This is the best speaker I have used, to date. I have had the privelage of using many others that cost much more, and aren't nearly as impressive as this Rugged Rukus.
The sound is great, and loud enough to keep people away if your intentions are the same as mine. It is very easy to put some pop in your step at camp, at home, on the beach, or at the park with your favorite tunes blasting. Small enough to easily fit in a backpack, or to hang off a backpack if you need a quick re-charge too!
So glad I saved my hard earned money, now I can spend it or save it as I choose!
This thing is awesome. I've taken it everywhere, from raft trips in Idaho to beach trips up and down the Pacific Coast and it's put up with the abuse I've put it through. The solar charging capacity is an added benefit.
