imageFossil is now selling leather cases for Apple’s iPod and iPod mini.

The vaguely named “Big MP3 Case” fits fourth-generation iPods and comes in an orangish-brown hue with camouflage fabric lining and in a teal leather mock croc pattern. Both styles sell for $15.

Fossil’s “Mini MP3 Case,” also priced at $15, is made specifically for iPod minis. It’s available in black leather with striped red fabric lining.

and I’m sure they’re as cheaply made as everything else from fossil, especially for $15.  I have yet to buy one product of theirs that hasn’t fallen apart within the first 3 months.  Don’t ask why I keep buying things.

I could make something better looking and longer lasting than that!

The iPod has been out for years now and companies like Fossil still call it the I-pod. Ugh

In defense of Fossil, I’ve had a Fossil wallet for going on two years now, I abuse the crap out of the poor thing (George Costanza’s got nothing on me), and it’s held up fine.

That said, though, these cases look neither very protective nor very attractive. Pass.

This case is actually very nice.  I purchased it and it was very inexpensive ($15.)  It is cheap for real leather. Belt clip is nice overall a 5 out of 5.

I have the mini case, and all i can say is that it is the best case i have ever owned for the ipod mini….it is very protective, even has a little plastic part for the screen…another sweet aspect of it is that it has a spot so the wire can fit in the bottom of it, it can be in the case and charge…The belt clip is every nice.  the look of it is very nice also..the red inside complements the worn brownish outside.the stitching is also done nicely.
