Kestrel Environmental Meter
The Kestrel 5000 replaced the Kestrel 4000
You won’t get a ‘better’ temperature reading, wind reading, etc, or even more readings than available on the 4000… still the same quality USA made meter backed by a 5 year warranty. Don’t feel the need to rush out and replace your old one, but…. there are some advantages that may or may not effect you.
