    I want to get better whistles for my wife and daughters' keychains.

    What is the LOUDEST keychain whistle that you have found?

    you may find that the "storm" whistles are generally considered the loudest.

    I carry one on my PFD (EDC when I'm "out") but they are rather large. -
    I do believe they are the loudest I've ever heard - beyond "X" number of decibels...it's all just rather loud... :shrug:
    but I do trust my life to the storm when paddling.

    Fox 40 Micro's exist on our family keychains and nightstands and kids bags...flat, easy to carry, lots of color choices and very loud. ;D

    The Victorinox whistle from the SOS kits hit around 120db and are easy to blow. TOPS knives also sells a similar flat 3 chamber whistle, so I would assume will probably hit the same db range.
    They seem "cheap" but I've had my Vic whistle for years. Easy to blow without overblowing. Flat and compact.

    Agreement on the Storm whistle. It is big but, on a lanyard, it was usually tucked in a PFD pocket. Heard pretty easily over the loudest rapids the SouthEast U.S. had to offer. ;)
