G-Tech, part of GoodhopeBags, offers now a single strap backpack with build-in iPod remote control.
The Psycho, that’s how this model is called, is more than a rugged backpack for your school essentials — it’s also a great way to enjoy your iPod with convenient remote operation.
The backpack’s single strap has a control panel that connects to your player through a built-in docking cable. You can change the volume, skip forward or back through songs, pause and turn the power on and off — all while your iPod is tucked safely away in a dedicated pocket inside the bag.
The Psycho bag features a large, padded main compartment, as well as side pockets for a bottle, PDA, cell phone and other items. There’s a headphone jack built into the strap, so you can enjoy your music without headphone cords draped all over your backpack.
