Need case recommendations for the 5th Generation Ipod Nano

I'm looking to buy a Nano in the near future, but because I tend to be clumsy, especially with valuables, I figured it'd be best to buy a case first. What I'm looking for is total protection rather than a skin that leaves the screen unguarded. It'd be nice to cover the wheel as well, but I'm not sure if that's possible.

Any suggestions?

    Honestly? Nanos are hardy little devices. My 2nd gen iPod nano has occupied my pocket 12 hours a day for well over 3 years now with essentially no detriment to its functionality or appearance. It's fallen from heights of up to 10' onto concrete with no trouble (the thing's just not heavy enough to accumulate any substantial momentum). There are a few scratches in the back, but they're barely visible under all but the contrast-iest of light. The screen is still perfect.

    It's not like the iPod will be worth anything in three weeks anyways. I've found cases do nothing but make me enjoy the device less without actually saving my devices any harm.

    Tangential advice, but hopefully useful.
