No � it can�t make you fly, land a 720 or help you disappear when the music pirate police start banging on your door, but it does let you switch songs on your iPod� just by pressing a button on the shoulder strap. Introducing the first backpack in the world that not only carries your iPod but controls it too. The Burton Amp Pack integrates an iPod control system using SOFTswitch� technology, which allows the iPod to be controlled through a soft, flexible control pad built into the pack�s shoulder strap. Constructed with super durable ballistic nylon, the Amp Pack features a secure iPod storage pocket, a headphone port located on the shoulder strap, an easy-access side entry laptop compartment and padded ergonomic shoulder straps for ultimate comfort. Whether you�re running to catch a flight, riding the subway or lugging your #### into the lodge, the Amp Pack makes it super simple to flip through your illegally downloaded music library.

    Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
