These Rescue Howler whistles are the same as the yellow Micro whistles except for the package label. They even have the same "Fox 40 Micro" imprint on them. Although they used to be different - compare pictures of the two whistles where the lanyard is threaded through to attach - they're the yellow Micro whistles, now.
And yes, they are EXTREMELY LOUD when blown properly. If given a half-hearted puff, the whistle produces a weak sound such as J. B. Turner complained about.
Personally, I think every child should be issued a whistle when on a hike or camping. These whistles appeared to be ideal. It is lightweight, and very shrill/loud when I blow it. What's not to like? The answer for me is the energy required to blow it. My small eight year old daughter seems to have a bit of a problem blowing it and getting the desired sound. It is much easier for her to produce the sound with the the fox40, or even a classic referee's whistle. It could also envision a problem if a badly injured adult is attempting to use it for signaling. For that reason I'm sticking with the fox 40 for my kids.

The idea behind this product is a good one. But i found that you need to put quit a bit of brerath behind it to get the level descibed in discription. If you take into account that some one injured may not have the ability to put all that much air into blowing the whistle it's not a good thing. In an emergency situation when you realy need it you are out of luck. Just my opinion, never the less i believe a good emergency signaling whistle should take into account that possibility.
