Brand - Silva
Three entrepreneurial brothers. One great invention. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and our story began. Shortly thereafter, modern orienteering became a competitive sport. Another innovation that Silva is famous for is the first headlamp that was brought to the market in 1935. Silva has expanded it’s product line and offers a variety of compass models for beginner campers and real orienteering professionals alike. Thanks to the company’s commitment to continuous innovation and high quality, it remains a preferred choice for outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
