Welcome to me and Gelaskin that iPod

My very first post! Are you as excited as me? Clearly not… let's get on to some cool stuff, then.

Long have the iPod faithful decked their preferred players in protective covers that have A) bulked them up, making them far less the portable than the devices we so love and B) made them look like big, rubber Fisher Price toys. This isn't how it was supposed to be.

Gelaskins offer a skindeep-endorsed alternative. These thin skins are made from a tough 3M material that is easy to remove, should the mood take you, and they come in myriad impressive designs. I'm particularly taken with the Hokusai Great Wave Nano skin. They're available for old Nano, current Nano, Mini and video iPod alike.

Of course, they won't offer any shock protection, so don't be surprised if your Gelaskinned Nano fails the 'dropped down ravine' test. £10, here.
