Gear Guide: Burton Shield iPod Jacket

The new Burton Shield Jacket with an integrated iPod� system is perfect for riders who love music as much as they love two feet of fresh. The limited edition Shield Jacket features Burton�s revolutionary iPod control system and an updated, flexible SOFTswitch� control pad located on the sleeve to control the most recent edition of the Apple� 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, two-layer waterproof fabric, the Burton Shield jacket is machine washable when the iPod interface module is removed. Designed for performance in all terrains and conditions, the Shield is your friend whether you�re ripping inbounds or ducking a rope.

In other words, it keeps the bad shit out. For riders wanting fully loaded performance, there is no other choice.
