This case looks good however.....
on 20 March 2013
I was looking for a smart and stylish case for my newly acquired Ipod that looked different to the usual ones on offer.Now firstly I felt the dispatch could have been slightly quicker as it took 5 days to arrive.On opening the package I noticed that the case came in two parts,there is the outer 'hard shell'(I will move on to that later) and and inner neoprene skin which sits inside the outer shell.Now here I encountered the first issue.It appears someone has tried to be a bit too clever with the design of the bottom end of the case,it has two flaps,one that supposedly slips into the space on your Ipod where you attach a charger or docking station.Unfortunately it's pretty much useless and not fit for purpose as the fit is so tight you need to completely remove the ipod from the case.There is a second flap next to it that slots into the earphone socket which is very flimsy and is something I would not like to snag as I feel it will simply tear off.Both these pretty much useless flaps serve only to distort the bottom edge of the neoprene inner case,so much so that it does not fit the hard outer shell correctly.Now onto the hard outer shell,again all the issues surround the over complicated design of the bottom edge of the case.Such is the poor design that you are basically left with a pin thin piece of plastic that runs along the bottom edge of the case due to the outer hard shell having to leave room for the various flaps of the neoprene inner sleeve.This pin thin piece of plastic is nowhere near substantial enough for the rigueurs of normal day to day use,please remember that due to the poor overall design you have to take your ipod out of the case for such as simple a task as recharging your device.The pin thin piece of plastic broke (as on other customers who have reviewed this very product)after around 16 days.
I have had the case now for around 6 weeks and it is pretty much useless as the soft inner sleeve is now saggy and baggy,it does not sit correctly in the hard outer shell and does not hold the ipod that it supposed to be protecting securely in place.At £10 it is way way overpriced and my advice would be to avoid this product at all costs
