not a very nice style, i’d get one if it was a london fog trench coat though. i love those coats. i personally have 2 myself, and if ipod ready technology was in it i’d wear it all day.

I love my iPod, and have bought a lot of accesories for it, but NEVER in a 1,000 years…

Come on, your iPod is not like a kid or something! i think now, thier getting “a little bit carried away”. I have ne question though, who all here remembers those out of date walk mans?

Never mind the flaky iPod tie-in…250 clams for a nylon shell…180 for a cotton version.

I’ll NEVER say anything bad about Helly Hansen’s or The North Face’s pricing EVER AGAIN (well, at least until I forget about these POS offerings).

saad (Your name or state of mind?),
I saw the cotton version of the “Work” jacket at MWSF and it was light enough to wear during the cooler days of summer - if you feel the need. Not everywhere has 30 days of sun every month during the summer….

As other iLounge Staff will testify to, I love my Koyono BlackCoat T shirts. If the coats are as high quality as the shirts are then maybe the price is worth paying? I guess you’ll be stating that I’m sad as well for thinking that?

You’ll probably be more than happy to fork out a weeks wages on the latest Nike shoes or other fashion-statement-must-have, which everyone is wearing, but when something which doesn’t involve dressing your iPod up comes along it is derided….

what happens when it rains or you spill food on it???

You know, I really wouldn’t mind a summer T-shirt or something cool to wear out on the trail this summer that worked with my shuffle, it’s just these stupid prices that make these items a laughing stock.

It is made from “Waterproof, breathable Nextec® Flathead nylon with Epic® waterproofing technology” so rain is not a problem. But if you suffer from food spillage perhaps you need to invest in a bib…...

Actually, when the Koyono coats are compared to other coats with compartments designed for tech (like the ones worn by plainclothes police and the Secret Service), the price is competitive.
