You may associate Bushnell with optics (and you would be correct to do so), but today we've learned that the company has taken on a new sense: hearing. Bushnell's new Outdoorsman Bluetooth speaker is here to add a soundtrack to your tailgating party, boating expedition or camping adventure. This Bluetooth-capable speaker is rugged, waterproof and ready to deliver up to 10 hours of continuous play. 

Yes, we said "rugged and waterproof." Bushnell achieves this by coating the speaker in its rubber EXO Armor, which is the same material technology the company uses to protect its world-class glass. This protects the speaker from bumps and bruises, while its waterproof design shields it from rain and other moisture on land or water.

Sure, there are other portable speakers on the market, but Bushnell's is unique for more than just its EXO armor. Equipped with a Bite magnet on the back for metal surfaces, as well as Bite strap, D-ring loop and tripod mount, the Outdoorsman can be mounted just about anywhere, from a 4-wheeler or boat to a tree trunk or fencepost.

With 10 hours of battery life, the Outdoorsman can outlast an all-day party. An integrated charge port allows you to use the speaker as an external battery pack to recharge your phone, and it packs enough power to recharge most phones two or three times when fully charged.

For users who want more audio power, the Outdoorsman comes with TWS (True Wireless Stereo) mode, which allows the speaker to be paired with another Outdoorsman speaker for left and right stereo sound. 

The Bushnell Outdoorsman includes the Bite strap, a micro-USB charging cable and an additional black EXO Armor. This black protective sleeve can be swapped with the included camo EXO Armor. MSRP $119.99; bushnell.com
