    Details

    Whether out of necessity or just for fun, the Brunton Atmospheric Data Center Pro does an incredible job of interpreting the weather around you.

    The Brunton Atmospheric Data Center Pro gives you every conceivable weather measurement in the palm of your hand. The ADC Pro tracks the climate where you are and reports on an incredible array of conditions, from temperature and altitude to a 12-hour weather forecast. Fickle weather can cause mayhem on your backpacking, skiing, or climbing trip. The ADC Pro tracks temperature, relative air density, heat index, relative humidity, dew point, barometric pressure, and wind chill. It can even look at trends and forecast the coming 12-hour's weather. If the barometer drops, the Brunton ADC Pro alerts you—a nice feature, particularly if your view of incoming weather is blocked by the peak you're climbing. This handy gadget also tells you the altitude, and an altimeter alarm tells you when you've broken a preset altitude as you make your way up a Colorado Fourteener. A ski run counter is a fun feature on the slopes. You also get standard features like time, day, and date, along with a chronograph and race timer.

    Decent altimeter/anenometer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased this unit primarily for its barometer. For altitude readings, it is adequate and reasonably accurate so long as you regularly calibrate it (as with any altimeter).

    I've also found myself using the anemometer capability regularly. It's also adequate for this purpose though I suspect that its accuracy will degrade over time as the little fan thingy corrodes or its bearing dries out from exposure to the elements.

    Those things considered, it's still quite antiquated. I like the old-school display (green background, black stencil text) because it's simple, readable, and allows it to run for 3 months at a time. But the IR connection to your computer requires a dongle that you'd expect to have been sitting on a shelf for the last 20 years at RadioShack and should have been retired in the 1990s.

    A lot of the features are wonky at best, particularly the alarms. But as long as you're e.g. in camp and not on the move, they can be relied upon.

    I had buyer's remorse the day that this arrived, yet I took it out with me on trip after trip. Despite its shortcomings and certain anachronic features, I haven't found another unit that offers all of the functionality in one small package. Just remember that if a mysterious beeping sound wakes you up in the mountains to check this unit first and save yourself a month of fevered curiosity. It's the storm alarm that you didn't bother configuring responding to swift changes in pressure!

    To launch or not to launch? Doesn't matter what you a chucking into the wind this thing will give you valuable info instead of that gut feeling that the katabatic monster is going to totally crush you shit, or you!

      Brunton ADC pro has everything you need to forecast from the field, downloads to your computer if you log your trek...

      This may be a silly question but is it waterproof. If so, to what standard? Thanks much.

      Sort of, it can take a dunking but the seals won't withstand pressure: no diving. That being said Brunton replaced mine when my seal failed so you don't need to fret too much about measuring water velocities.
