The Kestrel Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics takes the guesswork
out of long-range shooting, even out to the transonic and subsonic flight
range of your bullet.
This next-generation integrated weather meter and ballistics solver provides
the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original
Kestrel 4500 with Applied Ballistics but adds many new features and options.
If you're familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first thing you'll notice is
the larger, higher-resolution and contrast display and improved font
readability. The Kestrel 5 series also includes a built-in dual color
backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation.
Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel Elite is drop-proof, dust-proof,
waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage - so it
can accompany you to the range, hunt, match, deployment or engagement for
years to come. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take
your Kestrel meter with you.
In addition to the ballistics solver capabilities, the Kestrel Elite is a
comprehensive weather meter for measurement and logging of primary
environmental conditions: wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity,
heat index, pressure and altitude. Paired with the Vane Mount, the Kestrel
Elite becomes a compact, easily-deployable weather station. Your data log
can be transferred to a mobile device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless
communication option and Kestrel LiNK app, or to a PC/MAC with either the
wireless USB Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable
USB Data Transfer Cable
Low profile, lightweight, waterproof cable provides wired connectivity to
Windows and Mac computers for fast data uploads and firmware updates.
Compatible with every model in the Kestrel 5 Series.
Sleek, rugged tripod vane mount
Small, secure, robust vane mount turns any Kestrel 5 Series meter into a
portable weather station that remains oriented into the wind. (Included in
some models where noted, otherwise sold as optional accessory.)
Large, high contrast screen
Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with
more visible information on the screen at all times. This high-resolution
display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get more information from
customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye
strain or fatigue.
Dual color backlight
Toggle backlight color between standard white and night-vision-preserving
red (NV). The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to
help users sustain natural night vision and reduced brightness to avoid
detection during night maneuvers.
Secure battery door
Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.
Scratch and breakage-resistant window
Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from
Corrosion-resistant battery compartment
Battery is isolated from electronics, reducing damage in the event of a
battery leak. (Note - Lithium AA batteries strongly recommended to avoid
battery leakage altogether.)
Icon-based navigation, intuitive keypad, and multiple languages make the
Kestrel a breeze to use.
