The iSkin evo3 is a protective cover for the 5th generation video iPod. The case consists of a silicone body and a clear plastic faceplate.

Generally, the iSkin does its job well. I bought mine at the same time I bought my iPod. It has now been a year and a half, and my iSkin has taken a lot of abuse and looks a bit the worse for wear, but the iPod still looks pristine and white under the case. The iSkin is unique in that no part of the iPod is exposed except for the headphone jack: the click wheel is covered by a thin silicone skin and the dock connector is covered by a movable flap.

The biggest problem with this case is that it makes the hold button on the top basically useless. It is almost impossible to move the switch without partially removing the case, which can be a huge pain. However, if you can look past this fairly significant flaw, it's an excellent, durable iPod case.
