I have a similar case for my mobile phone. Very nice case, but I can't recommend it because of the clip design. The "button" protrudes so much that it often gets pressed (releasing the phone) when I sit. I have to be careful with it, and that's not what you need with a case.

Piel Frama is the best case I've come across for my ipod. It's best for someone who regularly switches out the ipod to put in to a dock. Although it adds a little bit of bulk - the ipod knows it is in its own best interest. Try stuffing 500 hundred albums in your pocket, yeah that's what i thought.

Ooh, purrrfect. Love that glossy leather.

The faux crocodile-skin is a turnoff--it either is or it isn't. Reminds me of the little electronics sticker of yesteryear, "Real Simulated Woodgrain". As opposed to fake simulated woodgrain? The case design does look nice. Any word whether Tumi is making a case for the iPod?

nice case, except for the freakin swivel clip!! why does everyone use those things?? has anyone tried sticking it in their pocket and noticed how bulky it is? it'd be cool if it could be swapped out for a regular belt clip, like the Krussell cases..

like the orange interior... but come on with the 80's alligator skin... What is this Miami Vice? Its' a bit dated for something so contemporary. The ipod needs the a case made of newer dare I say "tech-savvy" materials. Just my opinion.
