The Fox 40 Safety Whistle is a super loud pea-less whistle that you can use as a signaling device to get someones attention in case you find yourself in trouble. Small enough to fit in the pocket of your PFD, or even a shirt pocket, the Fox 40 Safety Whistle is a key piece of safety equipment that every paddler should carry with them.
This is pretty much the standard whistle. It's simple design makes it reliable. Made in Canada. The price is really good. You probably won't find it cheaper anywhere else.
It's pretty loud and sure to get attention. BUT...it seems that you have to breath into it fairly hard to get it loud. Makes me wonder if someone who is in serious trouble would have the ability to really blow that hard into it.
This whistle is a must for any river use, be it fishing, kayaking, or paddle boarding. Sound of water is deafening and having something to communicate to others in a $6 product is a no brainier.
At first wasn't too impressed with this whistle, it was the first non pea whistle I ever tried and it wasn't to loud. But after experimenting with it I figured out how to use it properly and it works great.
