      Comments about Silva Trekker Type 20 Compass:

      Silva (Brunton) compasses are great. Brunton products are probably the best value out there. I have used their binos and spotting scopes for years and haven't bought any other brand since my first pair of binos.

          Bought this for a FunSAR class. It was recommend by the instructor. There was about 20 of us that bought these and I think only one of the 20 worked great. The one was off about 3 degrees.

            I learned to use the compass in the Marines. It is a must have piece of equipment for the outdoors man.It is lightweight, easy to use and the mirror can be used to signal when help is needed.

                Great compass. I use it to teach map reading and hiking to Boy Scouts. Served me well at my Wood Badge course. (I used to be a Beaver!)

                  How does this model compare to the older Silva Ranger Model Compass, Type 15 TD?

                    A:

                    The Ranger is a little bigger and has adjustable declination for use with non desalinated maps. The Trekker has a declination scale, however it can not be adjusted so you will need to eyeball it. Additionally the Ranger comes in 360 model and quadrant model. The trekker is a 360 only.
