This speaker packs easily. It’s rugged. It’s rubber coated cover helps keep it in place. It can get sandy, wet, muddy, get spilled on, and it gets clean again, just hose it off. We liked being able to control the music directly from the speaker set on the edge of the pool. No worries if it fell in. It’s small enough to take with you, powerful enough to last while you are out, durable enough to take abuse, and you don’t have to worry about leaving it out in the rain.


By Digital Trends – N/A

The OmniJacket is massive in the world of portable speakers, with its hefty form factor and weight. Surprisingly, this nearly 2-pound speaker floats and its certified IP67 waterproof rating makes it submersible to 3 ft while also being dust, snow, and sand-proof. When Altec Lansing says everything, they really mean it, and they really want you to take this speaker outdoors.


By Technology Arena – N/A

Altec Lansing’s OmniJacket Bluetooth speaker sports best-in-class battery life, an ultra-rugged exterior, quality sound, is waterproof and floats.
