The Kestrel 1000 Pocket Wind Meter provides all of the reliable, accurate wind measurements that you need. The large impeller turns in the faintest of breezes and is easily replaced.

This portable anemometer allows you to quickly change between knots, meters per second, kilometers per hour, miles per hour, feet per minute, and Beaufort. And the hard cover lets you throw the Kestrel 1000 in your pack without damage.

I wanted a simple wind gauge and this should be perfect. Will not use until summer but am looking forward to using it then.

Very easy to use, multiple scales
By Richard

5 stars Exactly what I wanted
The basic Kestrel pocket wind meter is exactly what I wanted for checking the wind speed while sailing or paddling my kayak. The meter is simple to use, gives an instant reading, and it tucks easily into the pocket of my life vest. It's waterproof and has a rugged, no-nonsense case. Perfect for use on a boat.

5 stars Kestrel Anemometer
Great basic unit. We needed something to measure windstorm velocities at remote locations and also at waterfront locations during periods of tropical storms. This fits the bill!

5 stars Great Product

5 stars Ideal for task
Used this instrument in conjunction with analysis of FAA Radar antenna rotation. Needed to know impact of wind on sail, to factor observed acelerartion / deceleration effects on linearity measurements. Very useful.

5 stars wind meter
Havn't used it yet. Will use it in the summer when I ride my bike.
