From orienteering to kayaking, mountain climbing to adventure racing, compasses are an essential feature for any multisport activity requiring precise navigation.
Learning how to use a compass effectively can raise the bar on your adventure experiences; learning how to use a compass properly can save your life. Wildfire Sports has compasses for the beginner bushwalker to the expert orienteer; for the casual kayaker to the multi-terrain bike adventurer, and Wildfire Sports only sells two of the best compass brands on the market – Silva and Moscow Compass.
Beginner bushwalkers may like to try the Silva Field baseplate compass. For people who need a bit more in their compass, such as a magnifying lens or use-anywhere declination scale, keep an eye out for the Silva Ranger baseplate compass. Expert orienteers may deliberate over the Silva 6 Jet Spectra thumb compass, or for a fast-set, less expensive alternative, the Moscompass Model 3 thumb compass. While kayakers and multi-terrain bike orienteers go for the Silva 70 UN mounted compass or Silva 90L map guide bike compass; kids will love Silva’s carabiner compasses, which are lightweight, inexpensive and easily attached to belt or bag.
All compasses sold by Wildfire Sports are southern hemisphere optimised, however northern hemisphere optimised Silva and Moscow compasses are available on request. Wildfire Sports also supplies compasses designed for military use – just contact us if you would like to put in an order or for more details.
Thumb compasses, baseplate compasses, fast azimuth reading, kid’s compasses, wrist and bike compasses - we’ve got compasses covered.
