iRebel Jacket

Men’s iRebel Hoody

Hiking Geeks get ready, for an iPod compatible jacket that actually works. But before we get to the technological-stupendousness lets talk about the jacket itself.

Equipped with Polartec Wind Pro, and winner of The Polartec Apex award for best use of Polartec fabrics. This über comfortable hoody is great for hanging around the house, walking downtown and of course hiking on the trail. The thumb loops on the sleeves add functionality and style to the hoody. The iRebel is cut superbly and can be worn by itself or underneath another jacket.

iPod Close Up

Now for the techno-side of this little piece of heaven. As shown in the photo, the iRebel has two pockets inside the left front of the hoody. One holds the Westcomb interface and the other your iPod. {This jacket was tested with a 3rd generation iPod Nano, and it worked great.}

True Control Panel

The left sleeve is outfitted with Westcomb’s True Control interface and works as it should. It takes some practice to get the pressure right on the buttons, but after you get it down it’s a piece of cake to use.
