Wired Ralph Lauren Aero Type Ski Jacket has iPod and Bluetooth Controls
January 2nd, 2010
When you want to carve up the slopes in style, look no further than Polo Ralph Lauren’s RLX line of products. The RLX Aero Type is filled with technology to make your skiing even more enjoyable.
This black Ralph Lauren RLX Aero Type Jacket features super-resistant double layered fabric and has arm-mounted controls for your iPod, so that you can control your portable media player without taking it out of your pocket. The shell is made out microfiber and the jacket has adjustable cuffs as well as drawcords. The jacket also includes the RECCO avalanche rescue system if you ever get lost while out on the slopes.
It looks like this jacket has other gadget-oriented features as well. PANiQ technology will allow you to remotely use Bluetooth and other MP3 players, not just iPods. Sounds cool.
It’s currently on sale at the Ralph Lauren online store, discounted from $1,290 (USD) to about $780. I guess that’s about the price for some regular ski jackets.
