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.
