    If you have to rely on a compass, this is the one

    Before GPS, I relied on my Silva Ranger v1 for navigation in the woods of Northern Ontario, where "maps" were sometimes little more than fire service drafts, and trails were little more than moose trails if they were that big. The improvements in the Silva Ranger v2 are well worth upgrading. The pre-marked strap is a nice touch, and so is the improved layout, especially for USGS quads (v1 only supported 1:25K and 1:50K - Type 15 - US version Type 615 supports US quads, but the scale is shoved in a corner). The larger mirror helps make it easier to sight with (especially for those of us who do not see as well as we used to). And the magnifier helps enlarge hard-to-read features. The more rounded corners make it easier to get the new version in and out of pockets and bags. Putting the declination tool in breakaway protects it from getting lost (we all carried a jeweler's screwdriver because the v1 tool was one of the first things to go missing, especially when you had to put a new cord on the compass in the field). The baseplate is the same size as the original version and the same thickness, so it will fit in the original Ranger pouches (if you still have one). The only negative is the NSEW is not painted white like the original model. Not a huge issue for some, but it is a departure for Silva. While I no longer live or die by my compass, I will not go into the woods without my Ranger - in this case, my Ranger 2.0.
