If youre looking for the ultimate iPod case, then check out this one. It features slots for just about every iPod produced including the U2 special edition, two Nanos, and even a pair of DJ headphones.
The only ones im missing is the 1G (back in 2001, in my oppinion 5GB was too limited) and the G3, the one with the four buttons above the clickwheel (the ugliest design of iPod), i never figured out why they came with that model.
This might be the first iPod case that costs more than the player itself. The Louis Vuitton Classic Ipod Cover by Takashi Murakami features peach natural calf leather lining, golden brass pieces, and a multicolor canvas. Pricing has not yet been set but we expect it to retail at around $285+.
You cant get much stranger than the iKitty. This cat-inspired silicone case features a bendable tail and a screen protector to prevent those annoying scratches.
Imagine putting your brand new iPod in one of these strange looking fur cases called Fluffpod made from super silky soft fluffpod signature fur and lined with silky soft satin. One question, arent cases supposed to protect your iPod?
Two white leather boots on the bottom of the case keep your iPod secure, with room for the dock connector to be attached without sacrificing your iPods safety, or comfort.
A Japanese modder created this custom 5mm Aluminum A5052 case for his iPod which can stop a 0.22 bullet to prevent it from being crushed by the handrail on those busy subway trains.
The two halves of the case are held together with chunky M3 hex bolts. Youd certainly need some muscle to carry it: at 446gram, it is 2.5 times the weight of a new iPod Photo
YoTank introduces a new line of military-grade digital audio player cases that can withstand a RPG or mortar shell explosion 85 percent of the time. Cases are machined from solid blocks of aluminum and fit the iPod Nano/Video/Mini or Creative Zen Vision:M players. Prices start at $35, more info here.

The ikitty looks a little weird to me.
A friend of mine wanted me to pick up some Ipod case when I was in Paris. It was designed like a silk hoodie sweatshirt, about US$200. I refused to buy it on principle.
I would have done the same! LOL
I read about another use for the iPod in Birders World last night that might force me to steal my iPod back from my grandson. You can down load Bird calls and songs and take it into the woods and if you hear a bird you don't see you play the the call on your Pod and most birds will come around to see who is challenging them. Of course you have to know a little about bird calls to start with... >:^(
Ummm............how do they hear it? Have to get close enough to put the earbuds on 'em?
Then they all suck!
I have quad speakers and a 600W amplifier on my trike.
I hook my iPod up to that.
I'd be happy to help the California birder.....from here....LOL!
If they came out with one of these in leopard spot or tiger stripe prints, your iPod could look like something carried by some pimp straight out of Starsky and Hutch.
