Best iPod Case

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just got my iPod and it really likes fingerprints. What case is best (I'd still like to use the buttons)?

Personally I find the leather or faux-leather cases unattractive.

That leaves the SFBags "Super Dooper" case:
<a href="http://www.sfbags.com/PRODUCTS/iPOD_INFO/i.htm" target="_blank">http://www.sfbags.com/PRODUCTS/iPOD_INFO/i.htm</a>

which is okay, if you go for the braided-thread look.

I most want a neoprene case, which I think offers better drop-protection and is the best looking. Marware is working on one, but it isn't ready quite yet; in the meantime, they have a neoprene "sleeve" case:

I'm waiting for the Marware play-through case, and am using an old mitten in the meantime

<a href="http://www.sfbags.com" target="_blank">www.sfbags.com</a> is the best (IMHO).

bought the reacer-x and sleeve for my titanium g4, great quality.

I got a sleeve for my iBook from them and I LOVE it. I'm gonna try and swing by my friend's house tomorrow to see his case (a sfbags one). I looked at the pod one at the ro3 site, but it isn't really what I'm looking for. I think I need more protection than something like that offers. I like the mareware one ( if it had access to buttons) but it isn't shipping, so I think I'll stick with the sfbags one.

$40 is a lot, i'd rather get the one I mentioned above in suede or somthing like that and get the car adapter all for $50... seems like a better deal to me

I know the price is high (more than my iBook case) but I really like the quality and don't need all the stuff that one comes with (I have a car adapter and don't need all those clips). I'd rather go with a company I trust. Who knows. I may look at my friends and hate it, but I don't anticipate that.

No I'd have to say that it looks really cool tho... I mean the "escape hatch?" ANYTHING with an escape hatch for my iPod HAS to be cool... but it still is a lot of money... I also agree that I dont need all those damned clips!!! oh well its the only way to get the sweet discount...

I went and saw my friend's case and I really like it. Only problem is that the sfbags site says new orders won't ship til March. I just got my iPod and it already is all icky. I don't even want to think how it would be if I wait til march. I think in the mean time I'll get that mareware sleeve. I'd get the pod pac thing, but I'm a clutz and afraid I'll drop it. Anyone have/used one of these?
