Proporta Leather Style Case for Apple iPod classic 2G review

£20 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Proporta

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

This iPod classic case does a pretty good job of looking like leather, with the tan interior particularly realistic.

There's no doubt that iPods need protection from bumps and scratches. But how much do you want to spend on a skin or case?

Proporta offers a range of cases for Apple iPods. Some, like the Ted Baker Leather Case, are rather luxurious.

Its Leather Style Protective Case (Apple 2G iPod classic 80GB/120GB) is similar but less posh - it's not real leather so the price is lower and vegetarians remain happy.

Proporta Leather Style Case for Apple iPod classic

This case does a pretty good job of looking like leather, with the tan interior particularly realistic.

There are the usual cut-outs for iPod cable and headphones, although the Hold slider is covered. (Some might say that stops accidental usage of the Hold slider; others would say it means you have to flip open the case to access it.) The case shuts with a slim magnetic clasp.

There's two interior slip pockets for cash, credit cards or travel cards - but no belt-clip option.
