The Kestrel 2500 Handheld Weather Meter offers precise wind speed and temperature measurements, complemented by an air pressure sensor that provides altitude and barometric details. Monitoring air pressure changes aids in predicting upcoming weather shifts.
Adding to its capabilities is a digital altimeter, providing comprehensive weather information essential for various outdoor activities, from model aeroplane flights to rifle practice. A comparative chart showcases differences among different Kestrel models.
Like all Kestrels, the 2500 model utilizes a sensitive and replaceable impeller for accurate wind speed readings. Moreover, it includes an external temperature sensor and waterproof casing, enabling temperature measurements for water, snow, and the atmosphere.
The package comes with a sturdy slide-on case, lanyard, and battery. Initially designed as an economical option for long-range shooters, not requiring advanced ballistic features found in models like the 5700 Elite, the Kestrel 2500 offers a straightforward setup for station pressure, as illustrated in a simple instructional video.
The Olive Drab NV variant of the Kestrel 2500 for nocturnal use features a night-vision preserving backlight. This specialized backlight minimizes brightness and reduces blue and green light, maintaining night vision with a soft greyish-pink illumination. However, it's incompatible with night-vision equipment since it falls within the visible spectrum.
