This thing fulfills multiple needs while taking up VERY little space and weighing practically nothing. Everything seems to work so far, and I don't have any complaints. I checked the compass against a GPS and it is accurate. The fire steel gives off sparkes, the wistle is loud, and the LED light is bright.
The thermo isn't great, but that is probably the least of your worries in a survival situation.
Although this item works well, I probably wouldn't use it in a primary capacity for anything except the compass. I would still carry my own fire steel, a jet scream whistle, and a headlamp. This does deserve room in my kit, however, because it is a very adequate back-up for all of those. Anytime you can establish redundancy for multiple items with something this small and retain functionality, you are on to something good!
Love it, ordering more now.
