XtremeMac TuffWrap for iPod shuffle

  • XtremeMac TuffWrap for iPod shuffle

XtremeMac's TuffWrap is yet another silicone "skin" for your iPod shuffle. Each 3-packs includes 3 different colors of TuffWrapz: white/blue/red, green/orange/light blue, or pink/yellow/purpose. Each case covers your entire iPod shuffle except for its front controls, which are left exposed. The controls on the back of the shuffle are covered with a very thin layer of silicone that allows you to still use those controls. We wonder about the long term durability of this thinner layer, as we've seen a few minor tears on other skin cases using similar designs; however, during our testing we saw no actual signs of wear. Matching covers are included for use with both of the shuffle's USB caps. Unfortunately, the headphone opening in the TuffWrap is too small for some larger third-party headphone plugs.

Thanks to a reasonably-priced 3-pack with matching cap covers, TuffWrapz are a good value.
