Nice, but with some cons – 6-in-1 Outdoors Survival Mini Kit (Whistle + Compass + Magnifier + LED Flashlight + more) Reviews

posted by Channah on 07/03/2008 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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!
