JanSport's iPod backpack

MP3 players

Getting out and about doing some hiking might be a great way to keep fit, but it’s also a great way to spend time getting re-acquainted with some music or to catch up with that latest podcast. If you want to take your music with you, this AudioPack backpack could make life easier.

Developed by JanSport in association with Apple, the AudioPack incorporates JanSports LiveWire audio system, which allows you to listen to your iPod on the move via an integrated remote control system built into the strap of the backpack. LiveWire is compatible with third generation iPods as well as other CD and MP3 players.

The remote control keypad and earphone cord management system are positioned within the AudioPack’s right shoulder strap. The keypad is simple to use and gives users five-button control of iPod features – volume, forward, reverse, pause, and play, with the added bonus of Power-off if you want to save on battery life. Your player is held securely in place via JanSport’s "V-Loft pocket".

And of course, it’s a backpack, which features JanSport’s "AirLift" suspension system – a shock absorbing gel that redistributes pack weight evenly across the shoulders for better comfort and delivers a fifty per cent reduction in carrying pressure.

The AudioPack is available in Black, Snare Drum Grey or Blue Bunny from luggage and outdoor retailers.
