Nice thing – Survival Whistle with Compass Thermometer and Magnifier (OEM) Reviews

posted by ClientSberbanka on 11/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
+ Cheap.
+ Compact and lightweight so can be a EDC whistle.
+ Has built-in thermometer - both Celsius and Fahrenheit.
+ Has built-in magnifying lens.
Cons:
- Whistle is not enoughly loud.
- Built-in fluid compass is just a toy and nothing more!!! It shows everything such as weather on Mars but not the magnetic meridian.
- Built-in magnifying lens is a cheap plastic which is not scratch-proof so scratches would ruin it easily.
- Built-in magnifying lens gives awful barrel-like optical distortion.
Other:
* Mine is not "Columbia" branded.
* I'd like to re-gauss its compass-like toy to make it a compass but I don't know is it possible or it is not.
Bottomline:
Think well - do you need so silent whistle with built-in useless compass-like toy...
