Burberry-like plaid continues to be all the rage in recent iPod case designs, as Speck Products' new TechStyle Classic for iPod blends a brown or black "leather grade material" exterior with a classic beige plaid canvas lining. Unusually, TechStyle Classic consists of three pieces: a traditional iPod case with screen and Click Wheel protection built in, but limited top, bottom, and side corner coverage, a swivel belt clip-adorned matching holster for the case, and a sizer pad that's used if you've put an encased 30GB iPod into the holster. You can use the standard case with or without the holster, which adds a little bottom protection and also completely covers the iPod's Click Wheel.


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.
