Outdoor Travel Emergency Whistles Mountain Whistle Life Systems
Mountain Whistle

A small metal whistle that is exceptionally loud. Ideal for use on the mountain and compact enough to have on a keyring or rucksack toggle.

In the case of an emergency make yourself as comfortable as possible by taking or making shelter, but at the same time remember to make yourself as visible as possible. High spec fabric bivi bags can be found on the Camping page, as can bothy bags, but what most people will carry on the hills is a plastic Dalesmanbivi bag, which is tough, cheap, waterproof and bright orange for good visibility in miserable weather. Reflective 'space blanket' style survival bags come in a variety of forms, ranging from basic sheets from Hi Gear, which weigh so little and cost so little that there is no excuse not to carry one, to survival jackets from Blizzard Pack and heavier duty survival bags from Life Systems. Our staff prefer the Mountain Thermal Bag in the winter, or when conditions are or might become bad. You can hide from the howling elements in them, or use them to treat hypothermia. Not as cosy as a big duvet and fluffy slippers, but much easier to fit in your bumbag. And your duvet isn't waterproof.

When things turn bad, you want to see and be seen. To this end we have flares from Pains Wessex (please be aware there are factors that may prevent us from sending these through the post). On a smaller scale, snap lightsticks come from OmniGlow. These are popular as tent lighting, too. For candles, click Coghlans. We have a variety of other lighting options in their own section. The spectrum runs from LEDkeyrings to Petzl headtorches (including the handy eLite and Signal, designed for emergency use) to classic Maglites and Lanterns. Super high power lamps are in the Caving section, and water compatible lights can be found with the Kayaking Rescue gear. Matches and lighters for all weather are under Cooking and Eating.

The other way of attracting attention is with noise. We have basic whistles from Acme and nicer metal ones from Life Systems that fit neatly on a key ring.

In winter, other emergency kit that you might want to carry includes: avalanche transmitters and recievers, avalanche probes and snow shovels, these are all found in the Avalanche Safety section, on the Climbing catalogue.
