Yet another solid offering from Incipio. It fits perfectly and doesn't impede button function. The design is also pleasing to look at, and allow some of the iPod's colour to shine through in the mercury grey version. It certainly feels very high quality and I do trust it to protect my iPod off my first floor balcony! The material feels much stiffer than silicone - stiffness is halfway between TPU and a completely solid shell. However I feel that the case is excessively thick on the back adding unnecessary weight and thickness and the lip on the screen could be just a tiny bit thicker. And the case smells horrible like burning plastics when new.
