Simply put, if you only ever use Apple earbuds and you only ever use your iPod while you're out walking or something, this would be fine for you, but if you ever want to charge it and use it at the same time, plug it into an iPod enabled stereo, or use anything but Apple earbuds, don't even bother, just get something else.
If you just want use this for managing the earphone cable for on-body use, this is a very clever and well made solution. In my case it didn't work for attaching to Mobility Kit for the dash or the bike. I would suggest placing a small piece of thin ethafoam inside the top the Sidewinder to keep the Nano from rattling around.
However, when receiving the actual product I saw encountered flaws and drawbacks. First, the case was light plastic and felt pretty cheap. I currently use an iSkin case (iSkin Nano 2nd Generation - Groove Pack). It is composed of harder plastic and rubber, which feels more substantial (and perhaps more able to withstand a drop) than the Sidewinder. Furthermore, the plastic on the face of the Sidewinder was lightly scratched, apparently just from rubbing against the inside of its packaging.
I saw the above as just minor drawbacks. The big problem for me: there is a piece of plastic which covers the bottom of the Nano, where the headphone/earbud jack is located. There is a hole in this plastic to allow you to plug the earbuds into the iPod. Standard iPod earbuds fit fine. However, I do not use the standard iPod earbuds. I tried plugging in both Koss earbuds (Koss SPARKPLUG - Stereo In Ear Ear Plugs) and Shure E2c earphones (Shure E2c-n Sound Isolating Earphones (Black)). Neither fit because their jacks do not have the same shape as the standard iPod earbud jack.
I consider this a major problem. Because of this, I sent the product back for a refund.
