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

    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, ...

    Cons:
    Not as loud as another bonafide survival whistle I own, and requires more breath/effort... though it's still loud enough. Compa...
