I had my Nano a year or so before I got my full blown Ipod. It is a good idea to start with a Nano as you are testing the water to see if you need an MP3 player. Though they do not store as many songs, the Nano is handy for people who want a smaller device to take to the gym, on a train or just to shove into a back pocket while doing the dusting. I had my Nano for three months before I was conscious it was getting covered in scratches and smears. The smears were not a problem, as a tissue would clear these, but scuff marks were beginning to ruin the look of the player.
I bought one of these sleeves online and it cost me five pounds. This seemed like a good price to me, especially if one considers some of the cloth wallets alone can sell for ten pounds or more. What you get for your hard earned money is a tight fitting leather sleeve that wraps around the Nano. You can buy them in black, but I do believe now that other colours are available, I think I have seen a purple one.
The sliding motion onto the Nano is straight forward enough and it clasps the device very tightly, ensuring a snug fit all around. My Nano still had the front dial exposed and the screen so you could access the features easily, but the back was nicely hidden away. It is usually the reverse side that gets the scratches, where you lie it down.
It is easy to take off should you need to, but once mine was on, it stayed on. It is lightweight, it looks stylish and it made transporting the Nano a safe business. I used to take it to the gym in the case and it was good to know it was protected at all times. There is little I would alter here. The design work is impressive and robust and the look is just what one would desire.
