The next generation of environmental conditions monitoring is the here with the Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter.

Equipped with the ability to measure wind speed, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and density altitude, the Kestrel 5000 is a vital tool for comprehensive, on-the-go environmental analysis. The Kestrel 5000 Pocket Weather Meter combines remarkable measuring and logging abilities with a compact design. It upholds the reputed accuracy, reliability, and operability of the Kestrel 4000 and is augmented with new features, rendering it optimal for research, safety, exploration, agriculture, and any other area where accurate environmental data is indispensable.

The Kestrel 5000 also tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data.

The Kestrel 5000 and the Kestrel 5000 with LiNK are the two editions of this weather meter; data from both models can be transmitted to a Windows or Mac desktop through the water-resistant Kestrel Data Transfer Cable in conjunction with the Kestrel LiNK app (please refer to the following section).

The 5000 with LiNK Bluetooth Connectivity allows data to be transmitted wirelessly to compatible iOS (iPhone, iPad) or Android devices, or with the optional Bluetooth USB Dongle, to a Windows or Mac computer.

The Kestrel 5000 Pocket Weather Meter boasts an improved display with a larger font size and enhanced resolution contrast, and is also equipped with optional wireless connectivity for iOS and Android, plus further app support. Built to last, this device is highly resistant to impacts, dust, moisture and difficult environments.
U.S. Special Forces, combat weather units, wildland firefighters, sky jumpers, Mt. Everest researchers, and car pit crews have consistently utilized the Kestrel 5000 to obtain the necessary environmental data. On-screen meteorologists regularly deploy a Kestrel when covering hurricanes. For two decades, scientists have placed confidence in Kestrel's precision and transportability; its effectiveness is evidenced in multiple scholarly journal entries. If environmental conditions influence your job or leisure activity, the Kestrel is an ideal fit.

    When I first purchased my 5700 instrument along with case and vane kit, I had found Extreme Meters via Amazon. When I placed the order I had meant the 5700 Elite but had ordered the standard by mistake. After I received this meter. I called Mike at Extreme Meters and explained my error. He quickly and kindly helped me return the standard and allowed this towards the Elite with LiNK.
    Here is a copy of the review that I left at Amazon. As I take my shooting out further and further, both at the range and in the field, the weather conditions make more of an influence on the shot to target. The Kestrel 5700 Elite with LiNK and ballistics is the state of the art solution. I added the case and tripod for a weather station that travels with me. I’ve found the instrument readings to be right on. As is the ballistics calculator, or you can even pair to the best of the most popular ones. Ballistics AE, StrelokPro, Hornady 4DOF I’ve verified. I would love to see Kestrel and ATN give us the ability to pair their instruments. Wow, a shooting system from the future. I currently use a single meter at the muzzle. But plan on adding a second for at the target for those longer shots at the range.

    It's been great. I like how the meter can fill in the atmosphere on my ballistic phone app.
