Braven BRV-1 Rugged Outdoor Speaker


Braven’s BRV-1 is a compact rugged bluetooth speaker perfect for your spring and summer activities.  It’s smaller than some of the other tough speakers which makes it great for travel.  Another helpful feature is the charging port, so you can charge mobile devices in a pinch. The BRV-1 is shock resistant and waterproof, so it’s a great choice for camping, kayaking, hiking, and hanging out by the pool.

The sound is great. I listen to a wide variety of music and thought the speaker sounded  awesome and loud enough for my needs.  I’m still in awe of how something so tiny can sound this good. You get 12 hours of play time with this little guy. It has a rubber housing that gives it a soft, grippy feel. The black body with blue accents is a nice look–the blue helps it to stand out, making it easier to see.

It comes with a wrist strap like the kind you get with cameras. This is actually handy and you can use it to secure the speaker to a backpack, bicycle basket, or hang from a tree branch while you’re swinging in your hammock. The Braven BRV-1 is a good all around travel and adventure speaker, and a great value at $99. Find it HERE.
