Brunton ADC Summit

rated 1 of 5 stars It might be a nice piece of kit if the battery door didn't have 2 of the 3 tabs that hold it down broken off. I have to put thumb pressure on the taped on door to get a display. I bought it TODAY and have sent an email to Brunton. I bought this today at Gander Mountain half way across the state. When I got home I discovered that the installed battery was depleted, and I installed the second battery that was in the box. I immediately noticed I had to hold pressure on the battery door to get the display… Full review

Kestrel 2000

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I bought my first one in 2010 for use in my kayaking business in SW Florida. The Kestrel worked fine for measuring temperature, but stopped working when left in a kayak cockpit with an inch of water for about 2 minutes. I returned it to the company as it was still under warranty and got excellent service as they shipped me another one right away. This one stopped working as well when in contact with water for no more than a minute. I want to believe the company has a great product but have found… Full review

Brunton ADC Pro

rated 2 of 5 stars It works fine for a few hours, but the wind speed stops working suddenly. I  live in Chile, and don't now how to change it, or get to fix it, other functions are ok. Full review

Brunton ADC Summit

Overpriced piece of garbage. I really wanted and asked for an altimeter and this is what the dealer brought in. I was told it was this or a wrist-watch style. After a matter of a couple of weeks I took it back and asked for a refund. The altimiter function was completely unreliable and I live only 400 meters from the ocean. I even volunteered to take a re-stocking discount but was refused flat! Naturally I would never shop nor recommend that store to anyone. Full review

Brunton ADC Summit

rated 4 of 5 stars Not an absolute necessity... but gives reliable information and has always functioned fine for me. The weather forecaster is a cool feature, probably never would have bought it for myself but it was a cool gift... worth the money if you have it but definitely not a high priority as far as gear goes.

Brunton ADC Summit

rated 1 of 5 stars I received my brand new ADC Summit and was really looking forward to using it over the weekend snowshoeing... When we arrived in the mountains the wind was blowing quite nicely, so I thought it would be the perfect chance to check out my new ADC Summit... I held it up in the wind and the propellers would not spin, so I tried blowing on it...I would have to really blow hard to get the propeller to spin freely. The temperature (according to the ADC) was between 15 and 18 deg(F). It appeared to me… Full review

Brunton ADC Sherpa

rated 2 of 5 stars Had to return the first one, altimeter woud not stay in calibration. I cafefully read the instructions also. Same problem with the second one, and I returned it also. A few other people even tried setting it in case I was fat-fingering it. The other functions worked fine. Full review

Brunton ADC Sherpa

rated 4 of 5 stars For the last two years I've owned a Brunton Sherpa. I use it mostly for the barometric pressure and altitude functions, and it has been reliable. The Sherpa also offers wind speed/velocity and temperature, for the latter the instrument must be held away from the body for a minute or so. It is slightly smaller and not as bulky as other handheld electronic altimeters on the market, and is fairly unnoticeable when carried around the neck on its attached lanyard. The Sherpa is marketed by Silva of Sweden… Full review
