Agent 18’s Classic Shield encases your iPod classic in a sturdy layer of clear polycarbonate, via front and back pieces that snap together; a shallow back section fits the 80GB classic, while a deeper back is included for use with the 160GB classic. The clear design protects your iPod’s screen, although the case leaves the Click Wheel exposed for easy access. The entire bottom edge of your iPod is also unobstructed, which allows you to use many bottom-mounted dock-connector accessories without having to remove your iPod from the case.
The Classic Shield is also available in a Kit package that includes a stand (for watching video), a stainless-steel belt clip, and a dock insert that lets you use your Shield-encased iPod classic with accessories, such as speakers, that feature Apple’s Universal dock-cradle design. However, the Classic Kit is sold in separate versions for the 80GB and 160GB iPod classic.–Dan Frakes
