How to Find Designer iPod nano Cases

May 13, 2008
Are you thinking about a designer iPod nano case for your 3G nano? I bought one yesterday and love mine.

The rest of us worry about getting our nano wet, or banged up, or just plain feeling overly geeky walking to school or work. There has to be a better way to carry it around, preferably with a little style.

You might not have thought about styling up your nano. Until a couple weeks ago I hadn't either. My friend showed me his leather flip case and I knew it was time to find something special for my nano too.

Reasonably Priced:

A simple start is to try a "leather look" case with a flip top. They come in a variety of colors and can be found for under $10. If you're on a tight budget this is a good start.

A small step up is the Kroo Manhattan faux leather. It has red topstitching to make it a little more memorable. Still, not the statement I was looking for when I was shopping.

For a step further, take a look at the cases by Cloe Dao. Edgy types might want the skull and crossbones emblem on one of her designs. Non-edgy me liked her pinstripe case in hot colors. I was looking for something a little more conservative for commuting to work -- but might try the colored case for weekend wear.

The Next Step Up:

The Sena Pullino case may not get you gasps of "style envy" but you'll never be embarassed by it either. This nano case is a clean design, made with European leather, and has a velvet lining to prevent scratching.

Pacific Designs and Marware have some good options in this price range too. They both target the multi-purpose case market and make a good product. Again, nothing to get noticed, but will do the job. (Actually, Marware does have a leather flipcase that's pretty nice if you want something along the "simple but not ostentatious" lines.)


If you like the glittery look (evening?) check out the Gilty Cotoure 3G nano case. It comes in silver or gold plating, with Swarovski Crystal accents. The crystal accents frame the screen and control wheel. Surprisingly tasteful and still special. If you have a 8Gb nano, this case is just slightly less than the cost of your nano. But then, you weren't concerned about that anyway were you?

My favorite in this class: the difusi holder with napa leather and snakeskin. It has a magnetic closure and does a nice job of protecting the nano. I don't use belt clips, but this has one if you want to show it off on your belt. Also a plus: the price is around $40.

I hoped to find designs for my 3G nano by Coach, Dior, or Prada (they have them for the 2G nano. No such luck. Maybe they'll have something out for the holidays.

I love my Difusi 3G nano holder. It's a nice designer case conservative enough for being near my office building but still has a "something special" look. I think I'll buy a Cloe Dao next month for my play time too.

Show your style! No matter your price range, you have options to choose from and can look like you have a 3G iPod nano designer case too.
