iSkin today announced a new version of its iSkin protector for Apple’s second-generation iPod nano. The new iSkin features a dual-layer design that combines an impact-resistant, clear face and screen protector with a shock-absorbing silicone layer. The new nano iSkin protector is available in several colors and comes in the following 3-packs: Groove Pack - Ghost (white, glow-in-the-dark ), Eclipse (black), Arctic (clear); the Chill Pack - Viper (purple), Sonic (blue), Arctic (clear); and the Cruise Pack- Blush (pink), Blaze (red), Arctic (clear). Each 3-pack sells for $30.

Whoever thought up those names should be kicked in the Groove Pack.

what happens if I put a color skin onto a black nano? Will it be like the evo3 where the color beneath won’t show through the silicone? If so then that’s great!

I hope there will be a review of these soon. I think I’ll get a pack most likely the Groove. I owe a silver 2GB nano and I really liked the black one.

I think that these cases need a plug or something for the bottom so when your not using an accessory you can have protection to the bottom. I also dont like how they dont have the cases individually, on the chance that you might just want one color and not the other two that come in the pack. The colors are also kind of dull. Otherwise, I think this case has a great design with the two different layers.

I think this is a very nice looking design from iSkin. I would choose the Chill pack. The only worry for me is that the hard plastic doesn’t protect the whole nano like the Claro does for the 5G.

I have a Evo3 black and to respond to the railrider, the evo3 only has the visor on the front side of the ipod and when I dropped the ipod on the back,no damage at all. So it doesn’t really matter if it doesn’t protect the back because the screen and front side is the most important

Does anyone know if these can be docked using a universal dock?

yes, they can be docked in a universal dock, also iskin will later come out with a dock adapter so it will fit securly in the apple ipod universal dock

I am sure these cases by iSkin will be good. They haven’t disappointed yet and they seem to be the leaders in ipod cases from what i see(IMHO).

These look like they will be perfect for me….if they have an arm strap option.  Anybody know?

I echo the question re: black nanos, and when will iLounge post some reviews of 2G nano accessories???

I too, would like to know how those coloured cases look on the black nano. Eagerly awaiting for the review and pics!

Does anyone know if the silicone cover fits tightly without the plastic VISOR clipped on? The Power Support silicon jacket received a high review and was stated to have a really snug fit and I was wondering how this one compared to it. Any news on a review of this product?

I have these for the 2g nano, and I am very pleased with them. I have a red nano, and I got the cruise pack. It looks great with the arctic, and the blush (pink) looks really neat with it. It fits just fine without the VISOR, but it just adds a little protection.

A dock adapter now comes with the packs.
