Very cool indeed!  I’m anxious to try one of these - I’ve been wanting a skin, but the others don’t have the belt clip.

Interestingly though, it’s not on the store’s website yet.  I have a MacClear on pre-order and emailed them saying I wanted to change my order to this, but haven’t heard back yet.

Hopefully, they’ll offer this for 1st & 2nd Gen iPods too.

VERY NICE done! Finally, a skin that has a dock opening! Beautiful, very snug fit it looks like! Just bought the PowerDesigns Color Mask, would love to buy the iSkin to give my 15gig iPod even more protection.

You don’t understand, I’m looking for a semitranslucent iSkin (to show off my iPods’ design) with a Belt Clip like these new ones have. If there is such a product out there, someone please let me know. The 1-2Gen iSkins don’t have Belt Clips.

In the next 15 days, a special belt clip will be available for your 1-2gen iSkin. It is now being designed by the manufacturer of iSkin and will be released next month. Find it at ThinkDifferentStore - it is expected to sell for $5 - the removable stub is made from brass with eltrecto plated chrome. The inside part has PTU wrapped around it to provent it from scratching your ipod and the belt clip is a high grade clear plastic belt clip.

Fantastic! That means us 1st-2nd Gen users can hang our fashionable iSkins on our belts too! That was the only thing stopping me from getting iSkins for my 20 Gigger. Can we preorder this from ThinkDifferentStore?

Let them get set up for it 1st. This belt clip has been undevelopment for the last 2 months. You and other cusotmers of iSkin, Grove Jacket, Aqua Jacket and any other case that did not provide for a belt clip can look to me for their solution. All products developed by me at [url=][/url] are available at ThinkDifferentStore. Once my online order system is up an running, your orders placed on my system will automatically go the the distributor/reseller in that state. As manufacturer I do not want to compete against my resellers, all the specials you see on my site will be available through them at the same price. I will eventually have 1 distributor in every state, I am still looking for more entrepreneurs that want to partner with me and become a distributor and share in the booming business of iSkin, Maclear and other products that I will be designing and manufacturing.
