Don’t just use technology, wear it! That is apparently the latest mantra coming out of the Plantronics camp as the accessory maker has decided to plunk Bluetooth technology into a selection of Quiksilver and Roxy apparel. We’ve seen Bluetooth watches and iPod shirts in the past, and Plantronics is keeping that growing tradition alive with four new products which will debut during the 2007/2008 Outerwear season.
The Quiksilver Double Daffy Snow Jacket will not only keep you warm and dry when Mother Nature drops the white stuff, but it’s also got “Plantronics stereo sound and voice technology with Bluetooth.” The Roxy Teen Angel Snow Jacket is much the same. $380 and $340, respectively.
The Quicksilver Pulse Helmet and the Roxy Shiver Helmet let you tear up the slopes with your snowboard, all while keeping your head bobbing to the music and your voice connected to the rest of your team. And yes, your noggin is kept nice and safe in case you have a tumble too. $250 each.
