Kestrel weather meters are some of the best handheld weather stations on the market. Our favorite is the Kestrel 5000, but we can understand if that's too expensive. There are a dizzying amount of options, making it difficult to choose.

Davis Vantage Pro2 Review

Ed Oswald

You might call the Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 the "granddaddy" of personal weather stations. This model has been around for the better part of two decades: I owned a first-generation Vantage Pro in the mid-2000s. It was the best weather station I ever owned and was worth every penny of the $500 I spent on it at the time.
