Extreme sports used to be the refuge from the relentless world of people with wild spirits until now. However, recently, this field of activity seems to have become more and more gadget-crowded, with pieces of equipment transforming into cell phones, cameras and portable media players.
If so far snowboarding and skiing were solitary and somewhat meditative activities, thanks to heavy names in the industry of winter sports gear, athletes can now benefit from high-tech equipment, which can either provide them entertainment or increased features, to make their activity easier than ever before, not to mention more pleasurable.
Westcomb is one of the many companies that has entered the interactive apparel market segment, with its iRebel iPod compatible fleece jacket, which will keep you warm and give you a very cool look, at the same time.
The iRebel Fleece Jacket’s comfy, relaxed fit and four-way stretch fabric allows you plenty of mobility whether you’re floating through fresh powder on the ski hill, or trying to get across campus with an armful of books. To enjoy its entertainment-related features, all you have to do is plug you iPod into the media pocket and select your tunes using the soft buttons built into the sleeve. This way, you will stay warm as you charge out into the world with this wind- and water-resistant hoody.
Thanks to the Polartec WindPro fabric inside the iRebel, you won't have to worry about getting wet or wind whipping your body, as the jacket is both waterproof and windproof. Eleksen’s technology gives control over your iPod and the tunes you need to keep moving, anywhere and everywhere. This means you do not have to take out and put back your iPod just for changing a song or the volume.
Available in Black, Sequoia, Blush and Molten, the iRebel can be purchased within the 165 – 235 US dollars.
