Rugged iPod Sportcase for All iPod Users

Need rugged iPod protection? Otter Products, LLC. completes the OtterBox for iPod line-waterproof, interactive cases designed for Apple iPod 20GB, 30/40/60GB, mini and recently the iPod shuffle.

Whether biking, hiking, boating, working out or just relaxing at the beach, the OtterBox for iPod family provides vital protection for active lifestyles. Retail prices range from $29.95-$49.95.

"Available in a variety of sizes, the OtterBox for iPod safeguards expensive music collections no matter where your adventures take you. With cases available for the iPod, iPod photo, mini and now the shuffle, OtterBox offers the most complete line of iPod protection on the market," said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC.

With durable yet compact designs, the OtterBox for iPod enables users to take their music virtually anywhere. Innovative rubber lining inside the case cradles the iPod and an easy-open, yet secure-close, latch adds additional protection. Each case contains a waterproof headphone jack that facilitates use with any style headphone. When combined with waterproof headphones, the OtterBox for iPod can even go swimming.

The OtterBox for iPod mini, 20GB, and 30/40/60GB, enable user interaction with the iPod Click Wheel through a clear membrane on the front of the case. A hard screen cover shields the display and offers drop-protection and screen visibility. An included belt clip on the back allows hands-free carrying and integrated headphone cable management. For more flexibility, an armband is available for $14.95.

Slightly different from the other cases, the OtterBox for iPod shuffle enables iPod control access through a flexible, rubber button on the front. On the back, a clear window offers visibility of the on/off switch and a rubber button provides battery check access. The case also includes a removable neck lanyard for added convenience. An optional armband retails for $14.95.

First released in 2004, the original Otter Products iPod case was well received by iPod owners. Customer feedback offered valuable information about design and functionality, and the waterproof case line entered the market.

Otter Products, founded in 1998, has a complete line of cases for technology including PDAs, Tablet PCs and other valuables.
