AVA Showcase iPod Rebel 5G Denim Case

As one of the more impressively designed denim cases we've seen for an iPod, AVA has taken the blue jeans theme to a new level, with a rear jean jacket-style pocket and matching attachment hook. You can pop off the pocket, or keep it attached; in either case it holds a pair of iPod earbuds or some spare change. There's an integrated clear screen protector, and denim Click Wheel coverage.

Kroo Cayman, Leather, Minimalist and Nanostruct Cases for iPod nano

These four new cases for the iPod nano are either entirely or partially made from inexpensive leather, and frequently accented with metal. Each is available in multiple colors. Of the cases, the metal and leather combination case Cayman is the most interesting; the others look like many generic iPod cases we've seen before.

Kroo Forza, Melrose, Struct Leather Cases for iPod 5G

These three new cases use inexpensive leather to cover substantial portions of a fifth-generation iPod, and other than their variety of colors are highly similar to existing designs we've already seen in the marketplace. Of the designs, Forza - the case with a pop-out rear piece that serves as a 5G iPod stand - is the most interesting.
