PDAir now has hard shell protection for your Apple iPod nano with their silver and black anodized aluminum cases. These are play through cases that totally enclose the nano to help guard against everyday wear and tear that the average Joe and JoAnn can dish out.

These cases are molded and sized to perfectly fit the nano. They are lined with cushioning Neoprene and have accurate cutouts for the click wheel, hold switch and dock area.

The display has a clear plastic window over it to help keep it from scratching.

On the bottom at the back of the case, there is a cutout that can accommodate the included neck strap. If you want to turn your nano into a necklace, here’s your chance!

This case is hinged on the right side and opens like a book. The latch snaps securely shut on the left side. The case is pretty slippery, so opening the latch can be a little difficult.

Accessing all the features while my nano was housed in this case posed no problems. Using the click wheel to navigate through my tunes was just as easy while in this case as it was while the nano was outside the case. Syncing and charging with a dock or cable was equally easy. The only problem I encountered during the review period was trying to use this case with my DLO TransPod. The metal case created just enough distance between the connectors that I would get intermittent failures. This is not the fault of this case, but just something to keep in mind if you don’t like to take your digital audio player in and out of its case to use other accessories.

All in all, this is a nice accessory to protect your scratch magnet otherwise known as the nano.

The silver version of this case is $25, while the black version is $27.
