Gecko Glove

At a Glance
  • Gecko Glove

Gecko's Glove is a silicone "skin" case for the 5G iPod (with video). It's similar to most skin cases on the market, but it has one feature that makes it unique: The outside of the case is covered by a series of raised lines that provide a better surface for gripping.

However, that's the only real "feature" of the Gecko Glove. Neither your iPod's screen nor its Click Wheel are protected, and there's no belt clip or way to attach a lanyard. On the other hand, most of the bottom of your iPod is exposed, making it easy to attach dock-connector accessories.

Although the Gecko Glove is inexpensive as skin cases go, its lack of features and protection mean there are better alternatives out there.--Derik DeLong
