The compass comes with a slope card and a 2 scale distance lanyard. The slope card is great both for detecting avalanche risk and for determining how challenging your journey will be. By knowing the slope you can also judge any extra distance that you need to go due to the slope. The distance lanyard has two scales on it; 1:25, and 1:50, which facilitates to measure the distance of your hike. Since its soft and bendable it’s easy to place it directly on to your route on the map.

Expedition Global features DryFlex™ grip for easy handling, a clinometer for measuring slope angle and comes with a built-in adjuster for magnetic declination. It also features map-measuring in mm, inches, scales of 1:25k, 1:40k 1:50k and GPS scales. The baseplate has a curved-up at the back-end for perfect fit in the hand, magnifying lens and rubber friction feet for precision map work. The distinct arrow and scales/markings in a clear contemporary font combined with lots of transparency in the baseplate makes navigating easier – when activated in light the luminous markings and graduation ring enable night time navigation. The red/black northsouth lines in the capsule bottom ensures easy and safe settling. The needle is made from finest Swedish steel with high quality magnetic features.
