The Burton Amp Pack

No better marketing description was ever written: No – it can’t make you fly, land a 720 or help you disappear when the music pirate police start banging on your door, but it does let you switch songs on your iPodâ„¢ just by pressing a button on the shoulder strap. Introducing the first backpack in the world that not only carries your iPod but controls it too. The Burton Amp Pack integrates an iPod control system using SOFTswitchâ„¢ technology, which allows the iPod to be controlled through a soft, flexible control pad built into the pack’s shoulder strap. Constructed with super durable ballistic nylon, the Amp Pack features a secure iPod storage pocket, a headphone port located on the shoulder strap, an easy-access side entry laptop compartment and padded ergonomic shoulder straps for ultimate comfort. Whether you’re running to catch a flight, riding the subway or lugging your shit into the lodge, the Amp Pack makes it super simple to flip through your illegally downloaded music library.


Does anyone know where i can get one of these? Burton doesn't have any one their website. I can't find it anywhere. I want to get one before my ski trip in march.:huh:

go to the apple online store.

Yeah, they're all sold out, before they even hit the shelves! Although I have to admit I was lucky enough to pre-order one and expect it to arrive on Thursday :D

does it only support the ipod? or can u put in any other portable mp3 player? and is it roomy? plan using it for college and traveling

this pack is great. i use it when i go snowboarding. it was so expensive though. if anyone is looking for one go to www.apple.com and click on the store and search: burton amp pack. it is $199.99

Nothing like paying 200 dollars for a backpack with an inline remote. Try clipping the remote that comes with your ipod to the strap on your backpack
