iPod cases.

So I decided to transfer from the Zune crowd to the iPod crowd. Problem is, I need a case to protect this sexy piece of technology. Does anyone have any good recommendations for cases that don't cover the click wheel and the screen? I'd prefer a rubberized case. Thanks!

Edit: Whoops! It's a 120gig Classic.

    Here is my experience: Before I switched to the new Touch I had the newest classic every year and I always used a rubber case that fit snuggly on my iPod. It worked like a charm especially when I worked out. Now to contradict this statement when I went to go buy another rubber case for my new iTouch the guy at Best Buy said that rubber wasn't good at all because it wouldn't let the device "breathe"? So I said whatever and when with a snap-on plastic hard case and honestly it's way more of a hassle then the rubber case.

    What the hell kind of crazy advice is that? Was he upselling you? We'd know if rubber cases broke ipods by "suffocating them", because hundreds of thousands of people would be flipping out on the internet. I do recommend a hard plastic case with rubber edges, though, because I drop mine every so often while exercising, or want to chuck it in a bag, and with a hard plastic case i don't have to worry about damaging it. I particularly like these Contour cases:

    Ya know I knew I never should've trusted advice from a salesman that also suggested a case I bought that only fits the older iTouch >_> I wasted $30 in gas just to go exchange the damn thing. My first thought was "....iPods....breathe?"

    It's so hard in the store, sometimes, to stand up to the salesperson even if they're spouting nonsense. I think we've all fallen for it at some time or another.

    Googling reveals: http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipods.html.
    Charging your iPod, iPod nano or iPod shuffle while in certain carrying cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity. If you notice your iPod gets hot when you charge it, take it out of its case first.

    That doesn't say "don't use the carrying case", though it says don't charge it. Most cases seem to be properly ventilated. Maybe it's a reason to not buy a case that's completely new to the market?
