Wow.  Pricey.  And that tab still bothers me.  If they would slim that down a little, maybe it would be OK.  I am still waiting on my Core Case.  Hint, Hint, Corey.

i got the black model for my black 2nd gen 8gb nano, The matias cases
offer in my opinion the best protection (steel) with inside padding while still allowing access to wheel and ports, so put a new nano in it use forever and when you
remove your nano it will still look like day you recieved it, except for
possibly the click wheel. Overall
I give it 5 stars.
