If you suffer from separation anxiety when your iPod� is not by your side, then the new Ronin 2L is the jacket you need. Featuring a revolutionary iPod control system created by SOFTswitch�, the Ronin 2L combines top of the line outerwear features and space age sound tech to satisfy any MP3/snowboard junkie. The jacket has an updated, flexible control pad located on the sleeve to control the most recent edition of Apple�s iPod. Simply press a button on your sleeve and poof � the song changes - it�s like magic. The iPod itself is stored safely in a specially designed, EVA molded chest pocket. Constructed with highly breathable, waterproof, two-layer fabric, the Ronin 2L is machine washable when the iPod interface module is removed. An innovative Crossflow venting system lets air flow from the front of the jacket to the back arm vents for instant cooling while hiking or resting. Unique storage solutions include the double entry side pockets with handwarmer pocket access, angled field jacket chest pockets and of course, the special iPod chest pocket. And sorry, you�ll have to supply your own iPod.
