Oh wow, I knew it was small but that seems like it'd disappear compared to the bulk of my car keys.
I do like that size.
If it makes you feel better I don't carry a whistle either. There's one in my truck within the "survival pouch" of my Falcon II, but I haven't had a need for it since I was forced to direct some seriously congested traffic at a festival six years ago. I like to think that if I were going to go hoofing it off into the woods that I'd carry it with me, but if I weren't carrying the bag I'd probably forget about it.
I plan on including an Acme 636, Fenix E01, US Shelby P38, and small pill fob as EDC oriented gifts this year for Christmas, in addition to my traditional Carrabba's gift cards
That looks like a great Christmas present package! If I were on your list I'd be very happy with that in my stocking.
I purchased the Nitecore single Ti whistle and at first it was just because I didn't have one, however since having it on my keys, i have used it a few times when I have needed to get get someones attention. I guess its a case of if its there it will be used.
J just bought a Sawyer whistle and a Velleno Maze with 7 ice blue tritiums.
As long as you have a small piece of paper or thin plastic, you will always have a whistle. May not be as loud as an actual whistle, but better than nothing.

As long as I have two fingers I have a whistle louder then most.
I've never had a loud whistle myself. It's like rolling your tongue some can't do it. So I carry a whistle mainly so I have it when we go hiking so I can find the kids and they can find me
I didn't say I don't own whistles.
I've carried a Fox Sonik for years. Not a shred of bling but it's cheap, loud (over 120 db's), has no moving parts, and is plastic so hot and cold are no problem. Ever try a metal whistle that's been sitting inside a car that's pushing 120°F? Or when the outside temp is -15°F?
A loud whistle can save lives. Been there, done that. 120+ db's will definitely get the attention of man or beast.
I figure that if it takes up almost no space and weighs next to nothing, takes no training or effort to use, and will work every single time it makes the "must have" list of life saving EDC equipment.
