View Full Version : Ideal skin for iPod w/ Video
03-05-2006, 09:01 PM
I have a question for those who have been using the recent iPod with Video. I'm looking for a skin for the 60GB model that is as thin and unobtrusive as possible. I really don't want to make the player significantly bigger/thicker than it already is. Idealy the skin would maintain the aesthetic beauty of the player, but that's not my highest priority. I'm considering the adhesive film-type skins that you wrap around the player, but would like to get other ideas as well.
What have people been using and any ideas on a good skin?

By 'skin', do you also mean the clear type that just stick on to the iPod?
I have the "Martin Fields" protector on my iPod. I have no complaints other than the fact that the clickwheel protector doesn't ever stay on. Not really sure how good of a protection job it does, because it is kind of my second line of defense.
I also have the "SkinTight" product from Speck. I would recommend that you stay away from that, given what you said you want in one. It definately makes it larger.

I really like the skin I got from bestskinsever.com http://www.bestskinsever.com/servlet/StoreFront
good clear skin, went on easily, doesn't get in the way of anything at all, and protects very well

Best $25 I ever spent to protect my iPod.

i use the Kensington case to cover up my iPod color. The reason why I like it is because everything is covered up, the wheel and the screen. It just a cloth (suede?) skin and its really thin, so i dunno if it'll protect the iPod from droppage, but from dirt and dust it'll do wonders.

There are some great ideas here. I'm willing to risk dmage from impact to achieve maximum portability. Hey, Irish, I'm curious to see what your skin is, but your link doesn't seem to work. Can you check it? thanks.
edit: managed to find it:

There's a thread here at G|A that has pictures of it... It was a while back when the video iPods first came out.
Meh... I'm to lazy to find it right now... I know I posted in it along with Spigs I think...
BTW, it is just as durable as their video shows. I've had mine for a couple of months now and have yet to scratch the plastic.... and I treat my iPod like crap.
I also had them custom make a shield for my Canon SD450 LCD. Works great as well...
