With every new iPod and iPhone, AB Sutton releases new pricey but customizable kidskin leather cases that are designed to seriously impress their recipients. This year is no different, as the fifth-generation iPod nano gets a series of interesting designs, most notably two different leather cases that split into top and bottom pieces, one with a fully open bottom (-$70) and the other with only an exposed headphone port (~$80), as well as a traditional one-piece Slip case ($60), and a Simple Slip ($40) with no screen or control access, but a hole for the headphone port. All of the screen-friendly cases have integrated plastic screen protectors and holes for the Click Wheels; as always, attractive engraved personalization options are available in different fonts, along with your personal choices of thread, inner, and outer colored materials. The company ships you a felt iPod nano protector to use while you wait for the custom-made final product to be delivered.


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.
