Nike C.O.R.E. Backpack
Nike today extended its range of iPod-supporting equipment beyond the Nike+iPod running kit by offering the C.O.R.E. Backpack ID, a customizable bag made for students and other frequent travelers who often bring music in tow. A pocket in the strap connects to any dockable iPod, integrating the Apple music player with basic track navigation and volume controls on the strap itself, letting owners change music without removing the iPod from a safe location. The backpack provides an additional pouch for earbuds, a padded laptop division in the main bag, and a front organizer to keep smaller items separate. Pricing begins at $105 for the bag when customized with iPod controls and varies depending on personalization options.
