For those of you who like to know just how cold and windy it really is, the Kestrel 2000 Pocket Wind Meter is your reality check. Whether contemplating which wetsuit the cold water warrants, or checking to see how low the wind chill is, the Kestrel 2000 is the easy-to-use tool you need.
Winter sports enthusiasts around the world love Kestrel Meters. Thanks to the patented external temperature sensor, the Kestrel 2000 can take accurate water and snow temperature readings, and since it is isolated from the case, you can be sure that the temperature the Kestrel Meter is reading is accurate and not influenced by your hand warming the unit.
Kestrel Meters were used by the 2006 US Biathlon Olympic Team to measure air and snow temperature to aid in ski-wax selection decisions and measure the wind downrange.

1 inch diameter impeller with precision axle and sapphire bearings. Off-axis accuracy -1% @ 5º off-axis; -2% @ 10º; -3% @ 15º. Calibration drift < 1% after 100 hours use at 16 MPH / 7 m/s. Sustained operation above 60 MPH / 27 m/s will wear impeller rapidly and may cause destruction of impeller. Replacement impeller (NK PN-0801) may be field-installed without tools (US Patent 5,783,753).
