About Silva Lensatic Compass

Silva Lensatic Compass
For any outdoor enthusiast that's serious about their craft, the Silva Lensatic Compass is certainly a must-have accessory. This excellent Lenastic compass features a classic design that's traditionally used by military forces. It's capable of superbly accurate bearings in land navigation and directing artillery coordinates. It has a heavy-duty, powder-coated aluminum housing for superior durability that can handle anything. You'll have an easier time analyzing the readings as it provides a convenient magnified sighting arm.

In addition, there are luminous points on the rotating bezel to make it ideal under low-light situations. The Silva Lensatic Compass keeps you on the right track so you'll never get lost.

    Questions about this item:

    Shopper  how do you use lensatic compass, what is the lens and how do you use it correctly..
    SunnySports S  To Take A Bearing:Unlock the cover half way so that the compass card forms a 90? angle.Raise the lens arm to a 45 degree angle.Stabilize the compass by placing thumb inside the thumb hook. Ensure the hook is all the way towards the bottom before doing so. Locate the target object. Adjust the sighting wire so that it lies in the center of the target object. Read fine degree marking on the compass card. Do this by moving the lens up and down until the degree mark reads without taking your eye off the target. Read the bearing in degrees or MILS, whichever is preferred. It will take a couple of tries untill you get it down pat, but these compasses are accurate!Have Fun Out There!Carl
