  • whistle works, build could be better

    posted by vldxacc on 03:13:21 G12T 01/12/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The whistle works fine. The thermometer is within a degree of my other thermometers. The keychain is convenient.

    Cons: There is a small bubble in the compass that makes it a little hard to get at proper direction reading, but it's not too bad. The build quality of the whole thing feels okay but it was not as solid as I was expecting.

    Other: It's a good price. Everyone should have a whistle and compass when they go outdoors.

  • A Survival whistle that does what it claims !

    posted by m80116 on 16:33:14 G6T 03/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Inexpensive and quite understated it does it claims for. It has a handy chain and ring to hang it on your zip buckle. It is also equipped with a swing out magnifier. Thermometer is accurate.

    Cons: Construction isn't the very best, the integrated magnifying glass tends to flip out by itself if you hang it upside down (not that you'd do it often since it'll probably be hung and remain there). The main complaint regards the whistle which is certainly loud enough and of a very high frequency but also needs a very good stream of air flowing from your lungs before it produces any audible sound. Being a survival whistle means that you'd probably need to whiz it where you could not be on your best physical condition (i.e. a bit breathless) say in a gully with some broken bone. How much you don't want that to happen to see if you'll live up to the expectations ?

    Other: Nice piece. I'd probably buy a good stock of these for a group or even to give to every family member.

    posted by ClientSberbanka on 09:11:44 G11T 17/11/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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: Think well - do you need so silent whistle with built-in useless compass-like toy...

  • Good EDC whistle

    posted by mrninja on 22:22:42 G9T 23/09/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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: 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!

  • Alright

    posted by cherrypixie on 08:34:24 G4T 15/04/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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: Somewhat usefull, but can live without

  • Good to have on trips

    posted by scope on 22:29:31 G1T 13/01/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Compass works ok, whistle works ok, magnifier works ok (although I have not tried starting fires with it), thermometer works ok

    Cons: Thermometer no longer sticks to the side in the whistle. It just rattles around in there although it still works

    Other: Good to have on camping trips. Its small size and multiple features means it will take up very little space

  • Great little gadget

    posted by Carnath on 04:34:45 G8T 20/08/2007 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Many useful functions for such a small thing!

    Cons: As mentioned before, the magnifying glass isnt all that useful since it's too small to start a fire with.

    Other: Great little gadget that's very useful, and at that price you can't go wrong! Everyone should have one when out in the woods!!

  • A cute "bring-along" for the outdoors

    posted by EM745 on 03:11:56 G7T 31/07/2007

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Decent build quality. The thermometer on mine is surprisingly accurate. Compass is decent enough, when it's freely turning.

    Cons: Not as loud as another bonafide survival whistle I own, and requires more breath/effort... though it's still loud enough. Compass sometimes sticks, and you have to give it a few taps to get it going again. Plastic magnifying "glass" is all but useless to me--it's way too small to start fires (with sunlight). Overall, a little thicker than it should be, IMO.

    Other: A nice add-on to any zipper.

  • Nice, but a lil'l bigger than I expected

    posted by Dimmy on 01:20:53 G7T 22/07/2007

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Nice multi purpose whistle. Works well.

    Cons: Rattles quite a bit, and I think it is a bit too thick. Would be a bit bulky hanging from a backpack zipper and is almost too big for a keychain.

    Other: Buy it, blow it, bring it with you everywhere (so you don't get lost).
