The iPod-Controlling Jacket gives new meaning to "having a trick up your sleeve," and for once, is a gadget garment that's nice enough you can wear it and not feel like a geek.


It's a fleece-lined, wind and water resistant jacket that has an interior iPod pocket that protects your iPod from inclement weather, while a five button control system woven into the outer sleeve provides play, pause, volume, and track forward/backward control without having to open the jacket (watch product demo).

To ensure that accidental bumps will not send unintended signals to the iPod during playback, the sleeve control panel locks after seven seconds of inaction and can be reactivated by holding the forward button for three seconds.

The interior breast pocket secures the iPod and a 30-pin dock connector and earphones are fed through the lining of the jacket collar, which ensures your earphones won't fall inside the jacket when removed from your ears. It's compatible with all iPod and iPod mini models. Machine wash and dry when connectors are removed. No batteries required. Get your own iPod Controlling Jacket for $149.95.
