Simply Share our most recent Kickstarter Post from our Facebook Page/Twitter/Instagram, and we'll tally up who has shared/retweeted/reposted at the close of the campaign!

Last year we launched what might just be the most durable solution in portable power ever created. We called it the SOS20K. It has survived helicopter drops from 10,000 ft, fast moving rivers, throws from 3-story buildings, 1/2 mile off-road drags, and shots out of a pneumatic cannon. Now we're bringing that life-saving durability and power to a new device - 

The MacroBoom. 

These highly portable, solar charging, IP67 water/dustproof, shockproof, daisy-chaining, bike/surf/sky-mountable bluetooth speakers take rugged sound to a whole new level: one that will impress adventurers & audiophiles alike. 

Speakers of comparable audio quality cost upwards of $200-$300; others sacrifice audio quality in the pursuit of solar power/durability. We'd like to thank you for helping bring the MacroBoom to life, by offering it here for nearly half the price of some of our competitors, with the promise that we haven't compromised or cut corners. Starting at only $125.

  • Stainless Steel & TPU Double-Shot Injection Molded Body

The above video is proof of concept only, at 50% volume, recorded using a smart phone. While there's no way to provide a true example of the MarcroBoom's audio quality here, we can show you that it works.

Risks and challenges

We've done this before - and you probably have too! Many of you have probably even pledged for RoamProof products on Kickstarter, received them, and are happily pledging for another. Because of our experience, the risks have been minimized to timeline only - Delays happen. We've tried to predict perfectly our timeline so that you know exactly what to expect when you pledge with us. We absolutely will not compromise on quality, and will do everything in our power to deliver on time.
