Radtech’s Gelz for iPod 5G is a silicone “skin” case for your 5G iPod (with video), available in two sizes (30 GB and 60/80 GB) and six different colors (blue, green, pink, yellow, white, and bronze). The silicone itself is rather thin, with an even thinner section covering the click wheel for improved control response. Your iPod’s hold switch, headphone port, and screen, and nearly the entire bottom edge, are exposed while in the case. No protection is offered for the iPod’s screen and the case’s material has trouble keeping its shape around the screen. A small loop in the silicone near one of corners allows the included lanyard to be attached. The back features slots through which a belt can be threaded.
The Gelz case is thin and includes a lanyard, but it also lacks screen protection, has trouble maintaining its shape, and offers minimal shock protection.–Derik DeLong
