The case these guys make are awesome! I’ve been waiting for this one to come out since I got my Waterfield nano case. Great protection, and even better looks!

Great. Another sleeve.  Just what the world needs.  And their innovation is: an elastic strap.  SFBags/Waterfield makes some cool stuff, but this seems just weak, esp. from them.

I don’t know about everyone else, but to me, one of the many things I like about the line of iPods, is their small size. I’m allergic to carrying alot of any kind of bulk around; whether it’s cameras, backpacks, etc.
To stuff an iPod into anything that adds more than a millimetre of dimension to the iPod is anathema.
Two of my iPods have been swathed in a micro-fibre case, made by another company, and they’ve weathered everything I’ve thrown at them, without a scratch.
Some people drop stuff, so the bullet-proof, ironclad cases are for them.
It brings to mind the writing you see on watches “resistant to 500 metres” - well, I don’t think you’re going to dive THAT deep!

Great case. Perfect for tossing the nano into my gym bag. I have other cases from Waterfield and the quality is top-notch.
