment to continuous innovation and high quality, it remains a preferred choice for outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
