After looking through the various cases for the to protect and keep my brand new iPod clean, I found this one. It looked good, felt nice and looked like it was up to the job of protecting my new pride and joy. And to date I havn't been dissappointed. I fit's the iPod well, feels nice and has access to all the ports and controls. It's easy to access the screen when you want to. If I had the option to buy a cover again, I would go for this again straight away.
