Some of you wondered if the tan lined water skier really spent his summer vacation water skiing or doing something else. Maybe you entertained the possibility that he was wearing one of these Soundwalk MP3 Player Audio Vests during his summer activities. (It sure does look like it!)

This might be one of those function over fashion devices since it's not the most glamorous accessory but it is a smart idea. The vest acts as a mount-base for your MP3 player and cell phone so you remain wireless and your hands and ears are kept free for safety precautions. I always roller-blade with my iPod blaring in my ears, so maybe I should invest in one of these $70 vests to stay safe rather than sorry!
