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

posted by cherrypixie on 04/15/2009 Certified Owner

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, if held at the wrong angle and not perfectly level, will not work properly.
But its cheap. So as long ass you are not using this for expert hiking, but more a general use it is fine.
Cons:
...
Other:
Better off buying a proper whistle and compass.
Bottomline:
Somewhat usefull, but can live without
