Portable sound with the JanSport Recourse
JanSport's been a personal favorite of mine when it comes to backpacks. Keeping in sync with the popularity of personal digital music, a recent innovation of theirs was the AudioPack - a backpack with a headphone port and capability to fully remote control an iPod. Carrying the trend forward is the Recourse. This backpack comes with built-in flat panel audio speakers embedded at the front . What this means is that you can connect any portable music player to the supplied audio port and listen to music through your backpack. The speakers are well protected from the elements by compression molded panels while your audio player lies inside the bag within a special protective V-loft pocket. As added attractions, there's also a thermally insulated compartment to keep your drink of choice chilled and a bottle opener attached to the zipper pull.
An ideal companion while trekking through your favourite trails, the backpack comes in three colors - pink, purple and black. Currently not available in the US, it retails for ₤ 99.99 in the U.K.
