picIncase has provided iLounge with an exclusive first look at three upcoming lines of leather iPod cases that sport very stylish designs. These include: the Dinopod, Argyle, and Crest cases.

“These products are focused in a different direction than the line we currently have in Apple Stores,” Incase’s Scotty Crowe told iLounge. “We’re developing a more fashion-forward collection and creating a lifestyle based around the user of the iPod. That said, we’re limiting the availability of most of the products to select retailers in select markets in order to maintain the integrity of this new collection.”

The Dinopod cases are built with high-quality leather and come in yellow, green, red, and blue with embossed silhouettes of four common dinosaurs and their names—Brontosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops. The cases hold full-size iPods and offer wrap-around protection and feature a leather-wrapped belt clip.

Made of the same high-grade leather, the fashionable Argyle cases come in green with blue pattern, gray with red pattern, and brown with pink pattern. They also offer all-around protection, leather clad belt clip, and accommodate full-size iPods. The argyle design is made up of a combination of embossed colors and actual stitching.

The Crest line will consist of a white zippered clutch-like wallet and two smaller wallets—one green leather and one black striped denim. All three have embossed crest designs. The white Crest case holds full-size iPods and features a clear screen protector, a pouch for earbuds or other small accessories, and slots for credit cards. The smaller wallets have a flexible silicone strap, hold full-size iPods, and feature a clear screen covering, earphone holder, and a clear pocket to hold various thin items.

Incase said readers can contact them for futher information at dinopods@goincase.com.

Dinosaurs rule! My U2 iPod will rock even more with a T-Rex protecting its scratchy-black exterior.

The dinosaur covers are modeled off of the t-shirts that, like the one I had, back in the 80’s. Hope they make them for the mini. Nice, Incase.

I like my tough skin from speck. Makes the Ipod a little more bulky but its worth it.

toughskins?  those the ones that look like erasers?

I have one of the 0.7mm #### cases.  it doesn’t absorb much shock, but my iPod hasn’t ever been dropped, and I’m mainly interested in keeping off light scratches and whatnot.  it works great for that.

Sorry - but I think these look cheap. If you came across them in H&M and the were going for a fiver, they’d constitute a thrilling discovery. Dinosaurs are a kid thing, argyle is over, and the crest makes no sense coming from a non-lux label. Not for fashionistas.

thank god fashinstas only make up like 1% of the world.

and argyle is always in if you know how to rock it. a real fashionista would know that!

I really dig the argyle (reminds me of the socks I had in the late 70s/early 80s that I wore with my cordouroy knickers and penny loafers ... lol) but I think I’m one of the minute few who doesn’t like the dinosaurs.  My 6 year old daughter would really like one, though!  Pam smile

let me guess… not available for 3G iPods.

Yuck.  The dinosaur designs look like the crappy merch found in museum shops or the Discovery channel store.  The argyle look is ok, but tired, and the phony crests are just cheap looking.  If Incase wants to do something “fashion forward”, maybe they should hire a couple of decent designers.
