I'm sure all you newbie shuffle owners have witnessed how impossible it is to find accessories. The Apple stores in my area don't have a clue when they will be receiving the arm band or the sport case. I think the only thing they have in stock is the docking station.

Are these accessories available yet? If so, how do you like the arm band?

I just received the silicone skins for my shuffle. I HIGHLY recommend them. They fit very snug, and the potential of any scratches is significantly reduced. It's also very easy to manipulate the little slider on the back. The silicone is thinner, so you can still use your finger to adjust the slider.
