The thermometer is interesting to have, but I don;t know what use it really serves if you're already outside, and if the whistle is carried near your body, the temperature reading is probably not accurately reading air temp. anyway.
The flip out magnifying glass and signal mirror are nice ideas, but both are very small. I don't know if the magnifying glass would focus enough light to be useful as a fire starter, and the mirror may not reflect enough light to be noticeable from a long way off.
The compass is practical, but, like other tiny compasses, you might need to tap it a bit before it settles and points accurately.
The whistle seems to work well. Coghlan's doesn't provide any information on how many decibels loud it is, but it seems loud to me.
I would not use the LED light as a primary source of light while out hiking or camping, but if needed, it is bright enough to light the ground in front of you as you walk or to find things in a pack or get situated in a tent at night. The light stays on only while you hold the button down, so it won't accidentally get bumped on an waste battery power for hours or days. But also means it's hard to have two hands free while using the light. I can't comment on battery life, because I don't use to the light a lot and I'm still in the first battery.
In terms of overall quality, it's not terrible, and it's not great. If you accidentally drop it, it will probably be fine. If you drop it and then step on it.... I'm not sure what might happen.
Regarding its use, I think kids would love it and would probably find more use for the magnifying glass and thermometer than adults would. For outdoorsy people, it can be a handy backup gadget. I have nice flashlights, a GPS, and compasses, but this provides backups (or backups to backups) in a tiny little package that weighs next to nothing. A lot of people carry a whistleanyway, so it makes sense to carry one of these.
..and, the light has a hair trigger, so I've found it shining brightly (seeming on its own) which must be running down the battery.
...I don't care for the whistle [I wanted a shrill high pitched sound -- it's low and it sounds like a toy or electric train whistle,
consequently my dogs totally ignore it. [ I bought a dog whistle, then, and it has many different pitches, many of which the y respond to]
