Kenpo, 15 iPod jackets
Kenpo has unveiled 15 new iPod jackets designed to target virtually every user need. The expanded Kenpo Jacket line ranges from light windbreakers to heavier bubble and snowboarding jackets for men as well as 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 pocket, according to Electronista. The design is machine-washable, and doesn't require any batteries to run. Jackets are priced between $90 and $200 depending on style, and are scheduled for shipment to clothing stores such as JC Penney and Nordstrom's in the near future.
