This is the third Incipio soft silicon grip type ipod case that I have purchased. The others have held up very well with no tearing or sagging with extended us, so I'm expecting the same from this one. They have definitely saved some Ipods from being broken around my family! Highly recommended...._x000D_
After looking at many cases, chose this one for the following reasons: 1. I wanted a case that didn't make my Ipod any larger than neccessary to protect it, 2. Wanted easy access to entire screen (some of the covers I tried made it hard to touch the screen buttons close to the edge), 3. Wanted a screen protector included, 4. Wanted a cover that would cushion the Ipod if it got dropped, 5. Wanted to feel good about putting my Ipod in my pocket without it getting scratched. This cover was just what I was looking for.
