Kestrel 1000 Wind Meter
Here's the one that started it all! Kestrel developed the 1000 Pocket Wind Meter in 1995 when NK co-owner, Richard Kellerman, needed a reliable wind meter for flying his glider. Over 10 years later, it looks a little slicker, and it still gives you the reliable, accurate wind measurements that you need.
The Kestrel 1000 Wind Meter is the base model in the extensive assortment of Kestrel pocket weather meters. Simple and compact, the Kestrel 1000 fits right into the palm of your hand and weighs a mere 65 grams. It's also extremely durable and totally waterproof, allowing you to measure wind speeds in even the harshest weather conditions. It even floats.
Convenient and reliable, the Kestrel 1000 is the perfect tool for model plane pilots, kite boarders, and other outdoor enthusiasts who rely on accurate wind speed information. A hard slide-on case, lanyard, and battery are included.
Winds can be measured on any Kestrel up to 135 mph. We only guarantee the accuracy of the measurement to be within tolerance up to 89 mph. Also at those speeds, we do not recommend any prolonged exposure as it could damage the impeller at those speeds for any prolonged length of time. It is similar to being able to measure very hot temperatures outsides of the spec range but do not do it for any extended time.
