Burton Snowboards and Apple today announced the limited-edition Burton Amp, the “world’s first and only wearable electronic jacket with an integrated iPod control system.” The Burton Amp is a durable waterproof GORE-TEX snowboarding jacket made exclusively for use with the iPod that makes it “effortless for snowboarders and other active users to control their music from right on the sleeve of their jacket without fumbling with zippers, gloves or pockets.” The limited edition Burton Amp jackets will be available exclusively online through the Apple Store for US$499. Samples of the Burton Amp jackets can be seen at all of Apple’s retail stores. In late January, the Burton Amp jackets will also be available at select Burton dealers. The iPod is sold separately.
