So is it really lint proof?

the eVo3 is a fine enough case - I had one for my 60 GB video iPod, but I recommend against using the belt clip - mine ended up ripping through the back of the silicon case with just normal use. Plus it fell off my belt on more than one occasion. Just avoid that trouble and don't use it.

I don't actually use the case any more. I picked up a Crystal Film Set for my vPod and I'm so much happier with it. It doesn't protect against drops and it doesn't cover every inch of the iPod from scratches, but it does cover enough of the iPod to keep it looking great. My iPod looks like an iPod and is the size of an iPod whereas the iskin eVo3 makes a pretty svelte 60 GB vPod into an ungainly behemoth. Also note that the Crystal Film Set does not have a "saran wrap" look like Invisible Shield does. It is truly clear.

Does it fit the visor they sell by itself?

On iSkin's website, they sell a clear VISOR for $7.49. I doubt this is for profit, replacement parts are usually sold at-cost or at a loss. It would not be "better" to buy one from eBay, because it will be used. People sell them when they are so scratched that you cannot use it. They do not state this in the auction. You think you are getting a clear VISOR when it really is an opaque-white one.

i like this case a lot - the design is nice. the one thing that really gets me is the tinted visor. that makes no sense. i wonder if it's just the pictures that make it look that way, but the black silicone looks pretty crummy... reminds me of tires or something. if they took a design like this and made it hard and glossy i'd be all over it. iSkin seems almost there, but i think i'd rather go with an incase folio. i have an agent18 for my nano and it looked nice for a while. now the screen is really scratched up and it looks about a year old in the case (which is what it is), while out of the case my ipod looks brand new. i want to find a case for the 5G that won't age so quickly and still protect the ipod. i like the DC and incase one... it's hard to choose since you have to compromise somewhere.

I need advice. Which one do you think would be a better buy: this case or the iSkin Claro Limited Edition? An answer would be much thanked!
