Hold off on buying one for a couple days. I bought two of the Caldwell ones about two years ago. I took one to Iraq, it lasted 15 months over there and is still kicking. The problem is that as soon as I got home we bought a new house and moved. That means there is no telling where the spare is. Give me a couple days to look for it and if I find it I'll send it to you. It tells the temp as well as the wind speed, the Kestrel
1000 only tells you the what the wind is doing...if memory serves me correct.
