Small, lightweight, very simple and effective. As an emergency compass or simply as a mini navigation aid the Metro does a good job.
The cool, ultra-compact design of SILVA Metro marries mobility with ease-of-use for quick orientation in the fast-moving urban environment.
The simple North pointer is your indispensable assistant while navigating with map or GPS. Metro features a durable rubber housing and a carabiner for attaching to a rucksack or clothing. The single model comes in four chic colours — black, turquoise, pink, and green.
Silva's Metro Compass is designed for the urban environment. Perfect for attaching to your bag or clothes this little compass can guide you around the city or can help you orientate yourself if you're out in the hills. With the four main compass directions displayed in the rubber housing you get a good sense of direction for navigating the streets.
This should never take the place of a compass with bearings, scale lines and other useful features that come into their own when you need to navigate the hills and mountains but it is so small and handy you will definitely find yourself using it more that you first think!
