Perfect analog Alti.
I have 2 of these in different colors. They hold up to abuse and are good up to 18k ft. Glow face is great for night jumps. Alti 2 has great customer service as well.

Durable, Reliable, and Simple.
Excellent altimeter. I've jumped mine for a year now(around 120 jumps). I've banged it on the plane exiting multiple times and it still works. No worries about batteries dying.

great altimeter at a low price point
This altimeter works well on the way down. sometimes it's a bit sticky on the way up, but it works great when it counts. I love the glow face for sunset loads!

Reliable and Durable!
I bought the Green one. Although the green is not as bright as it appears in the images above... Its still a great quality product. Probably the most common Alti I have seen at the DZ. Always reliable.

Industry Standard
Great go to altimeter. Durability seems to be a non-issue so far. Get the glow face because it's better to have and not need than need and not have.

Reliable, sturdy, GREAT buy!
I have never used a different alti. This one is reliable and always does the job, not to mention I don't have to worry about accidentally banging it on the plane or dropping it because it is super durable. I also do not have to worry about batteries dying on me. 10/10 recommend!!

STOP! You've found the altimeter for you!
Reliable, accurate, and cheap. For an analog altimeter, this is it. No need to keep looking, you've found the best. There's a reason that this is the most common in our world. if it ever does need work, or just a good cleaning, Alti-2 will do it for you at a very low cost (in 2014 i paid $18 for a recalibration, cleaning, new face, new lens, etc), and in a hurry. Alti-2 is a GREAT company to do business with and they'll take great care of you. John Hawke (their fearless leader) is a great man and won't let you down

1st Piece of Equipment to Buy
This was the first gear purchase I made. I couldn't be happier with it and its simplicity and ease of use along with its reliability. Even though I've switched to a digital for my wrist, I still have this mounted on my mudflap just in case. Love this thing, only wish I could add some customization to the face plate to make it more fun.

Reliable and well-priced
I used one of these through AFF and getting my A-License. I'm not experienced, but I can say that the majority of the experienced jumpers at my DZ use these and haven't had second thoughts about their reliability. I bought one myself and have been happy with it so far. It's tough, reliable, and well-priced.

The old reliable altimeter
This is the first piece of gear you should buy. Old school big dial that you can read easily no matter how good or bad things are going. If the needle is in the red things aren't looking good. Doesn't get any more obvious than that. You will grow up in the sport and buy that Gucci digital altimeter but leave this one in your bag. One day you will turn on that digital only to realize the batteries are dead and you don't have any spares. Your Altimaster will still be there ready to jump with you even though you ignored it for the last 6 months. Smack this thing against the side of the plane as much as you want. It will last. It should be in those Timex commercials from the 70s with Jim McKay.

Excellent altimeter, great for all uses.
When you say analog altimeter this is the one (I feel like) first comes to mind for most people. It's tough, reliable, accurate and can be used for just about any application. Even if you prefer a digital this altimeter is awesome to have as a backup especially if you know you're going into water for example.

Good product, one minor issue
I have been jumping this type of altimeter since I started skydiving and for the most part I love it. The only issue I have ever run into is its accuracy at high altitudes. Above about 10,000 ft. AGL it has read up to 1,000 ft. above true altitude which has given me scares about its accuracy at lower, more critical altitudes.

~ChutingStar Note: All skydiving analog altimeters lose some of their accuracy at higher altitudes, but then the accuracy returns at the lower, more critical altitudes.
