We do write a lot about iPod enabled clothing and bags = iPod Fashion but there is more than the iPod in the world.
For folks who have another favorite music player, G-Tech might have just the right bag for you like The Replay which looks cute and allows some control over your music in a convenient way: not having to rummage in your bag to look for your player for just muting the sound or turn up the volume.
The Replay is a good looking sling-bag with music player control buttons on the shoulder strap.
The 3-button control of The Replay allows controlling the volume either up or down. The key pad features a keylock to protect against accidental operation and will lock automatically after 7 seconds of non-use. To unlock, press and hold the key lock for 4 seconds to unlock.
Simple like that but this is very handy in daily use, believe me, I have by now experience with such great functionality that I do not want to miss it on any of my bags.
One drawback has this NOT â€˜Made for iPodâ€™ solution: firstly, only the volume can be adjusted and secondly, you need to feed the keypad/controller with power = 2x AAA batteries to make it work. This is notâ€™ incredibleâ€™ convenient because no battery power will mean the volume adjustment function will not work either.
The keypad is made of ElekTexâ€™s Smart Fabric is located on the mono-strap where you find also the universal headphone jack. A zip compartment in front has a plethora of pockets for a phone, cards, pens and accessories, and a mesh pocket on the side. You can tuck your wallet in the hidden zip pocket on the back, a neat feature.
Available in the colors: Jet Black, Rain Blue and Bubblicious Pink. The Replay has a very reasonable price tag of just $ 63.22 as seen on Get a Bag.com
I found another online retailer, Crutchfield.com who sells the blue version of the Replay for just$ 19.99 (US shipment only). This is a price tag you will not see that often on a Audio control bag!
