I picked this up at a best buy and it is everything I wanted in a case. I looked at lots of others online and too bad no one else reviewed this.

pros
+ leather seems real and looks nice
+ fits my 80gb like a glove!!
+ inner lining is soft and doesn't scratch my ipod!
+ screen protector is tough and doesn't interfere with picture quality
+ the folio part protects the click wheel and screen protector
+ stands up well on moderately rough surfaces
+ modifiable belt clip - can be regular, horizontal, or removed
+ doesn't add too much bulk, - fits in my pocket easily
+ decently padded to protect from dropping

Con
- the only bad thing about it is the whole for the earphones doesn't line up perfectly and you have to take them out to stand it up

overall great!!! The only other thing that would be nice is if it had a magnet to keep it shut, but it isn't necessary at all, it would just be cool.

I had been using another case for a a few years (DLO HipCase Leather Folio Case for 80/120/160 GB iPod classic 6G (Black), but for some reason it was unavailable on Amazon for a couple of months. Meanwhile, my older DLO was starting to wear out completely. Finally, I realized I had to replace it.

So, I got the Griffin Elan as a replacement. I was initially only mildly displeased with it. The leather wasn't quite as nice as the DLO but was OK. The biggest problem was the piece of "protective" plastic over the viewscreen. I was immediately unhappy with the glare that the plastic caused. As time went on I was unhappy with the plastic because it picked up dust, making it even more difficult to see the screen.

Finally, I've come to dislike the case because after only a short period of time it has started to show wear to the hinge of the cover.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. The DLO case costs about ten dollars more, but it is definitely worth it. It is more attractive, made with a higher quality leather, and comes without the irritating plastic over the viewscreen. I'll keep using the Griffin Elan until it wears out, but that shouldn't take too long. A very disappointing product.

I just bought this case today. It is very slick. It covers the screen great it does not cover the wheel at all but that isn't a big deal to me. I have seen a lot of reviews here about the case not closing. People have suggested that they put a magnet on it. However, you have to realize that your ipod is essentially a hard drive. That hard drive is about .5 inches away from your case or less if you put a magnet on the case it would most definitely interfere with you hard drive and disrupt its ability to operate correctly. If you don't believe me put a magnet on your tower or if you are using a laptop place one by the hard drive you will immediately see the effects take place. remove the magnet! If this does not work with immediate results just take a look at this case made for the ipod touch. They put a magnet on it, check out the amazon reviews you will see. If you really want the flap to stay close I suggest doing what I have done. Take off the belt clip. The easiest way of doing this is to remove the flap then remove the belt clip and then put the flap back in place. Then carry it at work, at the gym, wherever you'd like but make sure to carry it in your pocket! I prefer carrying it in my cheek pocket but do not sit on it. After about 6 hours of doing this at work I noticed that the flap stayed closed it was not bowed out like when I first got it. I will put the clip back on it tonight and wear it on my belt and it will look a lot better than if I would have just clipped it right away. I have received many compliments on this case already from my first day wearing it at work. I recommend this case to everyone with an ipod classic. I also had no problem with wearing my head phones with the flap closed just had to wiggle it a little to put the cord in. Also i was able to open the flap and operate my ipod with the cord already being in it. closed flap to open flap I mean. This is a great case and a great price can't beat it.

I have had a griffin case like this one for 6 years before it finally died <elastic wore out> . Over the past 6 years of use i have dropped, scrapped, overheated, and even had it freeze. My case has lasted threw 9 iPods, over 2 dozen trips, a good soaking in acetone, and paint thinner, a dog chewing on it , and 5 years working in a mill. I will only buy griffin cases for my phones, iPods, and any other gadget i can get one for. The case is durable and strong. The leather over the belt tab isn'n even worn out.

I've used this case for about a year or so and it still looks brand new. The leather has not worn, the clip has not weakened or loosened, and the case still protects my iPod from the occasional drop or bump. My iPod still somehow gets smudged and greasy which I can see when I pull it out, but it's obviously not noticeable under the case, and nothing permanent. Does not scratch the iPod sliding in or out, and overall it's a great product. I do not even think about replacing it with another product yet.

I like a case that protects the whole ipod. It does the job nicely. I took a star off because other cases I've owned with this exact same style had a magnet that kept the flap closed and this one doesn't. Kind of an important omission, but otherwise the case is nice.
