As XtremeMac's entry in the clear film protector sector, TuffShield for iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch ($15 each) each sell in three-packs: you get three sets of screen and control protectors for your iPod, plus a cleaning cloth. The iPod nano and classic versions each include screen and Click Wheel covers, while the iPod touch version comes with a full face protector. Pricing is very aggressive by clear film standards given the number of pieces in each package, and XtremeMac claims that the film uses several layers to provide superior resilience.


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.
