What’s going on with Contour? I hope they hurry up. Their competitions are really going far out fast!

I have one of the convertibles for my 4G—I highly recommend it.  More versatiltiy than any other case I’ve seen.  I also put a patch of velcro on my dash to hold the iPod in place in my truck with iTrip and without the removable lid and it works great.

Can the armband be detached from the convertible version?

Love all the options with the convertible. This is the case for me. I wanted something small that could hold my headphones of I wanted.

Excellent.

I have the expensive convertable.  I really wanted a case that would hold my ear phones, and while it is a good case, the plastic that covers the iPod display area is scratchedt up.  The rest of my iPod looks great - not a scratch anywhere - except where the Marware plastic covering rubbed scratches on my iPod display area.

I have the Convertible for my 2G 20gig .... my ipod has barely ever been out of it since day one ..... last week i got a rude shock when i pulled my ipod out expecting it to be in mint condition scratch free .... rather than scratch free I noticed that at the bottom of my ipod are lots of little marks possile from where the plastic of the convertible is stitched to the rest of the case or perhaps mayve there was dirt between the case and my ipod and it has been rubbing for the last 12 months .... grrrr - very annoyed .... has anyone else sexperienced anything similar? ... i am curious if this is a design fault and if so if it has been rectified for 3G/4G versions.

I’m seriously considering the Convertible for my 3G—does the armband do a good job of holding the ipod in place whle running (I run for about an hour at a time)?  Or does the IPod flop around (as the top and bottom are not supported by the armband)?

Thanks!
