The Nexus Elite, Models 15 and 25, are top-of-the-line mirror-sight compasses familiar to many in the USA who used to own the old Silva Ranger. That's because, in the U.S. at least, the Nexus Elite is the only top-rank mirror-sight compass actually made by Silva of Sweden, the original manufacturer of the Silva 'Ranger'.

After trying out several mirror sight compasses, I've found the Nexus Elite to be the best made and designed of all of them. The Nexus compass bezel on my compass rotates without slop, the sight is accurately positioned and aligned with the bearing line, the hinges are tight, and only the Nexus has an innovative clear plastic capsule design allows one to read reverse bearings in the mirror.


Since Silva of Sweden severed its relationship with Brunton, the Nexus compasses are no longer available. I agree that the Nexus 25TDCLE was the finest "Silva Ranger" type compass ever made by anyone.
