Digital Lifestyle Outfitters
(DLO) on Wednesday announced the release of three new HipCase carrying cases for Apple’s newest models of iPod nano, iPod touch and iPod classic. Each costs $29.99.
The HipCase comes in three different versions: a leather folio version for all three iPod models, a nylon version specifically for the iPod touch, and a sleeve model specifically for the iPod touch.
The HipCase folio for the iPod nano features a padded leather cover that flips open and a clear play-through window. The folio version will attach to clothes, a backpack or briefcase. The versions for the classic and the touch are similar in design to the iPod nano. Each includes a pocket on the inside flap for carrying an ID, cash or credit card, and each offers access to iPod controls.
The HipCase nylon version for the iPod touch features a belt clip for horizontal placement and a velcro tab and center notch for one-handed iPod access. It features a nylon body with rubber accent, and also has a hidden inside pocket for ID or credit card. Corner notches provide access to the iPod’s earbud jack.
The HipCase sleeve is a leather case with soft inner lining. It has an open design that lets you access all iPod controls, and ships with a “Surface Sheet” to protect the iPod touch’s face.
