Outdoor Tech® Featured on Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies List

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.

Founded in 2010, Outdoor Tech® is an outdoor designer brand that makes rugged Bluetooth audio accessories built for reveling in the open air. As the creator of the industry leading and first-ever universal, fully wireless audio CHIPS for ski and snowboard helmets, the company has proven there is a way to stay connected but not tethered to modern technology during active lifestyle pursuits. 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.

“Outdoor Tech has quickly been accepted by a growing population of consumers who want to incorporate music and connectivity to their devices while pursuing their favorite outdoor activities whether it’s skiing and snowboarding or bike commuting and paddling,” says Caro Krissman, Outdoor Tech founder and CEO. “The quality and durability of the products resonate with an audience that spans from pro action sports athletes to backyard gardeners and business travelers. The broad appeal of the brand and the lifestyle it represents has helped us rapidly grow in a number of markets.”

Outdoor Tech® anticipates maintaining its rapid growth trend through an expanded international distribution strategy in Canada, Mexico and throughout Europe, as well as deepening relationships with retailers such as REI, Apple, Nordstrom, Dick’s Sporting Goods, The Sports Authority, West Marine, Eastern Mountain Sports, Burton Flagship Stores, FGL Sports, Tilly’s, Quiksilver and more.

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.

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.

Those Australians sure know how to party, trust us. They also know some badass stuff you probably want too. That’s why they have the Turtle Shell 2.0 Bluetooth speaker in issue 312 of their magazine; Surfing Life.

When you read the article, you might end up questioning the authors sanity or maybe even your own. That’s okay, we are cool with that.

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!
