    Great cover

    Posted

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I bought this case for my iPod touch 6. It fits perfectly, and, although it is bulkier than some, I can see that it will provide excellent protection for my iPod. The entire back of the iPod is covered and there is a slight ridge around the front to keep the glass from touching if it is placed down on its face. The corners are reinforced for added protection. It has a kind of gritty feel, but I like that it will not easily slip out of my hand. It is a very light, yet substantial case.

    I am really satisfied about this purchase. I was originally going to purchase the Otterbox Defender for my iPod, which was $40, but I stumbled upon this one and just got this one. Turns out, I was really impressed becuase of its great protection, good grip and you'll feel reassured about your iPod in this case. The corners have more silicone and absorbs shock when you drop it by accident. Also has a great blue color.

    My son engulfed his iPod in his new case. He carries a Nike duffel bag to school & plays basketball, so he stuffs the ipod in the bag and after practice he changed out his clothes and grabbed his iPod only to see the screen shattered. Never happened with any other cover he had on it, just this one. We don't know what happened or how. He didnt keep the receipt. It didn't even last one day at school in his duffel bag. Bought it one night and the next day there was a broken iPod screen.

    Poor Quality

    John1S

    Do not waste your time and money buying this Griffin Ipod Touch 5 case. The hole for my front facing camera is way off. The volume and power button markers are hard to find. Cannot touch the outer edge of the screen without touching the case. Case fits extremely loose. No protection for ear plug, charger, or speaker. Totally nonfunctional. Best Buy should not sell a product with no quality or value.

    A nice reasonably priced protector

    This protector is easy to put on the iPod Touch. It does protect the device (except for the touch surface). It offers protection if the device is dropped. It also has a nice feel when holding the device in one hand. It also has a fairly nice appearance when covering the iPod Touch. Additional protection is required if rain or liquids make contact with the device. The front side of the device can be scratched unless additional protection is purchased.

    Just picked this up for my new iPod Touch 5 and after shopping the web for cases and comparing to a recent "switcheasy" case I had ordered earlier I'm very happy with the Griffin. It's not a designer design and the attention given to the buttons is not sexy but very useable. I have no issues with camera or other ports lining up and have to say this is a great case for the money.

    Excellent Basic Protective Case for iPod Touch

    This case is durable, easy to use, and fits appropriately on the iPod Touch 5th Gen. It works best when you get a screen protector as well for all over protection from scratches and cracks. The main drawback I found is that the case is slightly too thick to allow my iPod to charge on my docking station. But the case is easy to take off and put back on, so it's only a minor inconvenience. Overall, the case works well and does as advertised.

    Bulky, but great protection

    This appears to afford excellent protection, although I have never dropped the phone, nor dunked it into a tub of water. With the protection comes bulk, especial when housing a 6S Plus, but it will fit easily into cargo pants, and front and back jeans pockets. It is not particularly easy to insert and remove the phone, again because of the protection it provides, but it should not be necessary to do that very often.

    This case has a real nice feel and seems to protect my new iPod Touch very well. I haven't drop-tested it yet and don't intend to! However, it feels quality and I think it will perform well for my needs. I intend to use it in my vehicle for a dedicated music library storage media. The price was reasonable as well!

    This case was attractive from the display in the store. It had a rugged look and good recommendations on the packaging. When i opened it at home i found that while the edges of the touch were protected from short distance falls, THE SCREEN WAS EXPOSED. There was no protection over the screen nor was there protection on the bottom of the Ipod where the headphone jack and lightning cable jack are located.

    Bought an iPod touch and knew I needed a protector case but held off until I saw this one in the store. Wasn't completely sold on even after I bought it but it has been a great protection since I can be clumsy and I've dropped it on the floor at my house, on the ground at work and on pavement while getting out of my car. I highly recommend this case.

    I purchased this for my 5th generation ipod touch. It fits perfectly and has a nice "gripping touch" to it. I'm giving it 4 stars not five because the plug in access for the sound jack and the charging jack have a bit more exact line up for connection spacing issues. But it still works fine and it's not a deal breaker for me. I just have to take an extra 3 seconds to line the plugs properly.
