The Kestrel family of weather and environmental meters began in 1996 when NK co-owner Richard Kellerman needed a dependable wind meter for flying his glider. Recognized today as the standard for accuracy and reliability by professionals and enthusiasts alike, Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters can be found at the top of Everest, on Special Forces missions, chasing tornadoes and in your backyard. All Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters are designed and built in the USA to stand up to years of rugged use, calibrated to NIST-traceable standards and come with a five-year warranty.
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–and it even floats. Convenient and reliable, the Kestrel 1000 is the perfect tool for model plane pilots, kite boarders, and other outdoor enthusiasts that rely on accurate wind speed information. It accurately measures current, average, and maximum wind speeds. The Kestrel 1000 uses a sensitive user-replaceable impeller to measure the wind. The clear and durable LCD screen can be changed at any time to display wind data that suits a variety of applications.
