I think we’ve officially come to the point where there is a “new” case for some variation of the iPod posted on here EVERY day(although cases for the shuffle seem to be the most prevelent).

I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

I would be concerned about Nickel plating.  Nickel alloys and nickel itself are extreme contact sensitizers causing severe allergic hypersensitivity reactions in the skin. This is best seen in belt buckles, snaps/buttons/rivets for some jeans etc. Hope they checked that out and did not just consider cosmetics.

I think it looks good, no big complaints. Would a device that isn’t rubbing against your body’s sensitive places really cause that much of an allergic reaction?

I can just see it: “Hmmm…making my Shuffle obviously match my plated Colt semi…the glare alone should scare a mugger senseless.  Let’s see some punk thug think about jacking me now!”

Western cowboy types into shooting black powder gotta love it, too…

The only thing bad about this case is that there is no protection inside the case. The iVault has a protective coating in the inside.
