So my wife and family have always thought my preparedness efforts were a lil bit kooky, and when this showed up in the mail the week before we celebrated the 4th of July at the lake they were giving me a hard time about buying a whistle to keep in my EDC bag aka murse.... well we get to the lake and prepare to head out in a friends boat to watch fireworks, 4 adults and 6 kids. The lake is big and choppy and it is known for the HUGE boats on it due to the size of the lake. We get almost to the other side to watch fireworks and my buddy says he's low on gas but should have enough to make it back no problem, we get to the cove watch the firework display and start to head back. We get about half the way back in total darkness with 30-40 foot yachts and speedboats going 50 mph past us and then it happens.... we run completely out of gas! well everyone starts freaking out, we are in a small boat getting tossed around by all the wake and chop of everyone else's boat so everyone starts yelling and screaming to get someone's attention to no avail, I suddenly remember I stuck this whistle in my pocket before we took off and grab it and start blowing, it only took 2-3 blasts before a boat pulled up to help, one of the guys said "whoever thought to bring a whistle did a good job cause that's the only reason we heard you and turned around" well they towed us to the gas station and all was good but had it not been for this whistle it could have turned out much different, bottom line I'm glad I had it and so were all the skeptics of being prepared!
However, I don't really think it works for backpacking. It's size is too large for lanyard-carry, if you already are carrying a compass/neck knife/etc. The biggest issue I have, though, is that it takes a lot of air to get this thing going. If you're injured in any capacity that makes breathing difficult, a whistle like this becomes pretty useless.
The advertising says that this produces 120 dB of sound. When robustly blown, it is at least that loud, probably more---which I can say with confidence, having worked in situations where loud sounds had to be measured and evaluated. It is ear-splitting and just the right frequency to shriek and penetrate. The advantage of this whistle is that in most situations, it would be as effective as Mace, wasp spray, or other substances people typically carry for self-defense---even more so, because it would drive off all but the most determined thug without having to risk converting him into a homicidal maniac by a poorly aimed Mace blast. And, yes, a gun is more definitive in its action, but a terminal outcome, while perhaps justified, might have its own distressing consequences.
This whistle is also a wonderful item to have in certain situations where attracting attention for reasons other than personal safety might be urgently needed. Breaking a leg in a rear parking lot where no one is around, for example, might be a real problem unless you could blow that whistle and have a crowd around you in seconds. Or, hiking with the family and getting lost would have perhaps a happier and more timely ending if whoever was lost could blow that whistle.
Get one, or get several for family members, but don't test it without going to an unpopulated area, unless, of course, you are prepared to pretend that you also are surprised and alarmed at the impossibly loud and discordant sound when people come rushing out to see what happened.
My ears rang for 3 days. When they say it's the loudest whistle on the market I don't doubt it.
Great price just under $7. It looks like it's a cheap piece of plastic. It may be plastic but it's awesome if your desperate for someone to hear you out of normal yelling range. I haven't tried this in the water yet but I have no doubts this works as advertised. I'm going to order me another one that I can take with me on our boat and I'm going to wear it around my neck. The one I use all the time is on my keychain. It's big and it may not be pretty but if you want the loudest look no farther!
Appears well-made and I don't see why it won't last me forever.
