Quiksilver Bluetooth Wear

Snow sports clothier Quiksilver and Plantronics today launched a set of jackets and helmets that pair wirelessly with most audio-capable Bluetooth devices. Using either a built-in Bluetooth transmitter or an adapter for players such as the iPod, the clothing lets owners control and listen to calls or music in stereo without having to first plug the source into a specific pocket.

The snowwear range is split equally along styles for men and women, according to Plantronics: the Double Daffy jacket and Pulse helmet (both shown) use subdued, camouflage tones for men, while the Roxy Teen Angel top and Roxy Shiver helmet will have more feminine colors for women. All four pieces of outerwear are set to reach stores as part of the 2007-2008 Quiksilver line later this year.
