If you're looking for the ultimate in crushproof protection, look no more. A molded aluminum shell that encases the entire iPod, the iPod Armor also cushions your iPod -- and prevents scratches -- with a layer of dense foam inside. Openings at the top provide access to the headphone/remote jack and hold switch, and a removable rubber plug at the bottom provides access to the dock connector when used with dock connector iPods. An Armor Clip belt clip -- which requires you to affix a permanent "stud" to the back of the case if you decide to use it -- is also included. We haven't yet tried to drive our car over our iPod to see if the iPod Armor would keep it safe, but we've been tempted.
