With a reinforced black neoprene cover, built-in belt loops, an armband, a clear plastic screen protector, and a removable swiveling belt clip, the Action Jacket mini offers protection for your iPod mini. It helps the mini resist scratches and can act as a shock absorber -- on the back and sides, at least -- in case of more serious bumps. A bottom opening gives you easy access to the dock connector, but the Velcro tab that secures your mini covers the hold button, which you likely access often to lock the player's controls. And the cutout that leaves the scroll wheel helpfully exposed doesn't fit perfectly over the wheel and tends to gape unattractively.--Dan Frakes
