Picture yourself sitting around a campfire with some friends after a long day, logging 13 miles while lugging everything you need on your back. You’re all cracking jokes and talking about life in general with some light tunes in the background to help set the mood. Sounds great, but a little far-fetched because most portable speakers aren’t practical to carry into the backcountry because they’re too heavy, break easily, and are hard to pack.
The Gear: FRESHeTECH All-Terrain Sound
The Breakdown: A lightweight, portable speaker, that packs a punch and is easy to take anywhere
What I’m digging:
For such a small speaker, the All-Terrain Sound can really play some loud tunes (be careful not to disturb those around you). The control buttons on the side are a cinch to use and I never have to pull my phone out of my pocket to change the song, volume, or answer a call. Yea–there’s a built-in mic so you can even talk on the phone. Pairing through Bluetooth is easy, so easy a not-so tech savvy person would think they had a chance at being the next Steve Jobs.
I really like the clip function, so I don’t have to pack this speaker away. I’ll clip it onto different parts of my backpack (shoulder strap, hip belt, gear loops) and play some music for my friends and I to enjoy on the trails. This thing has got a killer battery that lasts 12 hours and I’ll use it on multiple climbing, hiking, and surf trips without having to re-charge the battery.
What I’m missing:
My biggest complaint is the direction of the sound. With the speaker on top, the best quality of sound comes when the speaker’s pointed directly at me. Something that’s put this speaker over the top is if it had 360 sound.
A swivel clip would do wonders as well. Right now I feel a little constricted to where I can hang the All-Terrain Sound and I believe a swivel clip would open up the options of where I can hang this thing.
The All-Terrain Speaker is a great portable and rugged, Bluetooth, speaker out there for anyone that likes to keep their pack light wherever they go.
