IN 1933, A MERE 14 YEARS AFTER MODERN ORIENTEERING became a competitive sport, three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering champions invented the liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and easier to use than other compasses at the time. The SILVA brand was born.
SILVA also set the scene for innovation in diverse outdoor sports areas by launching their first headlamp two years later. Although the company has changed since then, Silva compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. As a company, Silva are navigators that circle the globe, solving cross-country complexities. As individuals, they range from multi-adventurers to everyday exercisers. They test all new products via ambassadors and compare the findings with other sources, such as the valuable input received from users around the world. All this vast experience and knowledge are injected into the design and harsh testing of their renowned world-class products.
