Incase' Neoprene Sleeve for the iPod nano is made mainly of neoprene, though the front and back feature heavier plastic panels stitched to the stretchy sleeve material. An opening lets you access the Click Wheel, but Incase thoughtfully protects the screen with a flexible plastic window. The back of the case has a fixed belt clip, oriented upside down from the nano.


To insert the nano into the case, you insert it from bottom, then fasten a Velcro strip to keep the nano from slipping out. The fastener covers the dock-connector port, but lets you get at the hold switch and headphone jack. You can, however, sync or charge the nano without taking it out of the case by simply unfastening the Velcro.

I like the addition of the sturdy belt clip, but it does add a decent amount of bulk to the case, as does the external stitching on the neoprene around the case's edges. However, the sleeve does a good job of both protecting the nano and leaving its controls accessible. For those in search of a sporty, resilient case, the Neoprene Sleeve is a very respectable option.
