For sailors who believe that time spent on the water is even better with a soundtrack, Outdoor Technology’s new Turtle Shell Bluetooth speaker will make the perfect sailing companion.

Although durable, good-looking, comfortable and functional, Atlantis Weathergear’s Shipyard shorts have always had a serious flaw: they were only available in men’s sizes! Fortunately, the company has since made good and begun marketing the same quick-drying pants, which come complete with a zippered pocket and integrated multi-tool sheath, in women’s sizes as well.
