Dropped my phone coming off the plane...
I have never in my life written an online review, but I felt compelled to after this experience. Yesterday I dropped my phone walk I have never in my life written an online review, but I felt compelled to after this experience. Yesterday I dropped my phone walking out of a commercial airplane and it fell down the crack between the plane and the jet bridge, sending it plunging down to the runway below (not sure how far that is in feet but you get the idea).

Overall a good investment....
For those looking for a good case to protect their investment in their new IPod touch, this is a nice one. The case is as describ For those looking for a good case to protect their investment in their new IPod touch, this is a nice one. The case is as described, coming with an inner soft slip on case to cover sides and back while the outer hard case is added protection. About the only thing it doesn't do is protect the front glass.
One minor issue, if you have the Belkin cradle for the Touch, the case will not allow you to mount the device to the cradle to sync/charge, even with the bottom flap opened. It also will not allow any standard 3rd party auxiliary 3mm plug to be inserted into the IPod, or at least to let it fit well as some trimming will be required depending on how they were molded during manufacturing. But the ear plugs will fit without issue. The wrist strap also will not be usable.
The case is a very snug fit, everything on the inner case lines up and sits over the buttons in such a way you may not hear the 'click' of the buttons being pushed. But the openings for the camera and light are where they're supposed to be without any overlap. The outer shell contains the inner so that there is no play whatsoever; how this will translate to adding a touchscreen protector is yet to be determined. …
