Viewing 3 items in Whistles
When out mountaineering, hiking or trekking, it is important to be able to raise alarm if anything should go wrong. A mountain whistle is the most suitable form of raising alarm when caught out in a precarious situation, it can be used to alert a member of the walking group, other hikers or search and rescue team as to your whereabouts. There are different types of outdoor survival whistles available ranging from 85 dB (decibels) up to 122 dB. For reference, 80 dB is roughly how loud a vacuum cleaner is and 100 dB is about as loud as a chainsaw. The louder the whistle the better. You never know what other noises will be around you when you need to use your emergency whistle. Outback Jacks stocks Lifesystems, Trekmates and Coghlans outdoor survival and emergency whistles.
