Pros: The whistle works fine. The thermometer is within a degree of my other thermometers. The keychain is convenient. Cons: There is a small bubble in the compass that makes it a little hard to get at proper direction reading, but it's not too bad. The build quality of the whole thing feels okay but it was not as solid as I was expecting. Othe... Read more
Pros: Inexpensive and quite understated it does it claims for. It has a handy chain and ring to hang it on your zip buckle. It is also equipped with a swing out magnifier. Thermometer is accurate. Cons: Construction isn't the very best, the integrated magnifying glass tends to flip out by itself if you hang it upside down (not that you'd do it... Read more

Pros: Everything on this item works, just not very well. The whistle isnt that loud and takes a considerable effort to get going. The thermometer is difficult to read and not that accurate. The magnifying glass is plastic and pretty much useless. The compass, if held at the wrong angle and not perfectly level, will not work properly. But its ch... Read more
Pros: Compass works ok, whistle works ok, magnifier works ok (although I have not tried starting fires with it), thermometer works ok Cons: Thermometer no longer sticks to the side in the whistle. It just rattles around in there although it still works OtherThoughts: Bottomline: Good to have on camping trips. Its small size and multiple feature... Read more
Pros: Many useful functions for such a small thing! Cons: As mentioned before, the magnifying glass isnt all that useful since it's too small to start a fire with. OtherThoughts: Bottomline: Great little gadget that's very useful, and at that price you can't go wrong! Everyone should have one when out in the woods!! Involvement:General (knows h... Read more
Pros: Decent build quality. The thermometer on mine is surprisingly accurate. Compass is decent enough, when it's freely turning. Cons: Not as loud as another bonafide survival whistle I own, and requires more breath/effort... though it's still loud enough. Compass sometimes sticks, and you have to give it a few taps to get it going again. Plas... Read more
Pros: Nice multi purpose whistle. Works well. Cons: Rattles quite a bit, and I think it is a bit too thick. Would be a bit bulky hanging from a backpack zipper and is almost too big for a keychain. OtherThoughts: Overall nice compass. There is no ball in this whistle so it sounds a bit different than a "normal" whistle. Bottomline: Bu... Read more
