BRAVEN, known for its lines of rugged outdoor speakers and audio devices has teamed up with Burton, known for its lines of rugged outdoor snowboards, to create a…line of rugged outdoor products.

The co-branded line of portable, Bluetooth enabled speakers promise a mix of indestructibility and resistance to water and snow to deliver something qualified to produce audio at your next “Do you want to build a snowman?” binge.

Two models, the lightweight $80 BRV-1 with a microphone for speakerphone functions; and the $250 BRV-X, with TrueWireless technology to pair it with a second unit, will be on sale shortly.

The speakers actually look awesome. They can stream audio from your phone, have an IPX7 certified waterproof rating (which means you can splash them or submerge them in 3 feet of water for up to 30 seconds) and they double as a phone charger with a built-in battery pack.

“Burton is the absolute authority in winter sport culture and this collaboration is a unique opportunity to take our signature sound to new heights … literally,” said BRAVEN CEO Andy Fathollahi.

While we would have preferred a stronger IPX6 or 5 ATM water rating, we still suggest you check these speakers out.
