I purchased this case after having 'issues' with my OtterBox Defender Case. In my opinion, the OtterBox Commuter Case is better than the Defender case for the following reasons:

1. The Defender case is a very protective case. However, it is very bulky. The Commuter is very smooth and sleek. The buttons on the case are very responsive, and the outer plastic cover looks awesome.

2. The built-in screen protector on the Defender case reduces the clarity of the iPod Touch screen. The screen protector that comes with the Commuter maintains the great resolution of the iPod Touch.

3. The flaps on the bottom of the Defender case are very unattractive and made my iPod look sloppy whenever the USB charging cord or headphones were connected. The flaps on the bottom of the Commuter case are sturdier, and actually stay in place most of the time.

4. The large size of the Defender case causes it not to fit in my external speaker system. However, the Commuter case is smaller and thinner, and can be docked in my speaker system.

5. Last but not least, the two color design of the Commuter case makes it more attractive than the Defender.

Overall, if you are willing to accept slightly less protection, the Otterbox Commuter case is a better case than the Defender.

This is the most amazing iPod case in the world. I swear by it, and I'm about to order a second one.

I flipped my SUV in a violent wreck two days ago. It stopped completely upside-down. Luckily no one was seriously injured, although my vehicle is now totaled.

Long story short, this case was on my iPod touch when it was thrown from my vehicle during the crash. It landed about 20 feet away from my SUV, on the pavement.

My iPod survived! There is a small crack in the plastic corner of the case itself, but otherwise, everything's good! my iPod works perfectly, just as it did before the crash.

If that's not enough of a testimony for ya, I don't know what is. I love this case.

I will put up pics of the minimal damage.

The Commuter Series OtterBox for the iPod touch 4th Generation is an AMAZING case!! I love it!! I did not realize that the silicon and polycarbonate shell separate. I thought that is nice and it makes it easy to clean the little dust that is attracted to it. I will say that without the iPod in the case it seems a little flimsy, but with the iPod inside of it is quite nice. I have found that it is a very protective case since the few times I have dropped it and I am sure that there is still many more to come. ;-) It is not meant to be as big and bulky as say the Defender series which will offer more protection for the iPod. This as one can tell by the name is meant for easy transport and the sleekness of it. It easily slips into a pocket and takes up very little space. Next, I must say that I didn't know really what to think of the silicon plugs at first , I knew that they said it helped to keep the dust out of the access ports and therefor helped protect the ports from build up. But know that I have them on the actual iPod I think it is very nice feature. Now, I like that OtterBox has kept a hole in the back so you can see the apple. Some people think that this is bad because it is not protected. I on the other hand think that it is nice to still be able to see the apple and I don't think it really wrecks the apple and surrounding area. The silicon is nice and flexible. Usually with silicon overtime it will separate from the device. But with the polycarbonate shell over it seems to hold its place and not stretch as it normally would. OtterBox has also used another pro of silicon and textured it. It is textured on the sides where you would grip it in a hand. On the left and right of the polycarbonate shell on the back. This makes it not slip as easily.Read more ›

I really like the color. I'm not 100% thrilled with the thickness of the case, although it is much better than no case alone. My only complaint is that on one side of the case pulls/pushes against the clear screen cover causing it to poke up. It's only a minor inconvenience, and I may solve it by just taking the clear screen protector off. I would recommend this case to others. Both camera lenses are clear and unencumbered/or covered.

It's an Otterbox, so the bar is set pretty high. I have them for my phones, so I'm familiar with their product and the price. It's higher than most other cases, but the protection level is way better. It really is better and you get what you pay for. Son is planning to get the new iPhone next week and I will get an otterbox case for him as well. It protects my investment. I also am glad they are finally coming out with colored cases. Style and protection, can't beat that.

This is my 2nd Otterbox case, the first being one for my cell phone (this is for my iPod Touch), and it is by far the best case I've ever purchased. It holds the unit securely and comfortably, and keeps it well protected from scatches, dings, dents or worse. I bought the Red/Black color combo, and my only complaint would be that I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED a more burgandy and black, then red, to make it more masculine. The colors shown online ARE a good representation of the actual color, so it's my issue, not Otterbox. I really like the case for my HTC EVO even better, but both are great!!
