Great review! I ordered mine four weeks ago, it still hasn't arrived. :( I'm pretty much camping by my letterbox at the moment.

I agree with everything in the reveiw - and the people at Marware are a delight to deal with - You are in for a treat Mintcake!

I have the original ceo glove. The only disappointment I have is the clip mount on the back is of very poor quality. Six tiny plastic pegs are glued into a plastic plate that is stiched into the leather. When these pegs let go, as they did on mine, it has to go back to the manufacturer. On my replacement unit the snaps are annoyingly loose. I give the design a 10, but craftmenship a 3.

OK, it has *finally* arrived!

Warning: it comes in a big package screaming "tax me!" to customs officials. I've had to pay 20 duty on top of the 48 it cost for the case plus P&P, making a grand total of 68 (that's around US$70) for the case. And it took two months to get here.

Nice case, but European buyers should know the price they pay. No European resellers at present, apparently.

I found the MARWARE case under my Xmas three wink and I like it's very nice, very good leather.
The only thing I did not like is that it is divided in two pieces and I would have definitely preferred not having the two flap bottons on the back.
I think I will be looking for a personalisation.....unless MARWARE wants to send me a second case according to my requests!!! wink

I bought this case at the beginning of December, and it has turned out to be complete CRAP! Two of the three snaps have now fallen off, and Marware has chosen not to answer my email. Not at all happy.

I actually really enjoy this case. It does it's job well - it protects the iPod! I think my only complaint is that sometimes my iPod gets too hot. I don't know if that's due to the case or what but that's my only complaint. I think one of the *best* features is that it comes in two pieces, because sometimes I need the cover flap and sometimes I do not. I would definitely recommend this case - it is one of my favorite things about the iPod. Go get one now!

Can you dock the iPod when its in the case?

About the raised plastic covering- I've read the review of the "Incase" iPod case on this site also. The main complaint of that product was that particles would get caught in the gap between the screen and screen protector and scratch it. The gap between the screen and screen protector on this case seems bigger. Has anyone had scratching poblems with it?

I was just about to order this from malware, $36.00 for product, $55.00 for shipping to Australia.
I don't think so.

my case came in after a reasonable shipping period [3 days by ground], and I must day, I couldn't be more pleased. I was looking for a case that was thin enough to allow me to carry the ipod in my pocket, yet protective enough to let me put it in my backpack. While not as thin as some of the silicon cases, nor as durable as say, the ipod armor, I'm finding this case to be an excellent blend of the two, especially with the removable cover, which is what allows it to dual-task so well. The only drawback I've thusfar found is that it doesn't let me use my dock, but that seems inevitable given my case requirements.

I was wondering if the Marware CEO Classic 4G case was any good. A review would be nice.
