  • Fruitshop Bone Collection Nano 3 Wrap

We've tested a number of Fruitshop's Bone iPod cases in the past, many of which incorporate unique features. The company's $18 Nano 3 Wrap (includes an integrated wrap for your iPod earbuds. The raised markings over the Click Wheel controls are a nice touch, as well, and the open bottom of the case lets you get at the iPod's dock-connector port, hold switch, and headphone jack.

However, the Nano 3 Wrap suffers from having only a thin, adhesive film for keeping your screen safe. And though the cable wrap on the back of the case is a useful addition for those who use the iPod's stock earbuds, or even some other earbud-style headphones, it's not terribly helpful to those with other types of headphones. We also experienced some of the same difficulties using the Click Wheel's scrolling functionality as we did with the TuffWrap Plus. If the cable wrap is useful to you, then the Nano 3 Wrap is a decent option, but if you don't use earbuds, there's really no reason for it.--Dan Moren
