    Man, the new layout does present some problems in case design.  This is one ugly case IMO.

    I think that it has a good look.  Some of the other cases out there are far uglier or more expensive and some are ugly and expensive.

    Not as bad as some of those nasty DLO’s. Very functional in that it protects while you can still use it, and can carry earbuds. May be a little bulky though. Hoping for a CEO Classic soon.

    If you have ever had a Marware case, you would appreciate the sportsuit.  I personally use it for the Bicycle mount.  Its the ONLY case I have found that has so many mounting options.

    I agree… it’s not the most “Apple Like” design.  But its not designed by that arrogant European fellow. It’s design is function first!

    Great work!

    I just hope this case is an improvement from the last original iPod MARWARE sports case. I got it just in time for my then brand new iPod. I immediately stuck my iPod in the MARWARE case thinking it would protect my iPod from any scratches for the rest of it’s use.

    It did the complete opposite. Not only did it get stuck in the case(I apparently put it is wrong?!?!), but when I finally got it out it had scratches on the back part of the iPod. That was a huge bummer since I hadn’t even had it one day. Needless to say I was furious.

    I then tried the official Apple case. For the older gen iPods it is great. It works very well with my bike(too bad it’s so pricey!). I can stick it in my pocket and slide the hold on and off and slide it out to change tracks easily. The belt clip for the Apple case works very well, although my friend’s clip oddly enough broke off. He still has no idea why it happened but mine is working great!

    No clue how good the Apple case is for the new iPods though…

    “arrogant European fellow” - Kevin

    You mean Jonathan Ive, who’s British. Who cares if he’s arrogant or not? If he designed a case it’d probably be better than anything around at the moment.

    This case must be the most protective on the market.
    I had an Xtremac (made of leather),  it was cool but I wonder weither it really protected it against crashes. I need a case that protects my Ipod and my B&O airbuds, and marware sport case seems perfect.

    Someone mentioned in another review that the belt clip that ships with this case is a little suspect - may cause the ipod to become detached and lost.  Anyone have any experience with this?

    Thanks.

    i have experience and if the clip is put on correctly nothing is wrong with it however, the way the clip is set up because it slides on its easy to accidently not slide it on both sides (only slide it on one side of the plastic) but that is not a manufacturing problem, but yes the clip will be jsut fine (and if not-marware makes some of the most padded secure cases out of the rest smile)
