View Full Version : Classy Case for 60GB 5G iPod?

Feb 2, 2006, 10:57 AM
Hello, Peanut Gallery!

I'm looking for a classy, probably leather, case for my black 60GB 5G ipod and haven't had much luck. Any suggestions?

I like, but don't love, the "Classic" line from Vaja, but they aren't selling them right now due to "materials shortages"?


My wishlist:

- "Classy" - something professional looking, probably leather. definitely not one of the "sporty" cases.

- Colorful. Black would be fine, but it might be nice to have an accent color.

- I don't love the "flip" style that seems to be all the rage. The Vaja's all have this, so it's fine, but it seems a little silly.

- Further, I don't love to have cutouts in my case to see the controls. I think that just looks awful. Again, the Vaja's all have this, but they're usually covered up by the "flip"

I was always a fan of the stock black case that came with the 3G and 4G ipods. What I'd really like is something a step or two above that. Help?

thanks so much

so you mention the flip cases that vaja has, but have you considered their i-vod case that has no flip? i just got one for my 60gb 5g and really like it...

otherwise, kesarai (http://www.case-ari.com/) make cases that look a lot like the i-vod but for a much more reasonable price.

and i'd suggest www.ilounge.com since they have tons of reviews, including one on the kesari case i just mentioned.

those case-ari's aren't half bad.

Although I don't really like how the cutouts look... Any other contenders?

id first coat your ipod with an invisible shield before you put it in anything.
