Now here’s a company that really listens to its customers. I asked for Pink, they delivered. I asked for a better belt clip they delivered. I asked for it to accomodate my iTrip, they delivered. Nice!!!!!! Now where the heck is my credit card.

Meh, still no protection for buttons and scroll wheel, ala Lajo. And they are STILL over-priced. It’s still an eXo3 and PDA screen protector for me!

iSkin cases are very expensive. They should lower their price :) 2 pair for $30 is a good price.

From the look of it, it has very fragile plastic clip. Make is metal (similar to rivet clip) and its worth 30 bucks.

It annoys me. I just got a overpriced iSkin exo2 (blue), and now they have the evo. Damn. The new belt clip, padded screen and the ability to connect things like a iTrip are almost enought to pursuade me to get an evo. If it was ~$15 dollars cheaper I would pull out a credit card. But i’m happy with the exo 2. Now they should make a (silcone?) dock that works with these cases…

WoW if all your looking at is price then buy a Lajo case, but if you’re looking for quality fit, better design, and superior screen protection then buy an iSkin case. The Lajo exo 3 case has covered buttons, no screen protection, no belt clip and an open firewire port - it should be cheaper in price. The iSkin exo and evo has a covered firewire port that the Lajo cases don’t. I’d rather have the covered firewire port any day. It can get damaged easier than the buttons.

../Waves to the forum, as a iPod N00b..

Wow. Im stoked. I just got my first iPod as a gift this week, birthday (42!!! - damn..how did I live this long??? ) The supplied Apple case is lame, so found out about this site from Tom’s Hardware.

I was going to order a eXo2 yesterday, then came here, found out about the Evo, ordered it yesterday! Can’t wait. (Their site was way laggy yesterday…they got a good response to the release I imagine) Anyhooo…wanted to thank this site for bein’ here, and all the peeps that post info…Im pretty excited!

I like these, but until I can dock it with the skin on I probably won’t get one…

Looks good.  BUT - are these skins still dust magnets?  That was the main turn-off for me.

^ True, I find myself barely using my eXo2 because it attracts so much dust and lint.

“From the look of it, it has very fragile plastic clip.”

Oh, so you’re just going to guess it’s fragile because you looked at one picture.  Don’t be an idiot.

I find that my eXo skin I got in indigo has become dusty and I don’t even use it because of that.

I use my McClear, iPod Sling or Mareware Sportsuit w/ armband.

AGGH!  i just finished ordering my exo3 asphalt a couple days ago, and now the evo comes out!!! the only reason i didn’t go for the exo2 was the damaging screeen protector, and now they fix it. *sigh* oh well, its only 30 bucks more, a small price to pay for ipod peace of mind…

dsotm, you can cancel your order with Lajo if it hasn’t shipped. He’s pretty good about that. He’s pretty responsive to emails.

If i had to decide beteween the Evo and Exo3, I would defintely go with the Exo3. Mainly, because it is much cheaper and provides more protection. Such as, it covers the scroll wheel and buttons. Plus, you can also use the iTrip with it because it is only 0.2 mm thick.

Correction 0.7mm thick.

I just ordered the iskin evo with 1-2 day shipping, and it just arrived and it is AMAZING.  It would be worth 50 dollars to me, and my ipod finally feels safe.  Now I need to buy a griffin italk and itrip to go with it!  Everyone go buy one of these, they are really worth it.

How exactly do you guys even have EXO3’s? Haven’t they been out of stock forever on Lajo.biz?

I guess I am the only one who doesn’t love the exo2.  It looks great and works great on the go, but it is def. a pain to use in the dock.  Plus it’s heavy and really bulks up the ipod.  The new clip might be nice, but do you still have to slide/pull the ipod out of the case to attach it?  It made it pointlessly heavy to carry around without the clip (if you leave the mounting disk on inside the case).

I have a black exo2 and I like to use it on trips because it’s pretty rugged.  And I’ve never had lint issues.  Being able to attach the navipod or itrip is a major improvement, too.
