Griffin - Black Survivor Skin Protective Case for iPod touch (5th/6th gen.) - black

No case can protect your iPod if you can't carry it with you. That's why Griffin made Survivor Skin..

Survivor Skin is extra-thick silicone cladding that wraps protectively around your iPod, yet is slim enough in profile to fit easily in and out of your pocket. Survivor Skin's durable silicone protects the back, sides and edges of your iPod from impacts and vibration. The smooth, matte textured exterior is easy to grip, and custom molded for a precise fit. A molded interior provides extra shock absorption. Edge cutouts provide access to controls, headphone jack and dock connector, and raised button covers keep grit and moisture away from buttons and controls. Front and back camera ports keep your iPod ready for action.

How protective is Survivor Skin? An independent testing agency applied standards for impact resistance due to drops set by the U.S. Department of Defense (MIL-STD-810G) and tested Survivor Skin for Shock/Drop and Vibration. They gave its silicone and savvy engineering tougher tests than you will ever subject it to. It performed. Spectacularly.

The Tests:

Shock/Drop: An independent testing agency repeatedly dropped a Survivor Skin-clad iPod onto a concrete floor from a height of 6 ft. (That's higher than you will ever drop it from while standing.)

Vibration: The test subjected Survivor Skin and iPod to 18 hrs of bone-shaking vibration, from 20 to 2000 cycles per second. (Imagine leaving your iPod on the floor of your car all day while you negotiate under-construction roads at top speed.)

      Great cover

      Just bought this case today and it feels great. One of the reasons I chose this case was because its rubberized which will absorb shock from falls better. I like how it fits nice and tight around my iPod. Wishes it came in more colors but it goes cool with my black iPod and white earphones. I will agree with one of the other reviews about the strap not fitting well in the back but honestly I wonder how many people will use that strap. I doubt I'll see anyone with that thing hanging in there while riding in the train or bus or carrying it around to take it out when taking a pic. It's a cool feature but as for me I won't be using it so it won't bother me with this case. To the other person complaining about not being able to touch the outer edges of the screen..... If you are going to cover your device with a case it has to hug around the outer edges of your device, and as am writing this review I will state that the case does not interfere with the page as I can still see a black section of the iPod screen in between the web page and the griffin case so I don't understand his complaint. Also, I don't know any cases out there for any iPod generation that covers the audio jack, speaker??? Really? And the data connector. Maybe the ones on eBay. It will be cool but not necessary for speaker or audio jack. Overall am very happy with my purchase but would have liked to have more color options. The weight that the case adds to this very light iPod is just perfect. Even with it on its still lighter than the the 4th gen iPod touch. Oh, the price is kinda high too but hey, it just came out so I don't expect them to be lowered unless you get yours through another online store.

      Bought my 5th generation touch shortly after launch. Asked associate if any cases came out yet. He brought me two. Said the other cases were for kids. All he showed me was the blue and black version of this case. Always like to keep my investment protected. Bought this case a few days later. Case fits Ipod touch fine for the most part. Main complaint I have is the cut out for the wrist strap, They put one there, but case is too thick. Can't attach it. Would give a higher rating if it wasn't for that. Hoping that in the future there will be a large selection of cases like the 4th generation. Hopefully an Otterbox will come out for it soon.

      Very good product

      This is an excellent case for what its advertised for. It's easy to slip on after the first try, it doesn't cost $40, and it provides good grip. One thing I noticed was that it does not retain heat at all, so if you thought the rubber would keep your hands a bit warmer, you may be a little disappointed. I also, on 2-3 occasions, thought it may have had a break between the headphone jack/other areas. However after slipping the case on/off a lot during the space of at least a month, I've found that it is very durable, and the elasticity allows it to fit snug on my iPod even after I've stretched it off.

      Protects well but covers area you need to use.

      This cover fit well and allowed use of all ports and buttons, but it covered the area above the HOME button, up to the edge of the screen. You must be able to touch this area for quick access to the Control Center. After reading about this problem on the web, I used an Xacto knife to cut out a small area from the rubber where the bottom of the screen would be, in an arc to reveal about half of the HOME button: now it works fine. I would not suggest that anyone try this - I like to tinker with things and so I took a chance. Also the rubber makes it difficult to quickly slide the IPod into your pocket, but probably also makes it difficult to fall out of your pocket too - so I put up with the extra fuss.

      Solid Case for New iPod

      I bought this case for my son's new iPod and it has passed the test of a 12 year old boy. He uses the iPod for music, YouTube and some games. It gets a lot of use. He has dropped it getting out of the car and off of the couch. He has lost it, found it, dropped it again...and again. The case has offered solid protection against the drops and the bright blue color makes it easier to find. We added a good screen protector and the combination has been excellent, so far. This case offers great protection for the price. I would have given it a 5, if it had come with a tempered glass or Gorilla Glass screen protector.

      Excellent Case Will Fit 5th and 6th Gen iPod Touch

      This is a great case for anyone looking for protection and comfort as key purchase points. The rubbery silicone makes it easier to grip when held, and the bounciness of it should provide adequate protection for small falls. The only downside is NO front screen protector is included (i.e. screen protecting film). The raised edge of the case along the side of the screen will prevent it from lying flat on the screen when placed on surfaces screen side down. This may be sufficient for some people. At time of purchase, this was $19.99, and at that price point I do not see the need to remove a star for lack of a screen protector.

      Nice for basic protection

      I have dropped my iPhone 6 plus from roughly 3.5 feet onto asphalt, concrete, and tile without damage. I don't use a screen protector but it is probably not a bad idea considering this case only offers a bumper for the screen and camera. The material is nice and does not slide very easily (even out of your pocket). Great for the price with only two downfalls that I noticed. Like I mentioned before, it does not slide out of the pocket very easily and the bumper makes it difficult to touch the edge of the screen. I originally purchased this case as a temporary until I ordered something "better" online but ended up keeping this one.

      I got a new iPod for this past Christmas (Yes they still make those). I really wanted a case to protect my new pride and joy that I without a doubt hold higher than my own children. Granted I don't have any children but my point still stands! I wanted a case that could sustain a fall from my beautiful gut which is about 4 feet. I can proudly say that I dropped my pod with the case on over the sidewalk in downtown and not a single bit of damage was done! Considering how little this case costs compared to the price of fixing a cracked screen I already got my money worth out of the case.
