    Hi

    I need to protect my Nano, what do you advise is the best option, to suit these requirements

    *I don't want to add to the size/weights much so I am looking at something slim line and light
    *I want my Ipod to be fully functiontional with the skin/case fitted
    *I only need to protect it from scratches, and minor knocks, the case does not need to be bombproof - I dont plan on dropping my Nano

    Oh and the cheeper the better :D

    Hi Matrix the better half has a Nano and i just got her one of those film protectors and a Black skin off ebay , proper cheap and only a slight increase in the size. Its worked very well and i presume its scratch free as it aint been out of the skin to date.:smashin:

    Think both the clear film and the skin cost about a tenna off ebay , cheap and effective. Its also took some hammer as you what women are like with gadgets they just dont have the same loving tender respect us blokes have. Its "thrown" in her bag "dumped" in the car and "rammed" in the charging lead !!!!
    Girls and their toys eh !!!:D

    I bought my kids a couple for xmas,and got a pair of Contour iSee cases for them....a bit expensive at £20,but superb protection from a rigid acrylic case that fits beautifully.

    LOL definitely not...!

    Theyre actually very different products,although I have to say the idea of the film protection for my middle aged iPod does look rather interesting,esp when you can cover the wheel with it as well.

    I'll look into that as well...thanks.

    My brother has an ipod nano and i bought him an iSkin for it for christmas. Its cool, its is made of double thickness silicone and has a plastic protector for both the screen and click wheel.

    Cost me about £15 and came complete with an attached belt clip. Didnt add much to the size at all and looks way cool.
