$45 next day international delivery, though I got 2 for the price so it's very good

you get the rubber case, belt clip, screen protector and a zip case

I ordered the carbon color on Sept. 8 and it arrived today. I'm very satisfied with it so far.

Looks nice but how do you place the iPod on the dock with the iSkin on?

I orderd one too and it's coming in today. Unfortunately, my iPod's been scratched up since I've been using it without a case. Uggh.

I won't take the iPod out of the house until mine comes in (should be tomorrow). I've been carrying it around in a lens cloth until it comes in. I know, I'm pathetic.

seeing as it's a 20gig 4G it didn't come with a dock so I'm not bothered

Lajo of xskn is making dock compatible stuff but he's not up to shipping everything yet. I used a Lajo zipcase whilst waiting for the iSkin and it did an ok job. Stopped scratches, wouldnt stop serious damage.

I'd seen things like this before but until recently i hadn't seen one in real life. Now i can't imagine anyone owning an iPod and not owning one of these babies, they're awesome. No more scratched iPods!!? Well i'd like to hope so.

I've got the artic iSkin for my 20gb 4G. I had never seen one before ordering but just read various reviews and user comments. I must say that it looks very nice and I have no concerns whatsoever about getting a scratch on my beloved iPod. Also, one benefit of the silicon case is that the iPod no longer slides around in my car. Highly recommend.

That's not pathetic... i carried mine around in the cloth bag my oakley sunglasses came in until my case arrived about 4 days ago. btw, i have the contour designs case. very nice if anyone is looking for a hard case.

I don't really care about scratches, but I'm thinking of getting a case nonetheless if it doesn't fuglify my iPod. A transparent case would be great, but I guess I could always use saran wrap if I really wanted to.

I am not a big fan of the iSkin's...I have only bought my iPod cases from Lajo. They are superb. I would recommend them to anyone.

I placed an order for an iskin evo2 4G case, unfortuanately I mistakenly ordered the evo2 20Gig 4G case when I actually meant to order the evo 2 40Gig 4G case. I did not realize the error until I finally received it so now I had to send it back and am waiting for my replacement.
