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

Pros:
- Multi-functional - Quite robust - Nice compass - The light blinds my eyes - Whistle sounds very bright - Good magnifying glass
Cons:
- The hygrometer doesn't seem to work very well. Could me a production fault though. - The spirit level meter wasn't aligned right. Can be fixed with some hot melt glue if you really need it. - The firesteel is very small, and it takes some practice. - The flashlight-switch feels a bit fragile
Other:
You shouldn't open the battery compartment too many times, or you will destroy the plastic around the screws.
Bottomline:
It's good quality for the price. But it's cheap, so don't expect an army quality tool.
