Too bulky. It defeats the purpose of Nano - to be small and unobtrusive.

Is this case available anywhere yet (even for pre-order?) I couldn't find it...

How is nothing said about the huge D rings on the back of the case??? Those are huge compared to the nano. I thought they were rediculous on the mini, and really don't see much point in them on this one either. Too bulky.

Clip would be nice for the inside of my pocket. If I don't see a good carabiner case before this becomes avaiable, I'm sold.

They have most of the Incase offerings on Apple's online store, now. There's no sports case, yet. I went ahead and ordered the neoprene sleeve smile

The Incase cases for the iPod nano are not on the Apple Store. They may be IN Apple Stores, but not online.

I ordered mine from the online store. Perhaps, it's only for the US, right now?

Wow, this looks great for the gym. I guess my only concern would be the minor holes and possible sweat...oh blahgar...I'm sold!

Any idea when theSports case will be available & where? Will it be exclusively through the Apple Store (online)?

these products don't seem to be available in australia. i want to give my money to incase for on of these suckas but can't find a way to do it. is it me or does that seem absolutely ridiculous?? i've emailed them and had no reply. do they have an online store?? the only place i can find them for sale is on the u.s apple store (online) and they don't ship to australia.

why do these companies forget about the rest of the world. there is currently no cases available for purchase in australia. whoever figures this out first and releases something for us downunder would make a killing. come on this is marketing 101.

I hate these #$%%^$$ website links that don't take you to the product. And then you have to wait for all their #$#%%^ flash to load and then navigate to the product. @#$% that.

Give us something we can really use and go to. Don't waste our time.

OMG! How I hate flash! No middle click in firefox...wait for load...wait for little leaf to fill up. Flash is the devil!!!

Does anybody know when, or if, the apple store is going to start carrying the incase neoprene sports case, the canadian store is carrying the sleeve but not the sports case. I was wondering if they are not going to carry the sports case as it might be too much competition for their own arm band model, or if there is just a delay from incase. Maybe you could find out some info as to when they will actually be stocking it Jeremy. Thanks in advance to anybody who can shed some light on the topic, I'm just waiting for a decent case to be available for the gym before I buy my nano.

it's out already

the neoprene sleeve by itself can be found in the “cases? section at the online apple store -

the sports package can be found in the “armband? section
you might have to go on to page 2 to see it smile

cheers & God bless

Picked mine up at the Chandler mall in AZ. Great case, but the vinyl covering the case's wavy...ah well, time for a mod!!

Posted by Jodiuh on November 5, 2005 at 2:10 AM (PDT) Comment 17

Oops! I forgot to mention where it's wavy! On the click wheel! So instead of being a quick and slick slide, it's more like a bump and hump grind...or something like's late!

Posted by Jodiuh on November 5, 2005 at 2:11 AM (PDT) Comment 18

The sports case and the leather flip-open case are now showing up in Canada. Just bought the sports case at Future Shop in Gloucester, ON. They had just placed them on the shelves at lunchtime. Prices were 29.99 and 24.99 respectively.

Well you have to remember that the main material used is neoprene. Neoprene has some stretch to it therefore the plastic covering onthe click wheel is NOT going to be as smooth as a case made with non-stretch materials

Hmmm... the sides do look stretchy...

Just purchased mine, and overall it is a very sturdy. I am confident running with it. Only problem is the bulkiness. I bought the nano for the sleekness; the stitching on the sides gives it a huge appearance. I absolutely LOATHE the vinyl on the screen because it greatly reduces the sharpness and, on the click wheel because it greatly minimizes the sensitivity.

Any idea if this case has an opening where you could insert the Nike+iPod sensor?
