Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea; bad execution. Sure, it's fun to think that so many useful tools can be packed into one small unit... but this thing is just a chintzy toy for junior's backyard adventures. The light got snagged on my pack and broke almost immediately, and the thermometer didn't seem to be very accurate. The magnifying glass and mirror appear to be of questionable utility. So, you're left with a serviceable emergency compass and whistle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well We recently used this after taking a wrong turn in Madrid. It was evening, the map was hard to read and we were disoriented. The compass helped orient the map correctly, the light and the magnifying glass both helped us read the map. Saved us a long walk in the wrong direction! Good for urban traveler.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad the button has a chance to pop out but overall a nice product that has a lot of uses

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still works, but may not be the best While the unit has lots of features, the button for the light falls off easily. Since it was one of the reasons to buy it, would make me NOT recommend it again. The whistle is loud and the other aspects work fine. The three batteries, may not be cost prohibitive to replace. I'll look into that at

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged and convenient Have had this clipped on my backpack for about a year and use it all the time. Thankfully have not needed it for an emergency. Very loud whistle, functional compass. Convenient LED light. Solid product that replaces several separate tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this whistle I wanted a whistle I could use hiking to get my dog to come back when he takes off, this whistle is the best. Not only does it have the sound he will listen to but it has all the other features I love too, compass, light, temperature, only one problem I keep loosing them so this is my second order and I am ordering 4 of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck. Makes an excellent stocking stuffer for those friends and relatives that you care about. About a month ago I gave one to my sister and she told me the compass has already saved her from being totally lost on two seperate occasions. She also credits the loud whistle and quick thinking for saving her life. As far as I am concerned, it's worth its weight in gold!

Questions & Answers

Wouldn't the batteries in unit effect accuracy of compass?

Asked by: treesquid
The manufacturer says the compass has been tested with the battery and the battery does not affect the accuracy of the compass.
