When you’re out jogging, hiking, or biking, there’s a good chance you’re going to want to listen to some music. Not that any of those activities aren’t fun, but it’s easier to do a longer workout when you’re not as focused on the physical strain you’re experiencing. The only bad thing that comes with having earbuds in is that you aren’t as aware of your surroundings.
The sound of a car that just came buzzing down the road might not make it to your ears if you’re jamming out and in the “zone”. One solution to this dilemma is getting the Sonic Walk. This is a sort of reverse backpack in which the straps hold your valuables. There are speakers that fit inside of the two neoprene/spandex straps, and an additional pocket will hold your MP3 player or smartphone. It’s very lightweight at only 240g (about a half a pound), and costs about $100.
