Kestrel Meter 3000 RH / Wind Meter 

Targeted toward and practically required for wildland firefighters in both fighting fires and controlled burn situations.  This Kestrel 3000 model was a principle factor that changed firefighting equipment standards from the previous standard, the belt weather kit.  It cut the weight of dated weather packs, confusion, and time, to this minimalist approach that was revolutionary in firefighting, where users lives literally depend on the accurate weather data their Kestrel 3000 provides. 

NK was the first to provide accurate relative humidity measurements from a hand-held weather meter, and the Kestrel 3000 features two patents on its humidity measuring sensors.

From the Kestrel 3000's accurate relative humidity readings, it also calculates the dewpoint and heat stress index —important information to know when working or playing outdoors in hot and humid conditions.

A common accessory for fire departments is the field calibration kit.    


The Kestrel 3000 has traditionally been the choice for firefighters.  It has RH, quick, easy and only $149.  That said... one reason to consider any of the Kestrel 5000 series:

With the new 5000 series (any) technology, the need to calibrate the RH is highly unlikely.  
Kestrel AU will stand by the RH for 5 years, and will adjust it within that 5 years if needed.  
Kestrel AU will repair, recalibrate or replace any defective product within the warranty period.  “Defective” includes measurements outside of our accuracy spec plus stated drift.
