    I am curious as to what do people use to protect their iPods here?

    I use an XtremeMac Microshield clear plastic case to protect my iPod, It even comes with a fake plastic iPod to boot. I must admit to flashing the fake plastic iPod around school saying "Look they make them so hightech, you can see right through it!" :D :apple:

    Though what really gets me is how much of that $24.95 went to the making of the fake plastic iPod rather than the case itself.

    Link below to the case I use with my iPod:

    Used iSkin with my 3G, worked but hated it. I currently use the ipod socks and they are amazing, honestly no scratches and is almost 6 months old. (bought it in mid november 2006, 5.5 Gen) Really those sock seem to not protect it, but they do, and they don't compromise design, others ruin Apple essence.

    iPod Sock. They are perfect for preventing scratches. Super cool as well.

    Blue for my first gen Mini, Grey one on the way for my iPodtouch... If your interested.

    the best...

    InvisibleShield, is it a bit ridiculous it cost's $25? Maybe... but with a Lifetime Guarantee, plus the fact that it totally protects the entire device against any and all scratches while not taking away from the form factor makes it totally worth it. Why buy a case or something like that when part of what makes the iPod so great is it's slim and sleek design! :rolleyes:

    Invisible Shield! Easily the best option, in my opinion, protects as well as a case and adds zero bulk. I took in my broken iPod video for recycling at the store (had it since it came out) and when I took the skin off it looked brand new.

    I picked up the skin from BESTSKINSEVER.COM

    Same stuff as invisibleSHIELD but the full shield cost me $8.00. How can ya beat that? Everyone keeps walking by my desk at working saying that I really need to get something to protect my video...i just laugh and show em that it already is :)
