Outdoor Tech's Buckshot
This is perhaps the toughest Bluetooth device I've ever had my hands on -- and that's saying a lot since I've run over both a Jawbone and a Jabra headset with my truck and then dug them out of the dirt, stuck them back in my ear, and found that the Katy Perry tunes pouring forth from them hadn't missed a beat.
The bike-handlebar-shaped Buckshot also comes with a handlebar mount so you can jam out while hitting the trail on your mountain bike. It's also water resistant and shockproof, should you fail to use that handlebar mount properly. I haven't really found a bike trail near my home where the notion of blasting pop tunes doesn't seem totally obnoxious, but the added speakerphone kind of makes sense if you really need to take a business call while ripping up some single track.
The best feature here though again is the price -- it can easily be found for less than $50, a steal for this kind of ruggedized gear.
