This is easily the best accessory for the iPod for active people. I've used it every time I've gone riding and I'm continually amazed at how convenient its features are. No more having to remove gloves or headphones every time you're in a lift line or asking your riding buddies which run you'll be doing next. Plus tons of room for extra gloves, goggles, and spare layers of clothes. The pack itself has an impressive amount of space too. I can fit a change of clothes (jeans, hoody, fresh sox, and t-shirt) for after work activities. Backcountry also had the best price anywhere!!
