As you may know, some Dads like a little adventure in their lives. The great outdoors is their playground and they are not afraid of getting dirty, wet, or both at the same time. All this adventure time needs a soundtrack, and one way to bring that soundtrack along is with one of those handy-dandy Bluetooth speakers. That’s why you need to know about the rough and tumble Fugoo Tough.

Take everything you know about Bluetooth speakers and toss it out the window. The Fugoo Tough is not dainty, precious, or delicate. In fact, it is the exact opposite.

That seems like a long list of features because it is. The Fugoo has so much to offer that it looks like it could be the best Bluetooth speaker on the market today. The fact that it lives inside a fiber-reinforced resin and solid aluminum protective cage, certainly means that it could be the toughest. Of course, you just have to wait for the full review to find out.
