Product Description

Amazon.com

Griffin's Elan Form is an elegant hard-shell leather case, shaped to perfectly fit your iPod classic. The shell's form-fitting design bonds top-grain leather to durable, protective polycarbonate, to encase your iPod in two layers of protection. The top-grain leather outer shell is crafted from hand-matched hides, while the polycarbonate inner shell surrounds your iPod with armor. Put your iPod in the top casing, then snap the back into place. To open the case, insert a coin (a quarter works best) into the notch in the bottom corner and twist gently.

All this protection still affords easy access to the click wheel or touchscreen, dock connector, headphone port, and hold switch. Elan Form is available in sizes to fit the third-generation iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch.

This case, simply put, is perfect for what I need it for and works well with my ipod 7th generation. It has no obstruction on the bottom so the dock is completely free, hence you can attach whatever peripherals you may want which is great because I often attach a bluetooth adapter to pair it to my Etymotic Research Ety8 Bluetooth Stereo Wireless In-Ear Earphones. The case itself fits with zero space between the case/ipod so it's got a very solid feel, and the hold switch and 3.5mm jack are also fairly accessible. The leather feels pretty good, clearly not premium quality but certainly not crappy pleather so often found in "leather" items. The screen protector is built into the face of the case and doesn't obstruct or alter the image. As for the "problem" of removing the case, I really can't understand where some of the other reviewers are coming from, taking it off (to clean away dust/debris/etc) is a breeze. You just look at the bottom right corner, pry the case apart with your fingers at that tiny built-in gap, and it pops off without issue.

Overall, you'd be hard pressed to find another ipod classic case of this quality for less than 8 bucks. Very satisfied.

I am very pleased with this purchase of the leather case for my ipod. It protects the screen like I wanted and fits snugly around the ipod. I was concerned that it might keep coming off but I carry it around in my bag and have not had it come off, infact I have to make a concerted effort to remove it when I want to take it off.

I would definitely recommend this product.

This is a good case, and offers moderate protection to the iPod. It fits very well, looks and feels great, and the leather covered plastic shell offers pretty good protection. It comes with 2 backs to fit the older and newer versions of the 6G iPods. Mine came with a slight flaw that prohibits me from giving it 5 stars though. The plastic screen protector on mine has a smudge on it that can't be removed. It is probably a quality control issue, and I've thought about exchanging it. So far, I'm living with it though. All in all, this is still a very good case.

I bought the 7th gen 160gb about two weeks ago (9/12/2010) and was looking very very extensively online, Ebay and Amazon, for cases because my last Ipod was dying its last breath. So I stumbled across this, and honestly, the $2.49 price tag was the first thing that pulled at me...but let's get to the REAL review.
So when i opened up the box, there are two different back cases, one for the 80gb Ipod classic as well as the 160gb Ipod classic (I think the 160gb is the smaller one, you will figure it out whe you lock it in. There is one front cover that is a hard shell leather covering and has a screen on it so your original Ipod screen stays protected. So for protection and look, I give it a 4.9 out of 5. Putting on both covers took a bit of time because I was trying to see which back cover worked for my Ipod. Oh and the front and back cover is black like the picture.
Onto the accessibility. The best part I think about this case is that EVERYTHING is completely accessible. I'm talking about the "hold" button, the headphone port, the adapter jack on the bottom of the Ipod, and most importantly, the click wheel is perfectly accessible. So I would give the accessibility a 5 out of 5.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the speed and efficiency of the product and would like to thank the "1 to 3 shop" for sending me a wonderful Ipod case that I will keep for years to come.

Reminds me a lot of my custom Vaja Designs case which I paid big bucks for. The dock connector is well exposed at the bottom, which is bad if you want full coverage, but great if you need to attach numerous peripherals without taking the case off. Happy with this purchase!

I upgraded to a new 120GB Ipod and decided I had enough with the "usual cases". I read the reviews, and purchased this hard shell case. Not only does it look good, it protects the ipod just fine. If you are one that removes your ipod from its case frequently to dock it or whatever, this case might not be for you. The case, once it's on the ipod is very difficult to remove. This case is best for putting it on and leaving it on. The one problem I encountered was that my ipod would not fit into my Bose soundock with the case on. I use my Bose often. I debated whether to return it but was split, because it looked soooo good. I invested in a ipod dock extender cable from "Cable Jive" (here on Amazon) and problem solved. I never remove the ipod from its case and thus it's always protected and I dock it to my bose effortlessly.

Against my better judgement, and the negative reviews read, I decided to order this case. It was a very bad idea, and waste of money. The case looks great, and it seems it would do a good job, but the quality of the case as far as how it goes together is very shoddy. The case comes with two backs, one for the larger size ipod, and the other for the smaller ipod. The one I need is the smaller back for my 7th Gen. 160gb ipod. The smaller back and the top part of the case won't stay connected together, even with the ipod not in the case. They just pop apart. Its like they don't fit. Very poorly made. The larger back will stay connected until its bumped, and then it just pops apart. This is no good at all. Apparantly there was no product testing done on this case before it left the factory. DON'T BUY!!
