What do you mean, “current” iPod minis?

Will the new full sized Timbuk2 case accommodate a smallish hard case such as the Agent18 ClickShield?
I have a Timbuk2 bag and I’d love to pick up the iPod case for the strap, but only if I can leave my iPod in the ClickShield.

As an owner of the iDiddy, I highly recommend this product.  It is great to finally find an accessory that looks nice and is actually functional.  I used to just throw my iPod in my backpack and it would take me ten minutes to untangle the wires.  Now all I have to do is clip the earphones into the little clasps on the iLanyard and my iPod is all ready for use.  I now take my iDiddy-encased iPod everywhere.  It is great for walking around town, exercising, even cleaning.  It isn’t heavy around my neck, and the sound quality is actually better than the sound that comes out of the factory earphones.  I’ve tried other cases and bought the $150 earphones, and the iDiddy remains better than all the other products I’ve tried.  If you want a quality, multipurpose iPod case, I would definitely recommend the iDiddy.

Those new Timbuk2 cases look terrible.  They’ll have to pry my current Timbuk2 case out of my cold, dead hands!
