Timbuk2 releases iPod Case, prepares iPod Graphic Sleeves

picSan Francisco-based messenger bag maker Timbuk2 has joined the iPod accessory market with two new products: the iPod Case ($20.00) is a ballistic nylon and Velcro sheathe available now in eleven colors (navy blue, black, gray, red, purple, brown, silver, orange, dark green, pink, and burgundy), designed as one-size-fits-all and matching the company’s well-respected bags. An iLounge review is forthcoming soon.

Timbuk2’s iPod Graphic Sleeves are planned for an early 2005 release, and are tailor-cut to the specific shapes, screen sizes, and controls of the iPod and iPod mini. As originally designed, each Sleeve will include a “durable graphic exterior” made from vinyl, a “plush interior lining,” a color-coordinated “spring steel belt clip,” and a snap to hold the top of the case closed. Pricing is as yet unknown, and these features are subject to change before release.

i hate to break it to you guys, but umm, these things aren’t very new.  In fact when i bought my 3g ipod two days after it’s release, this was my first case.  SO i don’t know why you guys are saying they just released it.
But my review of it is, it’s a very nice case, won’t mark/scratch the back of your precious pod.  The headphone slit is a little small, but you could cut it just a ways to your liking.  there ya go!

Has anyone tried them while using the Timbuk2 bag as a messanger?  That is using it while biking/rollerblading etc?  That’s the only time I find that I really like the ‘remote’ control, and I stash the iPod well into the padded saftey of my bag.  (I wiped out once and landed on the laptop, which amazingly was fine).
