Gear Review: Boom Movement Swimmer Speaker

High quality sounding bluetooth speaker is easy to secure on various sites.

Bargain sound

Like packing music to share? You’ll love this affordable Bluetooth speaker, which delivers innovative design, quality sound, waterproofing, and long battery life (around a week) for just $60. Testers loved the bendable, 6.2-inch tail—use it to make a stand or secure the tennis-ball-size speaker to just about anything. “First thing I do when I set up camp is fasten the loop to a thin tree limb,” says one Colorado tester.

Says another: “I tether it to my bike’s top tube and jam tunes on long rides.” The IPX7 rating means it can handle nearly 30 minutes of submersion. And sound is good: “While some lower end frequencies wash out, it handles a range, from subdued acoustic music to dense electronic arrangements,” says our audiophile. $60; 12.8 oz.;

No kidding Mia.
Personally, the first thing I pull out is my Satellite phone w/ connection to the Internet, my laptop, and I start working on emails. It usually takes me a while to pull the speaker, music, and 12 pack of IPA beers out to start relaxing in the BC. Lucky reviewer!
