You submitted two samples of cases that are designed to provide storage, protection, portability, and organization to an iPod or MP3 player type of device. They are constructed with an outer surface of plastic sheeting material. They are clamshell in design with interiors that are specially fitted and designed to hold the player.

Each is secured by means of a zippered closure.
