As a rule, rugged is a byword for butt ugly with gadgets. The new Pure Oasis, though, manages to combine weatherproof and splashproof capabilities without making you want to immediately throw a blanket over it. Not only is the Oasis a refreshing break from Pure's admittedly lovely wooden Evoke kitchen radios, but it trumps other outdoor efforts like Roberts' R9965 for design while offering DAB clarity. It's rechargeable ChargePAK battery will give you 15 hours of listening, and there's also a line-in for connection to your jukebox, making it ideal for park listening in whatever's left of our British summer. The Oasis will be available from September this year, and will cost £120. To bag yours, check out www.pure.com or call 01923 277488.
