Its Getting Cold Out There

Cold Weather Protection

Cold Weather Protection

I’m trying out the U°THERMIC Coldscreen Cold Weather Protection this winter while biking and running.  Hoping to extend the days I can be outside.  The temperatures in Maine are dropping and it really cuts into my time outdoors.  Read HERE to see what Cold Weather Protection is all about.  Now, if someone could do something about how little day light we have this time of year, I’d be thrilled!

The unit I am testing is the Red Cross edition but it is identical to the regular to the eton FRX3 weather radio in every way except for the American Red Cross identification on the hand turbine crank handle. You might be asking what exactly is an FRX3?  The answer would be it is many things, but in a nutshell, it is a NOAA weather radio with AM/FM radio, an LED flashlight, an LED beacon light, a clock with an alarm clock function and a smart-phone charger (and other similar devices).  To ensure the FRX3 is always ready, it can be powered in several ways.  To read the rest of the review please click here.

Kestrel 2500 Pocket Weather Meter (update)

I love a product that is small, light, durable, and does exactly what it is supposed to. So from what I have experienced the Kestrel 2500 weather meter really fits the bill. Read the second installment of my 3 part review of this fine product.

Life has gotten a bit crazy for me recently, as it often does for many of us.  Between increased responsibilities at work, an upcoming move, and a baby on the way, I have had to work hard to create opportunities to get out and test the Kestrel Pocket Weather Tracker 4500.  As much as I look forward to the challenges that life brings, it’s nice to have an excuse to get outside and leave the hectic pace behind for an afternoon:  “Sorry, honey, we’ll have to pick out colors for the baby’s room tomorrow.  I have to go for a hike to test this cool piece of gear today!”

“The weather forecast said the winds would be 10mph…it sure seems more like 12mph to me…” Now I can know for sure!

Sounds silly? It is, but the information could be useful if you are launching a model rocket that is expected to go over 1100’ and there are trees only a few hundred yards away.

I was given the opportunity to review the Kestrel 2500 Pocket Weather Meter, and I invite you to join me as I put it through its paces over the next 3 months to see how it performs.
