I have been lusting over the Burton iPod jacket since it was announced. I could never justify putting that much cash down for a jacket, but it seems like im finally gonna bite the bullet and pick one up as soon as I get my next paycheck.
I work in apparel and oddly enough, I have a relationship with the BURTON rep. I'm actually going to call him today (ironically) as I have to speak with him about someything else as well. I'll try to get get some details on my end re: that piece.
I saw the jkt previously, as I do believe that they made earlier gens, but there is obvious new frenzy!
The co that i work for actually have similar jkts (we're currently out of stock in warehouse ), but likey not as detailed, and not actually to riding spex. but many of our fleece/sweats have some media pocket type fearures. Here's one of the jkts:
Audio Jkt. You will see a pocket near the heart, and we have a grommet to send your earphone wire thru, with a neoprene backing to keep precipitation out the pouch. We have a down winter coat with the same feature (I'm wearing mine currently).
I'm sure that ours if a fraction of the $$ of Burton's , but we do not have that forearm remote. - which is ultimately the kicker.
Just got back from showing off the Burton iPod Jacket thing to some friends! I got to CPUsed around 7:30 pm and picked up the LAST jacket. Turns out they only got 7 jackets, which is a lot since the allocation for Canada was supposedly 10 jackets.
They'll be getting in Burton iPod backpacks soon, so if you missed out on the jackets be sure to grab a backpack before they are all gone.
