IPOD cover

What does everyone use to keep their IPOD from freezing over? My phone goes in a pocket of an inner layer, but I like my IPOD accessible to change up the music. Last year when it got really cold the screen would fog and it would stop working. If it matters I now have the newer IPOD NANO.

I put my iPhone in the Otterbox case and haven't had any problems using it or taking it out every once in a while.

I never had one of those pockets in the past, but my jacket for this year has one. I guess i will toss it in that and see how it does. I was hoping there was some kind of special sock like cover for these things.

I use an otterbox, also, for snowboarding. Will help reduce impacts and it is "splash" proof. I wouldn't dunk it underwater, though you can in shallow water for brief periods, but it's more than enough to keep moisture from snow out.

If you have a 4G+ nano, grab a pair of headphones with a controller or buy a controller adapter. Then you never have to remove your ipod.

This is a good solution, only problem is that you have to run the adapter or cord outside to get to it.

My pants and jacket have a hole to run the cord through, so I usually have everything inside and don't have to worry about exposure. If I keep it in my pant pocket, I can hit the dial through my pants. This is a little hard with poofy gloves though, I eventually want to get some fairly dexterous ones.

I use a Lifeproof case for my phone, completely water proof. I keep my iPod in the media pocket, no problems with it ever.

Yea, you're right, it can be annoying. I still have not* found a setup I'm 100% good with. The reason I like the mic/control is I can start/stop music, I can voice dial using just the button, answer call with the button and talk without ever taking my phone out. This is money for catching up with my group after splitting up.

The way I got around this is using the media pocket, running the cord through the port up into my jacket. The adapter I bought has a really robust clip on it so I clip that to my collar and then tuck the rest of back into my jacket and run the minimum amount I need for my headphones. Very cumbersome to get set up but works pretty well for the day.

If I could find a pair of the minimalist, on-ear 30mm driver style headphones is durable, quality and has a mic/controls, I'd be very happy. The Nixon Whip Mic are too fragiel, Kicker HP201 have no mic/controls, Icon 2's sound like shit. Woe is me.

I've always kept my iPod in my thigh pocket and never had a problem. What you could try is getting one of those glove heating pads and put it in a ziplock with the iPod. It should keep it warm for the battery to operate and prevent moisture from accumulating on it. The only problem is that you'd have to buy a box of the pads which might cost a bit.
