Kestrel Camp & Hike 3000 Weather Meter / Digital Hygrometer Red 0853 0830. Before the Kestrel 3000 came along the technology required to gather this information would require masses of equipment in particular a Sling. Replacing a Sling Psychrometer with a Kestrel is a huge step in time saving and accuracy. As with all Kestrel meters the 3000's sensitive and user-replaceable impeller technology provides accurate wind speed info. Additionally an external temperature sensor and waterproof casing allow you to gauge the temperature of water (it even floats) and snow as well as the open air. A hard slide-on case lanyard and battery are included.
Extremely sensitive units for accurate weather readings. Large, backlit display. Patented, user-replaceable impeller. External temperature sensor for fast, accurate readings. Operates on one CR2032 battery. Slim ergonomic design with a rugged case and neck lanyard. All are water resistant to 1 m, float, and include 1 yr warranty. Limited quantity #355107 & #355183.

This compact, hand-held instrument accurately and quickly determines wind speed, temperature, windchill, relative humidity, heat stress and dewpoint. Temperature, wind chill, heat stress and dewpoint can be measured from -20°F to 158°F; temp can also be displayed in Celsius. With a low start-up speed, it is possible to gauge wind speeds ranging from 0.7 to 89 mph. Monitor maximum, average and current wind speed in mph, kmh, ft/min, m/s knots and beaufort force. Track relative humidity from 5% to 95%. Hard plastic protective sheath and lanyard keep device safe and secure. Large, easy-to-read display with backlight for convenience, day or night. Unit is waterproof and floats--making it ideal for water sports. Operates on a single CR2032 coin cell battery (included).
