These thin, two-tone soft plastic Shades iPod cases ($16) come in two sizes, each providing substantial coverage for a fifth-generation iPod or iPod classic. Each case has a colorless integrated screen protector and colored protection for the rest of the iPod's body, with a slit-style bottom hole design for insertion and removal of the iPod. ShadesCases notes that the case's thin size enables you to use the iPod in an Apple-specified Universal Dock without the need to remove the plastic cover. A second-generation iPod nano version ($13) is also available.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
