Default Clip Zip case that covers microSD card slot?

I'm looking for any case for the Clip Zip that will cover the microSD slot. I am concerned about getting sweat in it as I use it while running and I sweat like a drunk pig in a sauna on Venus. The only ones I have been able to find have a cut-away where the slot is and that won't really help much.
Apologies if this is already a thread but I can't find anything after searching (though admittedly I didn't devote a lot of time to the search). Any help would be appreciated.

I can't offer much advice but just a thought/possibly: one of the silicone cases, with a piece of tape of some type on the inside, to cover the slot in the silicone?

if you sweat that much, I suggest that you put the player in a small, thin plastic bag, and use a small rubber band to seal the bag around where the earphone cord emerges from the bag. If the bag is relatively thin and very flexible, it should be easy to control the player while it is sealed in the bag. of course this won't work so well if you plan to clip the player to yourself. Instead you could put it in a pocket.

I usually carry a small ziploc bag with me, and it it starts raining, I put my Clip player inside the bag in my shirt pocket seal the bag around where the earphone cord exits, and continue to listen to music. If the rain gets extremely heavy though, I stop listening, and put the earphones together with the player in the bag in my pocket, and seal the bag. Since the Clip players have no moving parts, there is no need to ventilate the player while it is playing. It should probably be open to the air while charging though, as it does get warm then.

Since I rarely change the card in my player, I have a small piece of tape over the card in the player. Some have reported dropping their Clip player, and the card coming out of the player then, and getting lost. I hope for future players that Sandisk puts a small door over the card slot, as Olympus does with their recorders that have a card slot.

Hopefully, there is that future. And a quality future Clip.

Those are good suggestions. Thanks. I did find an old silicone case from the original Clip which didn't have a card slot, so the case is continuous there. I trimmed the screen to accommodate the Clip Zip's larger screen. It doesn't look the best, but it seems to do a decent job keeping sweat out.
I really wish I could find a rubber/silicone case that didn't have cutaways for the volume buttons and micro USB port too, but I know those don't exist.
I'll keep pondering on it...perhaps I'll come up with a solution that works for me.

Here is the Israel-made silicone case I use:

No cutaways for the volume buttons and micro USB port.

The photos show cutaways for the volume buttons, USB port, and the card slot. Are these photos not accurate?

Sir,

On my clear white case, purchased 3 years ago from ebay, there are holes for the usb plug (slightly oversize), earphone (circular), screen, and the entry at the back. No holes for the volume buttons or card slot. Photos showing further holes, seem not the same as at the top of the page.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Silico...item339659d829 seems more like mine.

Thank you for the info. I will look around for more like that. It looks like exactly what I need.

Dumb question:

Since you have Clip Zip - can you Clip it somewhere dry ???

Hello Rachel. Are you happy with your Cowon player? Would you buy another Cowon player? If not, then which players would you consider buying? I have a bunch of Sandisk players that are Rockboxed, and a Sandisk Clip Sport. i want something new though.
The Cowon M2 and Sony A15 intrigue me, however imo they are a bit expensive. The Fiio X1 looks interesting, except that battery life is much too short.

Not a dumb question. I prefer holding it so I can adjust volume, skip songs, etc.
