Outdoor Tech came on the scene in 2011 providing rugged Bluetooth solutions for listening to music on the go. Since then they have made the Fortune 500 list, and according to Inc. Magazine they are one of America’s fastest growing privately held companies.
“Outdoor Tech has quickly been accepted by a growing population of consumers who want to incorporate music and connectivity to their devices while pursuing their favorite outdoor activities whether it’s skiing and snowboarding or bike commuting and paddling,” says Caro Krissman, Outdoor Tech founder and CEO. “The quality and durability of the products resonate with an audience that spans from pro action sports athletes to backyard gardeners and business travelers. The broad appeal of the brand and the lifestyle it represents has helped us rapidly grow in a number of markets.”
Their product line ranges from water resistant Bluetooth headphones, to water resistant speakers that will attach to your bike’s handlebars, to speakers you can take paddleboarding, to audio chips for your snowboard helmet, to their newest addition of power banks.
Rugged is the resounding theme when it comes to Outdoor Tech’s products. They are designed for active people who are actually going to use them. They don’t need to be babied, and because of the shockproof, dustproof, water resistant construction of most of their products, they can go pretty much wherever you take them.
They are the creators of the first universal, fully wireless audio CHIPS for ski and snowboard helmets. These allow you to be connected to your music without being tethered to it and many helmet liners are now designed to be CHIP ready.
Outdoor Tech headphones include two ear bud options, and three over ear options. The ear buds are Tags and Orcas. Tags offer Hi-Fi sound and a mic so you can take calls as you go. They are effective to 32 feet. And all of the controls are, of course, conveniently located right on the ear bud. Orcas are newer to the lineup and add sweat proof-ness and water resistance to the package. They come with lots of fit options so they work for just about everyone.
The over ear headphones include the entry level DJ Slims. These are very low profile, lightweight headphones with a large, comfy ear pad and built in mic so you can listen to music, watch movies, take calls, or Skype with no annoying wires. The Privates are the meat and potatoes of the headphones. They are also rugged, lightweight, and comfy. And for the price, the sound quality is great! These are my choice on flights for listening to music or watching movies. They fold up nicely and come in some pretty cool colors so you’ll be stylin’ wherever you take them. The swipe controls make it easy to start, stop, and skip around. The newest addition to this category is the Tuis (said “two-ees”). These are very sleek, classy headphones that offer many refinements in both sound and design. Again, coming in at a reasonable price, these headphones have a lot to offer.
For portable speakers take your pick of the Buckshot, Turtle Shell 2.0, or Big Turtle Shell. The Buckshot is a small, rubberized, cylindrical speaker designed to combat the occasional drop. It has a handlebar mount and is, as you should expect by now, dust and water-resistant. It has a built in mic, a range of 33 feet, and up to 16 hours of hi-fi sound or talk time. This versatile little speaker can go anywhere with you.
The Turtle Shell 2.0 and the newer, bigger Big Turtle Shell are slightly bigger solutions to taking your music with you. They are the perfect solution if you want wireless audio in your room, at your pool party, at the campsite, etc. The Turtle Shell 2.0 features better sound than it’s predecessor (the Turtle Shell) and comes in several different colors so it looks and sounds better than most others in its class. These are speakers that you can take paddleboarding!
You need a power bank that is as rugged as your wireless audio, and now you can get it. The Kodiak from Outdoor Tech is portable power in the characteristic dustproof, shockproof, water-resistant package that you should be expecting. Now you don’t need to worry about running out of juice when you are out playing if you have your Kodiak power bank with you. It will keep you charged up on the go, and with a fun selection of colors you can find one to suit your mood.
If you are looking to streamline your audio a little, lose the wires, and find rugged, portable solutions, all at a reasonable price, look no further than Outdoor Tech. It’s not a coincidence that they are growing fast!
