I bought it to go in my little boys first survival kit, but if he doesn't stop blowing the damn thing he might not survive at all!
£2 and a half quid gives you some chance of finding your kids if they wander off in the woods (if that's what you want).
Seller did just fine. Will probably use them again.
At 6.2cm x 1.1cm it is slight bigger than expected but I think this size make it especially easy to blow.
The whistle appears robust with a good strong key chain. Unlike the Trespass whistles, there is no storage compartment for matches etc. It is just a no frills whistle with no moving parts to go wrong.
Of course, being made of aluminium, this whistle will not float but decent plastic whistles seem hard to find - unless anyone knows different?
It is worth carrying a few of these in the car, attached to jackets etc. as an emergency can arise anywhere. I also carry a signal mirror which can signal an emergency situation over a greater distance than a whistle - assuming the sun is out of course!
Once you have bought your whistle, just make sure you know how to use it. Six blasts on a whistle repeated every minute is the internationally recognised distress call, and 3 blasts repeated every minute is the recognised reply. Keep blowing until you are rescued.
Also remember that blowing a whistle is much easier and louder than screaming or shouting!
It is well made, lightweight and with a very effective sound when blown. The attached split ring makes it easily attachable to whatever bit of kit you feel happiest with: mine goes on the key clip inside my rucksack lid.
So, a great product at a good price, and delivery was very prompt too.
But I'll leave you with a possibly apocryphal warning about the guy who had his whistle hanging from a loop outside his clothing, in winter, and got it frozen to his lips when he used it... Like I say, probably a rural myth.
I've tried this in a large local park and you shouldn't have a problem being heard from over a mile in rural/wilderness areas.
I've gotten one of these for my 3 year old daughter for when we go to crowded places, it's easier to hear a whistle than her shouting if we get separated. We've never needed it but she enjoyed the practice and I'm happy with the security.

Good quality whistle, would be handy in an emergency situation. Sure it would be loud enough to be heard from a fair distance.Published 1 month ago by Robert Bierman

Does make a loud noise so should it be required it would serve its purpose. I just felt that the price should be slightly lower so deducted one star but that is for the price and... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mehdi_Hassan
