O'Neill H2 backpack

We're not sure that it's very fair of O'Neill to call their new H2 the first integrated solar backpack, but damned if it isn't one of the nicer ones we've seen around these parts of late. Not only does it rock USB-based charging of devices, it's also got extensive iPod integration (you know, we really should get one of those) not only via a control panel in the left shoulder strap, but also via its integrated Bluetooth module, which connects to a mic system in the straps—when you get a phone call, the H2 will automatically pause your iPod and put it through. Unfortunately, this is Europe only for right now, so keep your pants on while O'Neill sorts their stuff out in getting 'em across the pond.
