NOT 2014 item!
Comments:
Digital thermometer breaks easily, therefore analogue is cheaper and better. 2-3 thermometers are optimal to get air and snow measurements done fast. Metal crystal card ices up, better to use darkened plexi-glas or coated metal (with engraved readings, not printed). 6x magnifier is too low, 8x is minimal, 10-12 is optimal for non-scientific use.

Best thing is the case, which is rugged and protects the sensitive items (especially thermometers) pretty well. I ripped out the foam so I can fit in all my snow study stuff (2mm nylon cord for block cutting, 3 analogue thermometers, 2 pencils, 1-2 crystal cards, 1 10x magnifier, AIARE field book).
