Nike intros iPod-ready Hatphones Cap


Nike is offering a new cold weather cap designed to hold and control an iPod nano. “Move, groove, and stay warm in the Nike Men’s Soft Shell Therma-FIT Hatphones Cap,” says the company. “This cozy, comfortable skullcap features full functional Nano click wheel controls through a power mesh window in back so you can keep moving while mixing up your music.” It’s unclear whether the cap will hold a nano with a Nike+iPod Sport Kit adapter attached. The Nike Hatphones Cap sells for $60 and is available in black, grey, blue and red.

Whoa!  Sixty bucks for a skullcap?  Plus, I’m not sure I want to look any more like a geek by having a Nano along with the attendant white wires dangling from the back of my head and routing back up to my ears.  Kinda weird…and, did I mention it costs $60 bucks!

The $60 has to be a misprint; even $30 seems high for this.

For $15 I might consider it if you can use the nano w/ the Nike+iPod receiver…

I saw it a Macy’s a couple of weeks ago for 40% off.

And caps are easy to steal—iPod in cap would be an enticer!

It is $60 MSRP.  My wife got me one for >50% off at Sports Authority here in the Puget Sound area before Christmas last year.  It does fit a nano with sports kit adaptor since it fits into the cap upside down.

Ahh, this looks just like the Nike hat I’ve had for at least 2 or 3 months now. It’s awesome. Has built in headphone what sound great, and of coarse holds the nano with the Nike+ kit in it.

This is great! I’ve been selling the exact same item since 2002, and even appeared on QVC with it in Jan. 2005. (

My company is called Hearmuff Inc., and you’d better believe this will help in my marketing efforts! My price point is much better, and my hats are more stylish.
Thanks, Nike!
