    • Works well. But big 30% price rise.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I purchased this item about 6months ago in the Bolton store. It works fine and nicely and settles quick quickly at the time I paid £9.99. At the weekend I came to buy another for a friend and now the price has risen by £3 to £12.99. I know 12.99 isnt a huge amount but thats a whopping 30% price rise.
      I would recommend it at 9.99 but not at 12.99 so I didnt buy another.
      Response of the brand
      Hi Paul,

      Firstly I am glad that you were happy with the product in use.

      Regarding our price policy we match competitors on equivalent products for branded products including major online competitors.  Price matching means we follow competitors down but also upwards.  We do this so you can be confident buying branded products at Decathlon that they are as cheap as you will find them.

      Today I do not find a Silva compass with magnifying glass for less that £15 and at £12.99 I can find the basic Silva model without magnifying glass and a non-branded compass with magnifying glass at the £13 mark.  

      At Decathlon we also have our exclusive products at exceptional value / price.  For £9.99 you have at Decathlon the Quechua compass with magnifying glass.

      That said we take on board your feedback regarding the change in price and have amended our policy to restrict big fluctuations in price when following our competitors on branded products and as such I've decreased the price of the Silva compass to £11.99.

      Kind regards,

      OK for a basic compass, would have liked a 1:25000 and 1:50000 and just a basic millimeter measuring scale. Not really sure why its bright green although clear, perhaps for better location if its dropped or put on the ground?
