Good EDC whistle – Survival Whistle with Compass Thermometer and Magnifier (OEM) Reviews

posted by mrninja on 09/23/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
-Fluid damped compass
-Pea less whistle
-Thermometer
-Magnifying lens
Cons:
-Whistle isn't very loud
-Magnifying lens too small, useless item?
-Replace the magnifying lens with a mirror?
-Has a very plasticity feel, so far hasn't broke yet.
-No luminous compass?
-The 2 I got didn't have the Columbia logo?
Other:
Most sporting stores and online carry this item. It combines 4 items into one. It isn't bad, it does the job. Though the whistle is kinda fat it would be nice if it was slimmer?
Wish DX would carry the 6 in one, with the additional led and signal mirror. And it had a luminous compass. (Drool)...Luminous Compass ;P
Bottomline:
This is a good buy, I suggest everyone should have a whistle on their keychain. Stores are selling this item at around $5, DX $2 shipped. Guess it says it all!
