Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Solid, no major complaints. My buddy got the Turtle speaker, by a company i never heard of, Outdoor technology, same concept, rugged speaker for camping. he claims it is more waterproof and we tested them side by side for sound and the Turtle sounded a little better, more bass, kinda like the look better too, less brick like. anyway, i like the braven, easy to use, like the rubber coating, loud and good sound, and see it is now 149 rather than the 179 i bought for, but i have decided to return it now that i see others that i may like better and i am within the return window.
