This is a good thermometer that allows me to quickly and accurately measure the water temperature and make appropriate fishing decisions, especially during the hot summer months. Despite its metal construction and “rugged” descriptive title, others have noted durability problems with the thermometer’s sheath and cap. However, I have experience no problems by storing the thermometer in the dedicated sleeve of my Tac-L-Pak vest. To avoid problems, I suggest not hanging this thermometer on an external zinger or lanyard, but rather storing it in a pack, shirt or vest pocket when not in use. All-in-all, this is a useful fishing tool at a reasonable price.

Had an issue with the cap and the thermometer turning also. Easy fix was to flatten the threads with a file then hold the thermometer while tightening the cap. Works beautifully and I bought it because of the price point.
First Impressions -
By: Marknews from Bangor, Maine
Cold and blowing snow outside, but the Rugged Stream Thermometer brought thoughts of warm, still evenings and the shift in water temperatures from spring to summer. It is as advertised: designed to be easy to use and read while constantly protected by a sturdy sheath. No case to remove (and drop in the water--I had one of those!), and comes with the option to attach to vest with clip or ring. Thanks.
Excellent Thermometer -
Very accurate. Two small drops of super glue on seam and item is set to go, no problems.
Poor Workmanship -
By: flychick from Northern NJ
Like another reviewer here, I had the thermometer attached to my vest for a whole 48 hours before the metal housing unscrewed or something and the bottom fell off. It was pure luck I was able to see the thermometer it stuck in the vest fabric, Now this is a $13 paperweight. Big disappointment. :(
No brainer -
A true no brainer. Gave me the information I needed and then got out of my way.
