Do you use a case with your iPod?

By "case," I mean something that you leave on the iPod while using the clickwheel, etc. So the Apple "Sock" would not count. (As if anyone actually owns those things )



If you answer "no" please hop over to my other poll, "Does your unprotected iPod get scratched?"

    I do use the funny little pocket thing that came with my nano. It seems to help a ton with keeping my nano clean and scratch free.

    With my first 20 GB iPod I bought a little rubber case off eBay for like $4. With my new 30 GB video, I uh, never took the plastic sheet off the top of the iPod, haha. I found most scratches were found on the front. Plus we can't have a dirty screen.

    Just for clarification because I'll be getting a Nano soon- is that the iPod Sock you're referring to?



    Does it come with one of them in the box? Or did you buy it separately.

    Yeah, that's smart. I do that when I buy a new watch although it usually doesn't last really long...

    That is actually what I'm referring to. I think it's actually called a sleeve or something. My mistake. It is quite nice actually. It really alleviates the need for me to purchase a separate case.

    Thanks. What's the inside like? Does it have a soft lining? Or is it just one material inside and out?

    Soft lining. The best I can describe is felt like. It's not quite felt, higher quality. Now that we are analyzing every bit about it, the only complaint I have is that the stitching seems a little shoddy. One of the bottom corners has started to come undone.

    That's exactly thinking when I read that. I do know some who tried it and his nano fit. Although, with how small the sleeve is I think I would call it a pico. The iPod Nano fits very VERY snugly in it's sleeve.

    You forgot an option. I put a LCD protection sheet on the face of my nano. I replace it about every 3-4 months. It works flawlessly.

    I've got a hard shell on my 4G. For my next iPod, possibly a 5G if I get a mac before Sept 16, I'll probably put one of these on it (hopefully it'll work in dock accessories like car chager/fm modulator combos). I've got one on my digi cam and it's pretty sweet.

    I have a bulky skin from Spec but it can't use it with my mm50 from Logitech. So I got one of those clear plastic overlays and that has worked perfectly. No case, no scratches, $14.

    Doesn't count as a cover for the purposes of this poll...

    No, I haven't used a case with my 20gig photo ipod, and I am regretting it now. I'm in desparate search of a case, and yes it's scratched.
