Koyono has announced three new Spring and Summer jackets with integrated iPod controls. The new BlackCoat Sport ($225) is a button-up jacket made of waterproof nylon. It offers full iPod control and has five pockets. The BlackCoat Sport Surf Edition ($170; shown) is a short-sleeve hybrid shirt/jacket made of a breathable stretch cotton material with water repellant technology. It has several pockets, iPod connectivity, and “gives you a place to stow belongings you would otherwise have to drop in a bag or dangle off of you somehow.” The BlackCoat Work ($190) is a stretch cotton version of Koyono’s original jacket. Like the others, it has built-in iPod controls, and features a classic cut, waterproof coating and five pockets.

Just cause a shirt or coat has a place to put an ipod in doesnt make it cool in ANY way. They look ugly anways.

These prices are crazy… all they offer is a few buttons it’s not as if any serious outdoors coat doesn’t have a mp3 player pocket these days.

I’ve got one of their AirGo jackets - it’s a well made and thought through jacket. Very light and looks good. Not sure though if I’d need to get one of these new ones with the built in controls, but their stuff looks better in real life!
