The Fugoo Tough will keep mak­ing beau­ti­ful mu­sic wher­ever you take it

Men's Fitness - - Kit Bag -

Most ‘rugged’ por­ta­ble speak­ers are like school bul­lies: noisy, un­pleas­ant to lis­ten to and not as tough as they think they are. The Fugoo Tough, on the other hand, not only sounds beau­ti­ful but

it can also sur­vive en­vi­ron­ments that would make Ray Mears look for the near­est Airbnb. It’s sand­proof, snow­proof and wa­ter­proof, and has been tested for drops up to 183cm. It also makes all types of mu­sic sound lovely thanks to its two tweet­ers, two woofers and two pas­sive ra­di­a­tors

(for the non-au­dio­philes, these help dis­tin­guish the high-, mid- and low-range fre­quen­cies to make all mu­sic sound ex­actly as it should). There are mounts avail­able to at­tach it to just about any­thing, while sup­port for Siri and Google Now mean you can get weather up­dates while moun­tain bik­ing or find out how much the world weighs while ab­seil­ing. And then there's its 40-hour bat­tery life – for com­par­i­son, the next best bat­tery for a Blue­tooth speaker cur­rently avail­able is 20 hours, and that’s at half vol­ume. The wa­ter­proof re­mote (avail­able sep­a­rately)

even dou­bles as a bot­tle opener, safely se­cur­ing the Fugoo Tough’s place on our next trip.
