When you’re camping in the great outdoors, there’s nothing better than some tunes around the campfire. But just because you’re braving the elements doesn’t mean your best musical option is your campmates’ singing. Meet the KOAR All-Weather Bluetooth Speaker, which is about as rugged as a U.S. Marine.

This durable, portable speaker is designed for outdoor usage, ensuring you’re always have some beats while hitting the trails.

The KOAR is impressively water resistant, with a rating of IPX6. The silicon case absorbs everyday bumps and drops. Weighing in at just over one pound, it can be hooked onto any backpack with a carabiner. It is also designed to mount on the handlebars of your bike.

In action, the KOAR provides smooth sound through carefully tuned 2:1 speakers, with Bluetooth connectivity for wireless playback. The internal rechargeable battery offers more than 8 hours’ playback, or 10 days of power on standby mode. There’s also a built-in microphone for hands-free calling.

The KOAR is currently $54.99 (21% off) for international customers, and $34.99 (65% off) for U.S. customers. See the dropdown to navigate to the appropriate option, and enjoy free shipping either way.
