Wow!  An iPod case that actually looks good!  Could be a bit big though.  And I’d worry about the nylon scratching the iPod.

This is by far the best looking case yet. This is the one I’ll order, I waited over a month for that Zip Clear case, and it still was on back order. The quality of this one looks great. I’ll reply back with comments if i get it.

That is a sweet looking case! Wow. I wonder if the bottom has a opening for the synch port?

Yes, it does… look at “more images” on their web page.

wow, that really looks like a high quality case. i like how the flip cover can be removed. the opening for the 4 buttons are nice. however, there’s no way to dock the ipod with the case on. that’s too bad….

I agree with everybody else, this is a sharp looking case. Just placed my order and can’t wait to get it.

I live right near this Booq place, I just called them to see if I can pick one up. I can’t afford another frickin’ scratch on my iPod!!!

Just ordered it! I think this is the one case to beat. How cool is that removable flap!!?? Now you can use the same case for traveling as you do for working out too.

Umm.  Nice, but doesn’t have screen protector.  It would be nice for it to have a screen protector and a flap. 
i-Vod it is then.  Too bad.  The i-Vod is the case to beat.

I got the case today at Creative Pro. It rocks. It looks great, the fit is perfect, the inside is lined with leather…

Rich, do you have a 15 or 30G ipod?  And is it loose on the 15?

I wish they would make a white version of it, i like to keep the ipods look.

I bought the leather version today at the Macworld Creative Pro Expo NY. It’s great. Looks very sharp. Functional. Just what I was looking for… My 30 GB iPod fits in it like a glove.

Why doesn’t it fit the 10 gig??? That sucks. Just canceled my order! I really wanted this one. What gives on the sizing?

From the site:
”...The PodPaq014’ssolid construction allows for a tightly controlled fit for all three iPod models…”
Which makes perfect sense, since according to Apple’s iPod Tech Specs page the 10 and 15 GB models have the same exact dimensions:
4.1 by 2.4 by 0.62 inches

The only thing I can find lacking on this case is screen protection.
The flap closure actually looks like the magnetic snaps on my wife’s purse, rather than actual snaps (although I would need to see it in person to verify.. can an owner clarify?).
