The expert SILVA compass! The Expedition 5-6400/360 is for users needing high performance when it comes to accuracy, precision and durability. 

If you are in need of a compass with high-end features, the Expedition 5-6400/360 should be your choice.

The compass comes with a slope card and a distance lanyard. The slope card is great both for detecting avalanche risk and for determining how challenging your journey will be. By knowing the slope you can also judge any extra distance that you need to go due to the slope. The distance lanyard has two scales on it; 1:25, and 1:50, which facilitates to measure the distance of your hike. Since it’s soft and bendable it’s easy to place it directly on to your route on the map.

Expedition 5-6400/360 features DryFlex™ grip for easy handling, a clinometer for measuring slope angle and comes with a built-in adjuster for magnetic declination. It also features map-measuring in mm, inches, scales of 1:25k, 1:40k 1:50k, and GPS scales. The baseplate has a curved-up at the back-end for perfect fit in the hand, a magnifying lens and rubber friction feet for precision map work. The distinct arrow and scales/markings in a clear contemporary font combined with lots of transparency in the baseplate makes navigating easier – when activated in light the luminous markings and graduation ring enable night time navigation. The red/black north/south lines in the capsule bottom ensure easy and safe settling. The needle is made from finest Swedish steel with high quality magnetic features.

The bezel is graduated in both Mils and degrees for the Military and Civilian user.

We’ve been using an advanced sample of this compass for a few months now and it is a significantly better compass than the Expedition 4 it replaces.  We are big fans of the larger bezel and the more robust base plate.  We wouldn’t use any other compass now.

Compatible with our Clipeum Protective System Compass Case.

NB. This is a Northern Hemisphere compass.
