BOOMBOTIX

Boombotixis going to be keeping the good vibes going along the journey with their portable speakers. This will be a long adventure so it will be nice to have some audio that can get us through several days of trekkin’.  One of the nice things about Boombotix speakers is that they feature an ultra high capacity lithium ion battery, and they’re incredibly lightweight.  They have a built on clip that allows us to fasten these little speakers to our jackets, backpacks, belts, pockets, or just about anything.  We love having music on our trip and it’s great to have a little companion that is truly engineered for the job.
