Kenpo iPod Jackets
Los Angeles' clothing designer Kenpo has just introduced 15 new iPod jackets that it says target virtually every need. The expanded Kenpo Jacket line ranges from light windbreakers to heavier bubble and snowboarding jackets for both men and women. All the new models use ElekTex' smart fabric to provide five navigation buttons on the left sleeve that pause and skip tracks for the iPod, which is hidden in a specially-padded inside pocket. The design can be machine-washed and doesn't require any batteries to run, Kenpo says. Jackets vary in price between $89 and $189 depending on the style and will be available soon at clothing stores such as JC Penney and Nordstrom's.
