Altec Lansing Life Jacket

Now that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Staying true to its distinctly rugged design, Altec Lansing Life Jacket promises a portable Bluetooth speaker that’s perfect for you thrill-seeking and outdoor-loving audiophiles. It exhibits five impressive features—sand proof, snow proof, dust proof, shock proof and water proof!

I was able to test its durability against dust, shock and water. First, while the Life Jacket was playing music, I dropped it in a tub of water, and then submerged it for a couple of minutes. To my delight, it was still booming with power even after being fully drenched! Next, I tried dropping it on cold concrete and dipping it in the cooler. I even took it a step further by smashing a slab of rock and a hammer. In the end, all my efforts proved to be pointless because this outdoor speaker is jam-packed with insurmountable power! It simply kept on playing music as if nothing happened. Still not fully convinced? You can check out a video online where the Altec Lansing Life Jacket was featured to have withstood gunshots and explosives! How insanely cool is that?

I guess one of the secrets behind the outrageousness of the Altec Lansing Life Jacket speaker lies within its fixed jacket and protective covering for the cable ports. I can tell that it was built with layers of high end shock proof technology. As for the rest of its heavy-duty mystery, well, let’s just say that an enormous drive to defy the impossible paved the way for its success.

In conclusion, I suggest you look no further if cutting edge resilience and a lifetime investment is what you seek in a portable Bluetooth speaker. The Altec Lansing Life Jacket is sure to keep you company through thick and thin, wherever and whenever.
