The Kestrel 3000 Pocket Weather Meter is the perfect environmental tool for professional and collegiate athletic trainers, storm chasers, and wildland firefighters alike who understand the importance of monitoring field conditions and keeping workers and athletes safe in hot and humid conditions. You know you’re working hard – make sure you’re staying safe. The Kestrel 3000 pocket weather meter keeps you from working past your limits.
The Kestrel 3000 measures wind speed, temperature and wind chill like the Kestrel 2000, but it also adds three very important measurements: relative humidity, heat stress index, and dew point temperature. These additional measurements are extremely important to know when working or playing outdoors in hot and humid conditions and are also useful in many professional applications including firefighting and HVAC.
Extremely popular with woodland firefighters and smokejumpers, the Kestrel 3000 has practically become required equipment with these brave men and women in the field. The Kestrel 3000 is also a vital part of our Heat Stress line of meters that keep people safe from heat stress injuries.
As with all Kestrel meters, the 3000’s sensitive and user-replaceable impeller technology provides accurate wind speed info. Additionally, an external temperature sensor and waterproof casing allow you to gauge the temperature of water and snow, as well as the open air. A hard slide-on case, lanyard, and battery are included.
Track weather conditions and record trends at a burn site or from the minute you get on a fire, then export data to get crucial information where it needs to go. Please note: since this unit does not have density altitude, it cannot be used with ballistic applications.

For military, or any night-time use, the Olive Drab NV version of the Kestrel 3500 features a night-vision preserving backlight which helps in sustaining natural light. The backlight incorporates optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimize blue and green spectrum light to preserve night vision. (Note: This backlight appears soft greyish pink, not “red”, and is still in the visible spectrum which makes it not compatible with night-vision equipment.)
The Kestrel 3500’s easy to use menu system scrolls through 9 different environmental measurements. It has an external temperature sensor with a waterproof casing that allows you to gauge the temperature of water, snow, and the open air.
