Exactly what I wanted (got there at last!),
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 4G Touch Luxury Black Genuine Leather Case Cover & Screen Protector for New Apple iPod Touch 4th Generation - 8GB 32GB 64GB (Electronics)I previously had a 'leather' case for my 4th generation iPod Touch, however, it was of a different design to this one, whereby the Touch was held in place by a plastic inner case. Once in place, the product looked great and the black plastic holder was barely visible. The problem was the quality of the plastic that held the Touch. It was a hard, brittle material and the first one cracked within a couple of weeks (replaced by the seller concerned) and its replacement lasted just a few months before disintegrating.
When I travel, I always take my Touch so wanted a case that would offer a level of protection as well as something that looked good. Having lost faith in anything with a plastic inner, I decided to look for a 'one piece' case with gutters at the base and sides that would hold the Touch in place without the need for any other securing mechanism.
The case was received within two days of ordering and was perfectly well packaged.
The first thing that struck me when I opened this case was the smell. This is real leather and no mistake. I slipped my Touch into it and knew right away that I'd made the right decision. The iPod was held firmly and securely and all the holes were in the right places meaning that I can insert my headphones, use the camera or charge the Touch without removing the case. The 'flip' cover, which is also lightly padded for extra protection, fastens by means of a hidden magnet and closes with a satisfying 'snap'. The loop on the back that means the Touch can be attached to a belt, also functions as a stand for the iPod (both vertically or horizontally), meaning no more propping the Touch up against cups or bunches of keys when watching a film on a flight or a long train journey.
Sure, there are cheaper cases available, but I've always believed you get what you pay for and this looks and feels like a quality product. My previous case was sold as a leather item, but the quality of the leather simply did not compare to this. In short, this is exactly the sort of case I was looking for - it just took me a while to find it. Now we're going to be best friends. Highly recommended.
