DLO Relaxed Leather Cases for iPod 5G

Superb craftsmanship and high-grade materials make the DLO Relaxed Leather Case a poster child for the next wave of haute couture iPod accessories.

DLO Relaxed Leather Cases for iPod 5G

Quick Take: After reviewing so many subpar synthetic cases for the 5G Apple iPod, we were excited to finally introduce our iPod to a high-quality bodyguard: the Relaxed Leather Case by Digital Lifestyle Outfitters. These designer leather cases are cut from genuine rawhide and come in a series of six different rustic color ways with all the trimmings; choose from zigzags, football seams, rivets, or grommets to add a touch of western flare to your ensemble.

Right out of the box, the stamp of quality is in the rich leather smell and the supple texture of the case. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill leather. Careful details were put into the cut and design, which incorporate cutouts for the headphone jack and the connector plug, an integrated credit card pocket, a heavy-duty belt clip for secure mobility, and a magnetic flip-top case to shield your investment from damage. Note that there's no plastic screen cover as the flip top is the main protector. Not exactly form fitting, the case is cut into a rectangle, so there is a bit of bulk added to your player, but we'll consider it a small price to pay for luxury. Users will appreciate the fact that DLO has lined all its cases with soft felt to save the front and back of your iPod from unsightly scratches. It's this astute attention to detail that pushes the DLO Relaxed Leather Cases over and above the competition. Most importantly, at $34.99, these cases add a classy flavor to your iPod without depleting your savings.
