I read the reviews for this case and since most were generally favourable I went for it. As it turns out, this was not a good decision. Not that the leather part of this case is bad, that I can give my wholehearted support to, it's the crappy plastic Ipod holder that is so useless. For a start it's not like the one they use in their photograph of the product, it's a puny plastic holder the shape of an ipod that it sorta clips into. But it's so bloody fragile that it started cracking with barely any use and then chunks of it just brake away so you have no edge to keep your Ipod in place anymore. I wrote to them to ask if they'd send a replacement but two weeks later haven't heard anything at all, but at least I can warn others NOT to get ripped off with this totally shoddy product. Buy it at your peril.
