This is not just a survival whistle. Containing 5 tools in one easy to carry item, this whistle is perfect for any emergency.
- Waterproof Container
Bought a couple over the years and feel it’s a pretty decent device. I’m not part of Myth Busters or the Consumer Product Division and subject them to exhaustive testing so my opinion is subjective unless otherwise stated. Whistle is loud as most of the other survival whistles out there, again no decibel measurements. Mine had peas in them and everyone says remove them so they don’t freeze up, so I did. If your in conditions where the Pea would free, your probably in overhead, if it does put it in your armpit. Whether a whistle with or without a pea attracts more attention is subjective at best. Match store is watertight. I always remove the O-ring and wipe it down with Armor-all to keep it flexible. Still I wax dip matches. If you use it for a pill container and the medication is critical I’d put it in a small zip pill bag too. The Mirror under the cap might not be big enough to attract attention, I’d like to test it outside and see, but the sides of the cap are going to act like a lens shield. Mine is a reflective foil sticker, not a real mirror. The Compass is adequate. The Fire Steel insert is small, I’ve produced a sparks big enough to start dry tinder, but is not a substitute for a Swiss Steel or Magnesium Block type that will rain spark. All-in-All and okay device.
