Compasses


Find True North

In China, the compass is considered one of the four great inventions. In navigation, the directions on maps are usually expressed with reference to geographical or true north. It is the compass that allows us to use such maps and to find our way. Yes, our modern world has seen the advent of GPS technology, but there is still a place for the tried-and-true compass. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass. This marked the begin of Silva compasses, and it set the global standard for how navigation works today. At Get Lost, we carry a wide selection of Silva compasses for running, orienteering, and backcountry exploring. With Silva compasses, you can go anywhere you want, at any time of the day, and in any conditions.
