The cult of the Ipod case is a lot bigger than most imagine. Colleagues of mine sometimes have competitions to see who has the least scratches and then discuss the best means of transporting the iPod without scratching. For those of us who don t really care, then this case is perfect. It is knitted out of chain mail and a great accessory for your next for any renaissance fair or S&M meeting. You wouldn t believe how many people in the world are worried about their Ipod getting hit with a sword or axe and want proper protection.

It does contain a belt loop so the Ipod can be displayed with honor on the outside of your body armor. There's also enough room for all relevant Ipod accessories.
