We were founded in Sweden 1933 and ever since, we have developed compasses and headlamps to help people enjoy the outdoors even more.

Silva was founded in Sweden in 1933 when the Kjellström brothers together with Gunnar Tillander invented the first ever liquid filled compass. A few years later, in 1935, the business was expanded with the first headlamp; the Zeiler. Since then, Silva has continued to develop products for outdoor use. Compasses, headlamps, running vests and clever accessories that make outdoor life in the mountains, forests and at sea more safe – and more fun. Current innovations from Silva are focused on sustainability and performance for world class athletes, everyday adventurers and professional workers.
