We were founded in Sweden 1933 and ever since, we have developed compasses and headlamps to help people going places.

In 1933, the three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering brothers Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and set the global standard for how navigation devices work. The SILVA brand was born.

We also set the scene for innovation in diverse outdoor sports areas when we launched our first SILVA headlamp, Zeiler, already in 1935. Although our company has changed since then, SILVA compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. As farmland, fields and forests pass underfoot, our equipment guide their steps.

As a company, we have developed outstanding outdoor equipment since 1933. As individuals, we range from multi-adventurers to everyday exercisers. We test all new products via our ambassadors and compare the findings with other sources, such as the valuable input we receive from clients around the world. All this vast experience and knowledge are injected into the design and harsh testing of our renowned world-class products.

Scandinavia’s varying seasons, especially our rainy autumns and our snowy and dark winters, expose outdoor gear to the ultimate test – and they challenge us as well. We have risen to these challenges time after time. In recent years, our innovative and attractively designed headlamps have received several awards. However grateful for this recognition of our hard work, we continue to constantly reinvent ourselves, passionately searching for the ultimate designs and functions of our products.

Presently, our main business areas are Sport, Outdoor and Professional. Within each of these areas you will find headlamps, compasses, dry bags, waterproof backpacks, hydration belts, running vests, pedometers, binoculars, professional instruments and other products. Every single one of them charged with the unstoppable passion of the SILVA-team.
