iStyles' Silicone Video is a silicone "skin" case available in eight different colors: blue, black, white, green, pink, red, purple, and silver. The case leaves your iPod's screen exposed, but the screen is protected by a thin, clear adhesive screen protector. (A cleaning cloth and application card are included.) Openings provide access to your iPod's headphone port, hold switch, and dock connector, as well as the dock-connector port on the bottom.

A small protrusion on one of the bottom corners lets you attach a lanyard, and two slits run along the back for sliding a belt through. The Click Wheel is covered, but the material is thin enough that complete control is maintained. Unlike many silicone cases, the case feels extremely smooth under one's touch; it's a pleasure to use.

iStyles' Silicone case is very usable and comfortable. It's only real flaw is an inconvenient belt loop apparatus.
