  • Nice, but with some cons

    posted by Channah on 07/03/2008

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - A real working compass

    - a thermometer, but it's in celcius only and not that exact.

    - a mirror that you can sign with

    - a magnifier

    - a very bright LED light

    - a whistle ofcourse

    - a small space under the magnifier that ables you to keep pills/information etc

    - it all hangs on a lanyard

    Cons:

    - The lanyard is NOT that strong, it might break when you use it outdoors.

    - The whistle is not that loud. If you plan to use it to call for help, I advise you to look further on this site.

    - The plastic feels a little brittle and I'm afraid that it won't last that long during intensive use

    - It's quite large

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought two. One for me and one for my boyfriend. This was a great way to 'test' if the compasses point the right way and they do! I plan to take them during hiking trips and so on.

    Bottomline:

    If you don't mind using a larger than avarage whistle that's hanging on a flimsy cord, but has everything else working fine; buy it!
