Default Clip Zip Accesories suggestions

Have just recieved my new 8GB black Clip Zip. What can I say that hasn't been said yet, I love this little player. I bought it for Gym use mainly, however, I'm now a little paranoid about it getting damaged when slung into my bag. Anybody have any bright suggestions as to how to keep it protected? I have considered picking up some MEElectronics CC51 to get the case them come with to keep it in as Agent Milo did with his Clip+ in his review of the phones. Let me know what you use!

Cheers

Simon

Similar cases (without earphones) available from eBay and probably the oriental vendors like dealextreme.

I've got my Clip+ and earphones in a metal candy tin (Altoids Sours, but haven't seen them in the stores lately).

If you go the Altoids tin route don’t forget to line the interior with some foam or cloth. I lined mine with foamies, which is the foam you fined surrounding some software CD’s, you can buy sheets of this foam cheap at art supply stores.

Meritline.com has a similar case (which sometimes can be found on a special sale price), and is a good, trustworthy source oftentimes with great prices.

^ I got that case a while a go when Sandisk had a special offer of Clip Zip + Case for 50$.

It's pretty damn great but no way a small case is worth 15$, go look on eBay

Thans for the replies! I saw the case on the Sansa US site, it didn't appear on the UK. I may spring for the MEElectronic CC51's to get that case. You can however buy the MEElectronics case alone or others from Amazon. But I see this as an excuse to upgrade my phones.

The best accessory you can buy is to upgrade your IEMs, so you should be happier ...
