Commuter folio case ships
Pacific Rim Marketing has begun shipping the latest Commuter folio case for video iPod owners that includes a clear PVC envelope style pocket on the front inside cover designed to hold a subway pass, bus pass, or photo ID. The iPod is held in place with a reinforced leather pocket that provides complete access to all ports and controls. Users can charge the portable player without removing it from the case, and the reverse side of the sleeve features three pockets for credit cards. Another envelope-style pocket facing the credit card pockets stores cash, and is held securely by a leather strap that slides into a belt loop. A zippered compartment on the back side of the leather envelope offers ample space for earbud storage and management with metal posts for quick wrapping of earbud cords. The Commuter case ($60) works with 30GB, 60GB, and 80GB video iPod models.
