Simple, effective, super lightweight and powerfully necessary, the Vargo Titanium Emergency Whistle is a tremendous asset and needs to be a supplement in every outdoor enthusiast's pocket.

There comes a time when we all must realize that we are smaller than the sum of all things. Take, for example, the very unfortunate accident that could have ended dishearteningly worse to Aron Ralston and the basis for the movie, "127 Hours". I can't even imagine how brave this young man must have been. With that said, there are a number of mindful measures we must do to make the best of any situation and avoid dispiriting tragedy…

Whether it's in your clothes pocket, a stuff sack, long-corded around your neck, emergency bag, ditty bag, pack pocket, etc., a whistle, within reach, is an absolute necessity for everyone and anyone on the trail.

This emergency whistle is in my pocket at all times! I've never had to use it, but if I need to it is readily available, within reach, at all times. I do not leave home without it! I trust the titanium construction to last a lifetime and because of the pea-less design there are no moving parts to malfunction. This is just one of many safety devices that remains a MUST HAVE every time you hit the trail! Make it a Happy Trails adventure!

Quick note… I purchased two of these, one for myself, one for my girlfriend. The first one arrived with a hairline crack down the entire body of the whistle. The retailer it was purchased from was very apologetic and more than happy to replace it. Be sure yours does not have any defects to ensure proper operation.
