Support Jack’s Jiants at JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes with Outdoor Tech®

Support Jack’s Jiants at JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes with Outdoor Tech®

Los Angeles, CA (November 4, 2014) – Even though Jack has had Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) for 3 years, he looks like a normal 5-year-old boy on the outside. He is adorable, silly, spastic and into everything. But what’s really going on in his life is anything but normal. His reality includes pokes, prods, sight infections, hospital stays, missed play dates, tears and emotional turmoil that no child should ever have to endure. It has been a life changer for the entire family, including Jack’s twin sister who does not have T1D.

That’s where JDRF comes in as the leading global organization funding T1D research. With JDRF Walks to Cure Diabetes taking place across the nation, coming up on November 9, 2014 is the JDRF Walk at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA in which Jack’s team “Jack’s Jiants” will be walking for the 4th year in a row. They are the largest walk team for this location, as well as the highest fundraising team. Jack’s mother Danielle LaBriola says, “Jack has told me on numerous occasions that one of the ONLY good things about having diabetes is the walk. He feels the support and actually feels like a hero for a day.”

In support of Jack’s Jiants, Outdoor Tech® has created a special t-shirt for adults that is available for purchase here for $24.00. 100% of all profits from this shirt will be donated to Jack’s JDRF Fund. In addition, Outdoor Tech® partner Rob Caulfield was personally moved by Jack’s story and has committed to match the first $5000 in contributions to support such a great cause. If you prefer to simply donate to Jack’s team and/or join the walk in Anaheim with him, please click here. By doing any of these things, you are directly helping Jack and the millions of other kids who are struggling every day to live their lives with this disease. These donations are so important because without funding there simply will be no cure.

Outdoor Tech® Extends Helmet Audio Stronghold with Wired CHIPS®

Los Angeles, CA (November 4, 2014) – Outdoor Tech® forever changed the course of on-snow audio with its highly acclaimed Bluetooth wireless CHIPS® that add a new dimension of sound, simplicity and convenience to helmets. New this season, Outdoor Tech® spreads the love to Bluetooth-averse or budget conscious skiers and snowboarders with universal Wired CHIPS® ($39.95) that offer the same premium sound quality and glove-friendly functionality, but in a wired version that directly connects to smart phones and audio devices.

Similar to the wireless CHIPS®, drop the Wired CHIPS® into nearly any helmet with an audio-ready liner and give your runs down the mountain the soundtrack they deserve. There’s no battery, so the Wired CHIPS® will keep piping out sound for as long as you (or your device) can last. The patented control interface changes tracks, plays/pauses music, takes calls and activates voice command with just one glove-friendly button, meaning no fishing the phone from your jacket or fumbling for tiny buttons – super simple. Complete with a built-in microphone and IPX4 sweat and water-resistant rating, these are tested to work perfectly down to -20°C/-4°F (no more frozen button syndrome).

Founded in 2010, Outdoor Tech® is an outdoor designer brand creating accessories for an action-filled lifestyle. Packing the world’s most complete line of Bluetooth audio built for reveling in the open air and on the road, Outdoor Tech® proves there is a way to stay connected but not tethered.

The new Wired CHIPS® are now available at REI, Sports Authority, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sport Chalet, Christy Sports, Burton Flagships, and a whole bunch of local ski and board shops. For more on Outdoor Tech® and the rest of its line including rugged portable power and the potentially iconic Yowie® Logo apparel collection go to OutdoorTechnology.com.

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 27, 2014) – Inc. Magazine in its September issue has recognized Los Angeles-based Outdoor Tech® as one of America’s fastest growing privately-held companies. The Inc. 500 ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period. Outdoor Tech ranked no. 329 on the list based on its 1,418.7% growth rate over the qualifying time period.

Brand new standouts for 2014 are the shockproof, dustproof and highly water-resistant Big Turtle Shell wireless boombox that’s made for adventurous life on the go; the sleek and powerful Orcas wireless earbuds that are ideal for any workout, both inside and out; and the most recent fully-waterproof Kodiak portable power bank as Outdoor Tech® expands into a new category of non-audio products.

The Big Turtle Shell: #KINGOFTHEBEACH

As an up and coming lifestyle accessory brand, good PR is worth its weight in gold. Here at Outdoor Tech we have been lucky enough to be well liked by the press, we make Stuff You Probably Want® and it looks really good in photographs, so why not. We also have a great PR Team and that doesn’t hurt.

The Big Turtle Shell is our marquee product of the year and while we thought it was far and away the best Bluetooth Speaker on the market based on internal testing and market research, well, we have a little bit of a biased view. So when Maxim Magazine declared it “The King of the Beach” we couldn’t have been more stoked. I am happy to report the Big Turtle Shell is flying off the shelf and online (we are having a hard time keeping it in stock) and the reviews from our customers are in line with Maxim’s opinion and our own. If you want gray it is available only at Apple.

Thanks Maxim for the rad write up and photo and for being the premier men’s interest pub out there, I can tell you, here at ODT, we DON’T just buy it for the articles.

We love you, just remember that.

The Big Turtle Shell in Mens Journal

What does the Big Turtle Shell Bluetooth speaker, a canoe, a hammock, a roll up blanket, a fetch toy, and some slip-free shoes have in common? Besides the fact that all of that stuff is totally rad and I want them, they are all in the August 2014 issue of Men’s Journal.

If you dont believe me, check out these terrible quality scans from the mag. We may have used a potato to scan these. Probably just more of a reason to go pick up the magazine and subscribe while you are at it.

Maxim calls the Big Turtle Shell The King of the Beach

It looks like Maxim got their hands on a Big Turtle Shell wireless speaker and liked it. No actually they loved it. In fact, they loved it so much they decided to dub it the “King of the Beach” in their July/August 2014 issue.

Obviously, this is rad. Make sure you #KingOfTheBeach whenever you are partying with the Big Turtle Shell at the beach, river, lake, or wherever else you may be.

Buckshot Wireless Speaker in Travel and Leisure June 2014

Go find the June 2014 issue of Travel and Leisure to check out the Buckshot wireless speaker. You should also have a look at all the other gear in the issue too, so rad. If you can’t find the mag go to their website, they have a lot of travel guides and travel information and you can probably get the issue there or something.

It looks like Amy thinks that the Buckshot is rad, “The best adventure equipment takes the marriage of form and function to another level”. Thanks Amy!
