Your Radio Raheem moment has arrived

Before the days of Bluetooth and noise cancellation and arguing about headphone jacks, there was but one way to liten to music on the go: throw a boombox over your shoulder, Radio Raheem-style.

Well, good news, fans of pissing off strangers in public: the boombox is back, and better than ever.

Handmade in California from ultra durable casing and wood paneling, the Black Pelican BoomCase is a suitcase-inspired speaker system that’s completely waterproof when sealed. Fully customizable and compatible with Bluetooth as well as plug-in devices, the five audio components (two woofers, two tweeters and one speaker) in the 16-pound system are protected by heavy grills when the 100-watt Black Pelican is in use.

Priced at $895 (plus shipping), the Black Pelican is available in four colors. And since it’s completely rechargeable, there’s no need to sweat the D batteries.

So pick one up.
