Sometime ago I sadly wrote about my new iPad and its unfortunate fall (literally) from grace. Of course when I replaced it I did so with an indestructible case of all cases from Otterbox. When I decided to purchase an iPod touch from my less than graceful son I knew I needed the same protection. With my positive experience with my Otterbox for my iPad I knew I wanted an iPod Touch case from Otterbox.
When it came to choosing a case there was no question I knew I wanted the Defender from Otterbox . The same type of case I have for my iPad. When it came to choosing a color I had to put on my motherly detective cap and do a little sneaky snooping. If it was me I would have chosen the all black iPod Touch case. However this was for my son who is anything but plain Jane. He loves things bright, colorful and loud, so I knew he would want a colorful Otterbox. I called him up one afternoon and told him I was taking a survey about iPhones and they wanted children’s opinions on what colors they preferred. I went through the list of iPod Touch case colors and was not at all surprised when he chose this Cookie Monster color like case.
When Nick opened his birthday present I can’t tell you the excitement on his face over receiving of all things and iPod Touch. He really thought it was too much for a birthday present. With his iPod Touch of course we gave him the iPod Touch case. After everything was open I went about putting the case together. If you are not familiar with Otterbox, you should know they include both a hard case and silicone case for extra protection.
My One Tip: Make sure both your iPod screen and iPod Touch case screen are clean, clean, clean before you snap the two hard cases together. When I say they are indestructible (my own words) I mean they are almost impossible to take a part. Any time I try to take apart a hard case on a defender case I break many nails. However it is worth the protection of my device.
After the hard case is all snapped together you are ready for the silicone portion. Note that sometimes you just have to continue to rotate the iPod and work on each snap and sometimes come back. It took me a little bit of time to make sure everything was snapped down, but I wanted to be very careful not to break anything. Then you slip on the silicone case for added protection and it makes it easier to grip.
Then just push in all the little silicone plugins to protect the slots on your phone. Once the cover is all in place your iPod is fully protected. In addition to the silicone and polycarbonate shell the front shell has a protective screen attached.
- Three layers of protection
- Complete interaction of the device’s functions
- Built-in screen protector
- Clear protective membrane on touch screen
- High-quality polycarbonate shell
- Durable silicone skin
My son loves the color of his iPod Touch case, it has his name written all over it (in color only). With the Otterbox I feel confident that the only harm that may come to this is a tumble in the wash or a treasure hunted needed to locate it. I am a huge fan of Otterbox and now not just the iPad cases but their iPod Touch as well. In fact I’m starting to think about changing out the one for my iPhone to an Otterbox as well
