      My Favorite Little Mexicans

      Gear Review – Outdoor Tech (ODT) Los Cabos

      I’m not sure why I called them that, to be honest… I struggle with the name I normally add in an Afrikaans twang rather than a Mexican one like the name is meant to be pronounced.

      Name aside, these headphones are bad-ass. They are literally like the tougher, sportier cousin of the Tuis.

      Lets get to it. The Los Cabos are Outdoor Tech’s latest answer to the ‘over head’ headphone war. Not that there is much of a war? How many sporty sets of over the head headphone are there? The Tuis was an awesome pair of headphones and I enjoyed using them for my travels and as my pre sport/job hype machines. I never thought there was much wrong with the Tuis and for ODT to come out and better them was a real surprise.










      So how have they done it?

      Lets start by talking about what’s the same.

      Both Models have:

      • Amazing sound,
      • Leather ear phone
      • Fit really well,
      • Have a sophisticated and strong build,
      • Come in flashy boxes,
      • Look sick,
      • Side mounted tactile Bluetooth controls.


      So what’s different and why are the Los Cabos better?


      They feature:

      • A lighter build,
      • A better squeeze on the head
      • Sweat resistance!


      The biggest pro in favour of the Los Cabos is the sweat resistant feature make sure you can use these for just about anything; from Gym to the skate park – Jean-Marc Johannes.

      Over all I think these are better for any adventure compared to what is out there in the market. After all, ODT has actually taken the time to make them for sporty people.

      Lonely, Quiet Rides No More

      So too often when you training for cycling races or you just want to get out in the wilderness for a quick ride, you sometimes feel like it could do with some music right? No? Well, sometimes I feel like that, and that’s what I enjoyed a lot about the Buckshot Pro.


      A speaker that isn’t just a speaker is crucial these days when it comes to portable speakers. The Buckshot Pro definitely meets this requirement. Not only can you play cool tunes wirelessly, but it’s also a rugged little device that you can attach to your bike, maybe on the neck under your seat, on the handle bars or even where your water bottle goes and the advantage of this is where you go, the music goes. And because it’s rubberized and waterproof it’s quite durable and resilient.

      Besides being waterproof and rugged, it’s other capabilities include being able to plug a USB cable in to charge another device like your phone if you running low on a ride and you want to keep your phone charged for an emergency or to carry on playing tunes. Also, and this is super handy, and helped me on a evening training on the bike, it comes with a detachable LED light. Don’t expect the light to be able to light up the road and shine your path ahead of you, but what I do like about it, is it creates more visibility for you as a rider when you are riding on the road so that motorists and other cyclists are aware of you.

      To be brutally honest, don’t expect as mind blowing sound to come from this little speaker, it is after all exactly that… a small speaker. But if you’re looking for a little device to keep you entertained along cycles, or even hikes which I used it for as well.

      The Buckshot Pro is definitely something you can keep with you, without worrying about it getting damaged or fused from water damage… unless you fall off a hiking trail into a river gouge below, which in that case, the Buckshot would be the least of your worries.
