We searched dozens of websites and manufacturers to bring you this list of the best skins and cases for your iPod.
Most of them are available for different iPod models and all of them are still available for sale (We had to exclude some that are sold out). You will find an image, a short description and a link to the manufacturer web site, but if a particular skin or case is only available from an online shop you will find that link too.
A word on prices listed (we are NOT affiliated with any of the shops): Only the suggested retail / list prices are listed. Please check the web for the exact price. We have seen pretty good deals for some of the skins / cases online.
We could have called them all skins or all cases but we thought it might be easier to find them when the list is broken down into skins (=flat surface and often cheaper) and cases (can have structure or be an object) plus the following categories:
