Well worth the small cost!,
This review is from: DLO HipCase Leather Folio Case for iPod touch 1G, 2G, 3G (Black) (Electronics)
I must say, I hate most of the hard plastic or soft gel cases they have out there for all the iPod models. For my iPod touch, in particular, the only cases out there were also open to the elements, which meant that my iPod screen would either be in danger of being scratched or damaged, or I would have to put a plastic protector over the screen, which would reduce the touch sensitivity (not to mention all the damn bubbles that get caught under those things).
Since the iPod touch came out, I've just been using the slipcase from my previous iPod, and have been looking for a case that both completely covered the iPod, but flipped open to allow the screen to be accessed without hindrance. This case does both, and you could not ask for a better product.
The case is soft leather, which looks and feels very nice and allows the flap to be bent behind the iPod without problems, and the flap is conveniently held in place while closed with magnets. There's easy access to all ports, and even a small hole near the top of the iPod for the light sensor, which shows good thinking on the manufacturer's part. There is also a belt clip on the back, which is handy if I ever need to use it. The Touch fits very snugly inside, but is still easily removable (unlike some other cases, which nearly require a crowbar to insert and remove).
My only gripe (and it's a small one), is that when in the case, the leather around the screen makes access to the borders a little harder, especially with web browsing (although it may just be my big fingers). Either way, it stopped being a problem after I was used to it.
This is hands down the best case I've had for any mobile device. It's obvious the manufacturer put a lot of thought into what iPod Touch owners really wanted. If you have an iPod touch, and you want good protection with ease of use, you want this product! Well worth the small cost!
