iXoundWear has announced plans to release new caps designed specifically for the third-generation iPod nano. Both the iXoundWear Sport Cap and Running Cap will feature an internal sweatband, coated fabric player pocket, a top flap to secure the iPod in place and protect the screen, a clear control window to access the Click Wheel, and an adjustable pocket for wire management. In addition, each cap will include 2 bendable polyurethane plastic spools to wrap wire. “We are very excited about the new iPod Nano 3rd generation and our design team has been working hard to make our caps compatible,” said Karl Faust, iXoundWear CEO. The iXoundWear Sport Cap and Running Cap for third-generation iPod nano will both be available in November and will sell for $20; iXoundWear’s current hats, visors and beanies for iPod are now being offered at $16 each.

Ehm, it seems they forgot a slit so the Nike+ kit can fit the pocket.  Unless they don’t want to address that market?

They forgot to add a pouch for the wallet, cell phone, and car keys. I mean, that way criminals could steal ALL your stuff without a problem.

I have one of these caps for Nano 2G and I can say that it works great when I exercise, keeping wires out of the way. For what regards concerns such as getting the iPod stolen ... well I would not wear it in a crowded subway, but at the gym or for running at the park ... never had any problem.

Something tells me this won’t sell.

And by “something,” I mean “common sense, decency, style, and the general desire to not look like a total gimp.”
