This case is really good. It doesn't scratch ur iPod like a hard case but isn't as flimsy as a silicone. Its the perfect middle point. The only cutouts are for the camera and the 30 pin port and headphone jack on bottom(fits very nicely and doesn't cover anything) and has over button things for the power and volume buttons which i love because sand cant get in their and scratch ur ipod. The edges are a little flimsy but they are solid and protect the screen well from damage due to small falls. It looks cool and im getting lots of compliments and gasps of aw when i tell them it was 2 bucks. The only bad thing is the pattern is on the inside and leaves a mark on ur ipod which fortunately is easily washed of.
