Are you someone who needs some Bach or Black Sabbath to round out that perfect wilderness experience? High Gear has just what you need! The Trail Audio 512 is a solid state MP3 player and an FM radio—all in a compact 3.5 oz, carabineer clip package with up to 17 hours of play on a single AAA battery.

We may risk revocation of our Sierra Club membership for such an indulgence but we can’t resist. We’re on the fast track to get one of the first units to try out.
