Pacific Rim Marketing is shipping its new
“Commuter,” a leather folio case for the video iPod. It’s available for $59.95.
The Commuter includes a clear PVC envelope-style pocket on the front inside cover, suitable for holding a subway pass or photo ID. The iPod is held in place with a reinforced leather pocket, which provides access to the iPod’s ports and controls. On the reverse side of the sleeve that holds the iPod are three pockets for credit cards. Facing those pockets is an envelope-style pocket suitable for cash, credit cards or other small objects. It’s closed and secured using a leather strap.
A zippered compartment on the backside of the envelope cash pocket provides space for earbuds; forged metal posts let you wrap excess cable. It’s large enough to fit the USB docking cable, according to the manufacturer.
The Commuter is available in several different finishes, including black, two-tone suede and “Black Diamond.”
