I bought this to match my new greed ipod and also specifically to porotect it while I travelled on business. It is perfect for this, the little case has a detachable neat neck strap, preventing you from dropping it when you are sat on a flight with loads of magazines on your lap and then you stnd up to let someone out, you forget about the ipod and it drops on the floor! Been there, done that!! I keep my plugs in the sock and so all in all very useful and a brilliant pice for the quality. Prompt delivery too and my kids want one now...so it must be ok!
