As a professional in life saving Search and Rescue, and hard of hearing from years of sirens, helicopters, and shooting, I can attest that there is no better whistle. It's loud lower tones overcome common hearing problems, and can be heard over loud environments, such as white water. While it is large, the bulk is minimal comared to its effectiveness. I have one on every rescue PFD I own! I recommend it to anyone!

I purchased this product knowing that by the excellent reviews, that it would be the best whistle for my needs as an avid kayaker, especially knowing it would work full of water. Unfortunately, I know from experience that in self rescues, getting back into a kayak with this whistle attached to my PFD it would either be very in the way or stripped of in the process. Hence, it was returned no questions asked. Thank you NRS.

    Comments about Storm Whistle:

    Whistle for safety on kayak. This whistle is super loud, actually hurts my ears when I use it, but it is what you want on the ocean for safety and fulfills the USCG requirement. I have one in each life jacket, mine and guests.

        Storm whistle is an essential back up communication to VHF marine radio, hand signals & yelling. Don't go on the water without it.

              You can find claims as high as 130 decibels, but the maker claims only 118-120.

              A:

              In an open air test, 106 db were measured. It is the loudest of the whistles we carry.
