As one of Griffin's most original case designs, Courier serves a specific purpose: it uses Velcro to attach an iPod and accessory carrying pack to the shoulder strap of a bag or backpack, providing clear-faced containers for 5G iPods and iPod nanos, plus a Velcro compartment to hold earphones or cables when they're not in use. An integrated headphone cord manager is found on Courier's side, a zippered pocket on the back, and a carabiner hook on its bottom, all adding to its versatility, while small strips of reflective material are on the sides to increase your visibility in the dark. Both the included iPod and nano cases come off of the Courier strap base for separate carrying or pocketing if you prefer. Though we're impressed by Courier's innovation and functionality, its build quality leaves a little to be desired, thanks to a tough-to-use nano holder and lots of stray strings.

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.
