    Comments about Silva Ranger 515 Compass:

    Reliable accuracy because of split mirror sighting and declination lock. Used it near continental divide and caught errors in trail markings on map before it caused serious problems. Clinometer does not give much in the way of accuracy--just rough estimate. Have not used compass below freezing, and am not wild about all-plastic construction from a durability point of view, but think it is the best for the money for serious backpackers.

      Just what I need for orienteering in the backcountry. Used once in whiteout on Mt Rainier to get to Camp Muir ... no problems.

            I'm surprised no one has reviewed this. I've had mine for 20+ years and it's still going strong. Very accurate, durable, and whatever adjective you want to attach to a compass. The only thing that went wrong with mine is the bubble that occurred in the liquid after the temp dropped to somewhere below -25F. It still functions correctly as far as I can tell... haven't got lost!

            • Q:

              Just so I am straight,if your intended use for this compass is civilian/not miltary, your best choice would be the 360 degree option - correct?

              Please advise.

              Thanks.

                A:

                You are correct a 360 version is more adaptable to civilian maps like the USGS maps.

                A:

                Quadrants are 0-90 E 0-90S 0-90W 0-90 N. While 360 is goes from 0-360 with E being 90 degrees S being 180 W 270 N 360. You would use a quadrant in a military grid UTM map.
