There’s no shortage of portable Bluetooth speakers out there, but lord are a lot of them ugly. What I need is something that will not look amiss sitting on a stump next to me while I hew a yew in my red plaid flannel. Wait, what’s this one?!
The Rock Out 2 is the latest from GoalZero, which is better known for its solar chargers and emergency batteries. It’s a collab with Woolrich, the familiar — well, to lumberjacks — outdoor clothing company that has made a specific black and red plaid its trademark pattern.
You can expect the speaker to do all the usual tricks: It has two 3-watt drivers, a mic for taking calls “from your crew” while it’s synced to your phone and a headphone input, as well. It’s also weather-proof, suggesting it’ll handle a cloudbreak or roll in the duff just fine (but don’t take it swimming with you).
You can pick up the checked Rock Out 2 at GoalZero for $80.[gallery link="file" ids="1375107,1375104,1375106,1375109,1375108,1375103"]
