This thing is AMAZING. It does it's job and it's a small price to pay for your safety. I do a lot of solo hikes and/or hikes in the backcountry. I purchased a few of these whistles and have them on every backpack of mine and keep one in my car. I don't feel as if I go as deep to need a personal GPS locator, but this is the next best thing. I have never had to use this in an emergency situation, but I would trust it to work. I keep it attached to the chest strap of my backpack, and I do not go out of my way to treat my pack kindly. I have thrown this around quite a bit and it has yet to crack or break in a year. This is also an excellent tool to use to discourage wildlife approach. I have only used it on cows (they ran for the hills as fast as could be) and a deer, but if I encountered something like a cougar or bear, this would be sure to scare them or hurt their ears in some way. Safety is priceless.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
a must for open water kayakers

Small and loud - just what you want for open water kayaking when you need to draw attention to yourself for whatever reason.
A great alert whistle!

Women and children should have whistles for sounding an alarm. This one is light weight with a loud sound that would alert the neighborhood! An absolute must!
Great for open-water lifeguarding

I'm sure they'll hear me across the lake with this whistle.

This is the loudest whistle I've ever used, louder even than the fox40 whistles popular with hikers/SAR. Watch out for your hearing at full volume! It also handles well & allows you to control the precise volume and blowing effort very well. If there's a flaw it's the size, this thing is biger than the typical backpacker whistle, FYI so I probably won't take it on casual hikes.
