The blue cables accent the black exterior perfectly and create a great looking charger. Olympia SB5500

when we look at a speaker, our standards are pretty high. The sound quality has to be great and it better be easy to use.

Over the years, through trial and error, we have become somewhat of experts at enjoying libations at a campsite. We know, we have a tough job but someone has to do it. From these experiences, we have come to the conclusion that beer just tastes better out of a pint glass. The feel, the aroma you get, it all comes together and forms this sensory experience. Enter the Hydro Flask True Pint. It combines their cooling technology with the feel of a traditional pint glass. We’ve enjoyed a few cold beers out of it, for “testing” purposes.
