If there were ever two companies that should consider a merger, it would be the makers of these LimbGear iHood hoodies which incorporate iPod playback controls into the sleeve, and the makers of the HoodieBuddie we brought you last week, which replaced the hood’s drawstring with a functional pair of earbuds. The result would be the ultimate iPod-friendly hoodie, though probably quite expensive. The HoodieBuddie sold for $44 which isn’t that bad, but the LimbGear hoodie is $69. And in order for it to actually work you also have to buy the company’s PANiQ controller which is an additional $24.95. It’s kind of odd that it’s not included with the iHood since the gimmick is unusable without it, so I’m assuming it’s just a lame attempt to lessen the sticker shock, which brings the hoodie’s price tag to almost $100.
