This four-piece kit provides clear plastic protection for the front, back, and sides of a fifth-generation iPod; XtremeMac sells different sized versions for 30GB and 60GB iPods. Each comes with a single front shell, rear shells with and without an integrated belt clip, and an adhesive clear protector for the iPod's Click Wheel. Rubber pads are used to prevent scuffing of the rear of your iPod. Despite considerable peel-off protection for the parts inside the box, one of the three plastic shields in our review box arrived scuffed.


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.
