I will update this review over the next few months because I always seem to leave good reviews and then they break or rip.
I decided to spend a little bit more money (I usually spend like a £1) to get a better case. And yes it is one of the best I have brought so far. It's better than my big chunky griffin case. My iPod is almost a year old and it is spic and span so I am starting to slack a little and don't care if it gets a scratch or chip.
On first impressions it is great, small and has a lovely green color. But what I noticed is the next day is where the leather is stuck onto the plastic it seems to peeling off, especially the little latch. I can't see that being on it for long. After a week the edges have started to get a little frayed but that's what I expected.
I would recommend this case to anyone with an iPod Touch what they don't want to break. Because I think the case has what it takes to protect the iPod if you ever drop it.
For some reason, cases for the iPod Touch 5 are thin on the ground even a year after its introduction! Consequently, I was delighted to see this on Amazon, it's thin, lightweight, and most important Green! Very well made and adds only minimal bulk.
The case is very good and does it's job however as I've been the owner of 3 of thease cases in various colours, the material on the green feels and looks considerably cheaper than the white or black. Clearly from the price they are not built to last but after about 5 months the plastic cracks on the case and the material comes away from the plastic on the spine of the case.
