the ipod slides in perfectly although it does not securely hold the unit. holding you ipod from the side and turning it upside down will tend to slide the nano out of the case... side buttons are not easily accessible with this case as well specially the middle button for skipping or replaying the songs...

Update:

I was surprised to get a call from the seller inquiring about the problem (I usually contact them first before anything gets resolved and usually these calls turns out unpleasant). She offered a replacement right away suggesting that I may have gotten a defective item. Two days after the call I got the replacement and to my surprise this one does not let the ipod nano slides out when holding it upside down.

This purchased has been an A+ experience for an outcome of quality product and customer experience.

Size Name: S1 SeriesColor Name: Green
Update: Roocase now makes a true spring clip case: rooCASE Hybrid Silicone Detachable Holster and it comes in colors!

Why put a clip on if it won't hold onto anything? Not only that but it takes two hands just to pry the clip up. The only thing this case is good for is mild protection and making the wafer thin new nano easier to hold on to.

People seemed confused by my original brief review... So to try to clarify, the clip is not spring-tensioned in any way except by the resistance provided by the plastic material where it bends out from the cutout in back. As such, it is really more of a hook than a clip, and will only work right side up on something thin, like the edge of a pocket. If that's all you want from a clip, that might be fine. But I was used to the old nano which had a fantastic spring clip that I could clip to my shirt in bed as I wore it to sleep. Resigned to just using it as a hook on a pocket when walking now, it is still a frustrating design because the bottom of the clip is indented into the cutout that it was formed from, with very little edge sticking up to lift it with, and when you touch it it just bends down into the cutout because there's so little tension. So you have to hold the sides of the clip and pry it up to hook it onto anything, which is why it takes two hands. IMHO the design just needs more work, and they prioritized looks over functionality.

To summarize:
Cons: hook, not clip. Hard to open clip, yet doesn't hold securely.
Pros: looks nice, pretty colors, fits well.
Alternatives: I bought a minisuit clip case, which doesn't look as pretty but has an actual functioning spring tensioned clip. B00A0QSLJG Unfortunately it broke after 8 months of use.
Update 10/2013: Now Roocase makes a spring clip case, going to try this one: rooCASE Hybrid Silicone Detachable Holster

I use my iPod Nano (7th generation) primarily for exercising. I run on a treadmill and I needed a case that clips to my clothing and is easily accessible to change songs, volume, etc. It holds the IPod well, not loosening or falling out as I had hoped. The volume keys on the side are a little tight and take a little getting used to but it works and it was a good price. Again I received this item from Amazon very quickly.

If you are like me, and were on edge about getting the 7th gen Nano for the storage capacity, but also wanted the convenience of the clip on the shuffle, look no more. This case solves both my issues perfectly. It isn't bulky as most iPod/iPhone cases tend to be and does not add any weight, great for the gym!

Quick notes:
- I purchased the 'frost clear' case. I was afraid it would look like frosted glass but it is entirely clear (I believe it should be advertised as 'clear'). I'm happier the way it is, because I didn't want to cover my red iPod's color.

- As stated in another review, the screen isn't entirely covered so it may be still prone to scratches and cracks. However, rooCASE also sells a plastic film to protect the case that I have purchase. Hope this resolves my problem!

I recently installed this case on a 7th gen Nano; installation was (literally) a snap, and fit appears to be excellent. Only time will tell how it actually protects, but I do like the molded-in clip on the back, and the minimalist form, as well as the lightly frosted clear allowing the original color to show through.

For the low price, I wasn't expecting much. But this case has a really nice feel-- fit and finish are very good quality. The plastic has just the right amount of rubbery flex to allow the clip to work without it being too brittle or too loose. The 2 rounded sides hold the nano securely.

The bottom is near-entirely open with only a tiny "nub" providing a stopper when the nano is slid down into the case. While this allows excellent access to the lightening and headphone connections, and allows you to dock the nano with the case on, I do wish the little stopper nub covered more of the bottom for greater peace of mind (but thus far, it's serving it's job fine).

Like the previous reviewer mentioned, the only real drawback are that the side volume controls are a tad bit difficult to press. This isn't really so much a drawback of the case as it is of the nano itself. If you press the buttons straight on (rather than from above or below), they will still function fine.

I bought a new nano and this case, as I thought it would work well with the Nike+ feature. Before I even got to use them, my hubby took it for a run to try out the tracking features. Unfortunately, he did so without noticing that this case doesn't really have a bottom, and wasn't using the headphones. Really, why would you design this case without a bottom? Halfway through the run, he looked down to discover the case was empty. So now someone else has a new nano and I have an empty case.

I use this case as part of my running gear...its durable and keeps my nano well protected. I haven't run into the sliding issues that some other have written about (and I hope I never do).

Would recommend for use on running or any other type of fitness activity if you're using the 7thG Nano.

I bought this case so that I could listen to my new iPod the gym. I clipped it to the waistband of my workout pants, which worked okay while I was using the cardio machines. However, once I did any exercise involving bending at the waist (lifting weights and sit-ups), the clip fell loose and my iPod fell to the floor. This happened about four times during the one workout in which I used this case. I am really sad that the case for my old-style iPod is not available for the newer iPod; it was much better than this case!

In a nutshell, the case works fine if you use it while stationary or moving in an upright position, but watch out if you bend over to tie your shoes!

I received this case 2 days ago. It is excellent for my Nano seventh generation and I am thrilled! It has a nice tight fit but doesn't interfere with anything, not even bluetooth. A great product. I can now clip my Nano on my shorts while I walk on the treadmill, and know it is secure! Thanks to rooCase for making a great product, the seller for carrying it, and to Amazon for the fast ship!
