The Silva® Polaris® Base Plate compass is an instrument for the advanced orienteer, as well as novices to map-and-compass work. The slim profile, durability, and excellent accuracy make this compass our choice to include in survival kits.
- Clear base plate with inch, millimeter and 1:24,000 scales, makes it easy to read a map, set bearings, and plan a trip
- Features 2° graduation lines with large numerals at every 20° for easy reading of bearings
- Red and black orientation lines facilitate establishing your position on, or setting your course from, a map; scales help determine distances
- Large sighting arrow helps you set your course across the land; large bezel and ergonomic design make it easy to hold and use
- Fixed declination scale accommodates quick adjustments of map bearings to field headings
- Base plate lanyard hole lets you keep the compass handy around your neck (lanyard not included)
- Friction-free sapphire bearing allows the tungsten steel needle to swing freely; permanently clear fluid keeps it steady
