K2 Genesis Pack
Get ready boarders. The Genesis Pack from K2 is blasting your way. It's a snowboarding backpack with a built-in speaker system so you can ride all day to your favorite, killer tunes.
The Genesis Pack has two flat speakers on each shoulder strap that direct your tunes towards your ears. That means you don't have to worry about headphones. All you have to do is put your music source (MP3,CD,tape) into the pack and plug it into the speakers. There's a small on/off and volume switch right on the strap, so this sound system is super easy to use. It's best to have an MP3 player or a shock-absorbing CD player so you can fly down the hill without your tunes skipping on every mogul. The speakers are water resistant and will run for six hours on four AA batteries, so they've got enough juice to last an entire day.
There's much more to the Genesis Pack than the speaker system. The bag also has special pockets for you to keep CDs, a cellphone, snowboard tools, your lunch and whatever else you need for your boarding adventures. K2's Genesis Pack is smaller than a ghettoblaster and more convenient than headphones. It's the perfect bag for two of life's greatest things - snowboarding and tunes.
The Genesis Pack costs around $130 US. For more on K2 Snowboards and their gear, click here.
