PULL-i’s eponymous case for the iPod nano looks like nothing so much as a shrunken down version of a case for eyeglasses. Constructed of wool felt, and secured by a three-thread overlock seam, it has a single opening into which you slide your iPod — it’s basically a pouch. Once the nano’s inserted (upside down), only the headphone jack and dock connector are accessible. In order to use the front or top controls on the nano, you’ll have to remove the iPod from the PULL-i.
While so encased, though, the iPod is shielded by 2mm of wool, protecting it from scratches and all but the most forceful blows. The PULL-i would be a good choice for keeping your iPod nano in a purse or bag without fear. (It also has the advantage of looking fairly innocuous, which might make it less of an enticement for electronics thieves.)
The PULL-i lacks features such as a belt clip or loop, so it has to reside in a pocket, purse, or hand. Those wanting to control their iPod from inside the case should certainly look elsewhere, but for those in search of a solidly constructed pouch-style case for their iPod, the PULL-i just may do the trick.–Dan Moren
