needed something baglike to hold my new ipod mini as i never wear belts and often have no pockets. this was just something really basic to fill in till my swanky leather one arrived. it’s surprisingly practical - i particularly love the way the headphones thread through the straps, saving having all those wires flapping about.
the back flap can be used to store the headphones and strap wrapped around it, works fine but looks dreadful
i can still skip tracks and pause through the fabric, but can’t change the volume (even with sound check i get the odd nasty surprise) or rate tracks, but it’s great for when i just want to shuffle n go. i’d say i’ve used it about equal with the swanky £25 leather one. all free - leftover yarn and buttons from my jumper hoard.
