iPod garments ship in May

Koyono is due to begin shipping some of its "made for iPod" garments in May, which feature washable fabric control with built-in access to iPod functionality. The fabric interfaces that enable embedded controls are made from ElekTex -- a unique five-layer laminate of electrically conductive materials that transforms fabric into an electronic touchpad. The BlackCoat Sport is a hybrid sport coat/jacket/overcoat designed to weather the elements, and is expected to ship on May 2nd for $225. Koyono's BlackCoat Surf Edition is a short sleeve shirt/jacket that offers the benefits of outerwear with a shape and weight that can be worn throughout the summer, and is due to ship on May 20th for $170. The company also plans to ship its BlackCoat Work (shown at right) hybrid jean jacket/sport coat on May 2nd for $250, made from either Nextec nylon or stretch cotton with encapsulated fiber waterproofing.
