We get a lot of audio products for review around here (many of them very similar) but the Baserock backpack is something very unique. We haven’t had any hands-on time with the backpack but the idea alone is pretty impressive. Essentially, the Baserock collects bass frequencies from live music and pushes them through your body allowing you to feel more immersed in the event. Baserock even thought of those long outdoor festival concerts where you may need to drink a lot of water. They built a hydration reservoir that holds 2L of water so you can keep your body hydrated.
The Baserock still serves as a regular backpack that you can haul your goodies around in but make no mistake, this thing is targeted at frequent concert goers. You can also hook a speaker up to the Baserock or even a pair of headphones to enhance your mobile bass experience. We’ve reached out to the company for a review unit to see how well this thing works. If it works as advertised, I think the Baserock would be an essential tool for concert goers to take their experience to the next level.
Baserock is going to Kickstart this product soon, in the meantime, you can hit the link at the end of this article to get a special offer from the company at their Kickstarter launch.

Designed for Music Lovers, the Hydration Backpack is Set to Disrupt the Music Festival Experience
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Baserock, Inc. announces, the Baserock, a versatile hydration backpack that allows users to physically feel music by vibrating bass frequencies throughout the body.

The $15,000 Kickstarter campaign will be used to fund Baserock’s initial run of manufacturing, offering music enthusiasts and adventurers the opportunity to be the first to receive the first bass-frequency backpack at a discounted price.
“We designed the Baserock Backpack to optimize our physical experience of bass frequencies at music festivals,” said Jared Becker, Baserock Co-Founder and CEO. “We’ve been encouraged by the feedback we’ve received from our early testers who found many ways to use the product – on hikes, at work, on the slopes, walking downtown, mountain biking, you name it.”
The state-of-the-art backpack is equipped with a microphone input for use at a live show, as well as an auxiliary input, so it can be used with a phone/computer and headphones/speakers. It runs on an eight-hour rechargeable battery and has an easily accessible user interface on the shoulder strap of the backpack.
Baserock is designed for the active lifestyle, complete with a 2-Liter hydration reservoir, two large storage pockets and five secure zipper pockets organized in a compact 19-inch water resistant backpack. Baserock is ready for a three-day music festival, shredding some powder on the slopes, a trek across town, and everything in between.
