Hey thanks folks. Yes Jim whiskey might be handy as well as a thermometer! The suunto core looks very nice but is a bit pricey for me ( I will keep an eye on cheap ones on ebay) it seems to allow you see a history so I could see the coldest temp thru the night or warmest thru the day.The casio is more affordable and is my main choice I think but doesn't seem to have a memory of temperatures.
Just checked out the Kestrel site- wow they look good, perhaps a bit big and expensive for the trail but might be fun for stormy scottish hills !

Yes, this is the watch I have.  Because it reads to a tenth of a degree, it seems accurate.  Of course you have to take it off at night to get a morning reading.   
Don't know why the price is so high.  It seems to be on eBay for $US 47.  And the Casio Amazon store for $US 41-43.   

I recommend carrying single malt.  You will never get cold, and feel a lot more intelligent than the jokers with the water bottle.

Hi folks,
Has anyone any recommendations for a trail thermometer? I would like one that I 
can record daily temperatures just for interest really so that I can keep a note 
in my journal. One that I could leave out overnight and it would record the 
minimum overnight temperature would be ideal. I guess keeping the weight down is 
important too!
My search so far has led me to a casio wrist watch type such as this one:  
http://www.amazon.com/Casio-Quartz-Digital-Display-SGW-100-1VEF/dp/B001CZXB80/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3JY9VZHJYJKYI&coliid=IUBXCTMABGJYO ?  
I am from Scotland and for some reason it is cheaper on uk amazon at about $50 
than this US link .
The other type I have looked at?is an old fashioned garden non-digital?min/max 
Anyway any thoughts or experience are appreciated!
