I have been searching for a decent case for my iPod Video 80Gb. There is actually nothing comparable to Marware when it comes to sports. The case is consisting of 3 main parts. The case with the transparent front side that allows full access to iPod buttons, the outer shell that is hard enough to protect your iPod even from a severe fall and the armband. You can have it anyway you like. If you intent to run for a long time , put it on with the hard outer cover. When I go to gym I like to frequently change the songs so I need to have access via the main case that actually provides also protection to sweat and light rain. My iPod is "naked" without it.

This iPod armband does exactly as it's supposed to, and is very comfortable - no complaints.
Where I am worried though is the material splitting or cracking, because I own a 160GB Classic iPod, and it's a tight fit. You have to tug and massage the casing over the iPod to make it fit, and I'm wondering how long it will continue to take such punishment, and whether or not these will be covered on the "lifetime" guarantee.
That aside, great thing to have, if a little pricey.
