picCovertec has launched a new iPod III leather case for 3G iPods. The iPod III case features flip-top design with magnetic closure, storage for credit cards, license, etc. and the Covertec belt clip ‘Wips System’. The ‘Wips System’ belt clip rotates 360 and when removed it leaves the back of the case flat without any protruding hardware. iPod III retails for $39.95 and is available in black, red, tan and black/orange. Covertec also sells a similar case for classic iPods for $39.95 in black, red, brown and black/orange. There is no indication which classic iPod model fits the case.

Finally, an attractive, slim leather case!  Pretty pricey though, and I wish there were more and larger pictures. 

What’s with these online vendors and their tiny pictures of items you can’t go see in a store?

That page will give you the closeups; actually much better than most website demos, especially the “zoom in” details.  It could use a “top port” and “bottom port” accessability view.

I don’t like the additional dangling thing on the front flap.  I think the PodPaqNappa is better (for my use) with its removable front flap. 

The Covertec has a benefit in that the belt clip can be completely removed, but I don’t have that need.

Those are the pics I was talking about.  Can’t get a feel for what the whole case looks like from different angles.

These cases do not fit the 30/40gb models correctly. They are ok for the 10/15/20gb. It is a nice case but only for the smaller gb models.
