The Good The Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket lets you control your iPod wirelessly while snowboarding or skiing.

The Bad The Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket only works with iPods and is not cheap.

The Bottom Line The Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket is one of the most stylish and manageable ways to listen to your iPod while snowboarding or skiing.

Editors' Top Picks

The Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket ($379) is a high-end snowsport jacket with an integrated iPod remote control. If you've ever taken a spill and watched your snowboard and MP3 player shoot off in different directions, then the Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket is worth more than a passing glance.

Like most Burton products, the Burton Audex iPod Field Jacket has a very hip design, constructed with materials that are both high-tech and high-style. The jacket employs taped seams, laminated fabric, and resizable fittings to keep moisture from finding its way through to your clothing. Zippered pockets can be found practically everywhere, in sizes large enough to stash away a pair of snow gloves, or snug enough for a pair of earbuds. An interior pocket is built into the field jacket specifically to cradle your iPod. With your iPod tucked away, earbuds can then be threaded through a small port within the jacket's lining and up to the ears.
