  • Nice thing

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    + Cheap.

    + Compact and lightweight so can be a EDC whistle.

    + Has built-in thermometer - both Celsius and Fahrenheit.

    + Has built-in magnifying lens.

    Cons:

    - Whistle is not enoughly loud.

    - Built-in fluid compass is just a toy and nothing more!!! It shows everything such as weather on Mars but not the magnetic meridian.

    - Built-in magnifying lens is a cheap plastic which is not scratch-proof so scratches would ruin it easily.

    - Built-in magnifying lens gives awful barrel-like optical distortion.

    OtherThoughts:

    * Mine is not "Columbia" branded.

    * I'd like to re-gauss its compass-like toy to make it a compass but I don't know is it possible or it is not.

    Bottomline:

    Think well - do you need so silent whistle with built-in useless compass-like toy...
