Magpie iPod Outfit for the iPod nano

This reinforced vinyl case design for the iPod nano provides nearly complete protection, and is available in six different color and trim combinations, which the company claims are cut from huge patterns to ensure no two cases are precisely the same. Magpie's placed its non-detachable rear belt clip upside down for easier nano viewing, and included a removable keychain for attachment to your clothes, purse, or keys. A super-small Hold switch hole is the only oddity.

BTI i-Zleeve Complete On-The-Go Kit for iPod 5G

This package of two jelly-like rubber sleeves (one each for 30GB and 60GB iPods) comes with a special two-position belt clip. In its standard position, you can attach it (surprise) to your belt, but in its reversed position, you can flip open its bottom to mount your 5G iPod on a table. The components can also be attached to BTI's iPod Battery ii (not included) to provide hours of continuous video playback without the need for you to hand-hold the 5G iPod.

dasblau The Wrap for the iPod nano

Somewhat like a small leather wallet or keypurse, The Wrap surrounds your iPod nano with a genuine leather exterior, clear plastic nano sleeve, and an iridescent inner silk lining. Velcro seals the case closed. Multiple leather variants are available; our review sample has a crocodile-like texture.
