What do you use to protect your iPod?

What kind of case or skin do you use to keep your iPod clean and shiny?

Orange Sock sporting apple logo.

I dunno, it just makes up for the 'now' absent orange backlights

Not so good for drops i guess, but then what is that allows you to slip the ipod comfotably in your pocket?

Sock all the way.

I used to have an iskin, but from my work in an electronic store, and more importantly personal experience, it WRECKED the back of my ipod, the metallic finish was almost worn out by the poor design. Many customers had a rant over identical problems.

They might have fixed this problem though, but make sure to check that if you go the iskin way.

I've got an iSkin and it's fine - hasn't done anything to the back at all. Took the clip off it though that looked like it was going to make a mark.

iSkin Evo2 without the belt clip. The reason I think this is better than the Apple case (which scratches the back over time) is that these cases let you use the iPod without removing it from the case which is what scratches the iPod in the Apple case.

I've had it for around 3 weeks now (since I got my repaired iPod back from Apple with a perfect scratch free finish) and it's great. It might look a bit odd and sliding it in there is certainly weird but it works!

With my iPod mini I just use the belt clip for protection. Not that the minis scratch a lot, anyway, but when I loop the headphones cord (regular headphones, not those in-ear-sh...pooh) through the clip I also have an added protection from accidental dropping it.

I don't use anything. Mine stays in its iPod cup holder in my truck all of the time, so I don't worry about dropping it. Never worried about scratches and such. I want to be able to use it, not walk on eggshells around it. If I felt like I had to protect it that much, I probably would never use it. Before I docked it in my truck, I used the regular case it came with.

That's the same one I use. I also picked up one of those clear removeable click wheel covers, as that is the only thing the Agent 18 case leaves unprotected. My iPod looks as new as the day I bought it.

One nice benefit is that I can fit my 60GB iPod into the Bose SoundDock dock with the case still on, so I never have to take it out of the case.

I bought too many iSkins and similar that i don't even use anymore.

My iPod hasn't been out of its Contour Showcase since I got it.

A fantastic case

the iskins cover for the 20gig color. Thanks for mentioning the belt clips scratches the back of the ipod. I just removed mine. Initially I didn't notice that would be an issue. Too bad there isn't one with a belt clip that doesn't scratch it.

I'm a case-aholic, I love to dress up my ipod

two ipod socks, green & pink, love them!
incase folio, mostly used for traveling
incase argyle sleeve (green) - too cute not to buy
iskin - I think I used this for about a day, can't stand it
plain old black standard incase

I think that's it
