    Today i will be reviewing SwitchEasy's Skeleton RebelTouch, Design, Protection, Price etc.

    Technical Specifications:
    UltraFrame™ hard protection system
    Unique mix material Ultra Hybrid design
    Revolutionary special material ADSP to protect the delicate finishing or your iPod Touch 2G
    Complete protection for your iPod Touch 2G

    Note: Will not protect from any type of water damage.
    This case comes in Red & Black, White & Black, Light Bluish/Teal, Pinkish/Red, Clear, Black

    Copied from: http://www.switcheasy.com/products/RebelTouch/RebelTouch.php#

    Design:
    This case has a very nice and smooth looking finish and is split into 2 parts, A black plastic-like silicone with cuts into it, and a white skeleton that snaps into the cuts on the black plastic like silicone. The white skeleton is smooth and doesn't scratch too much. It comes from the back and snaps onto the front. It has a white on black finish and isn't straining on the eyes. On the back these is a SwitchEasy emblem on the black pushing out, (Doesn't feel like it does) and it's in the middle. The Volume rockers have a cut out in the silicone and the same with the sleep/power switch. The volume and usb cuts are perfectly alined. The case comes with a dock protector (black) and you put it into your dock connector to keep dust from getting in, and it matches well. The case is meant for protecting the back of your ipod/ and doesn't cover anything in the front. The bottom is kind of saggy too.
    Overall Design: 9.7/10

    Protection:
    This case has pretty good protection but not as good as my previously reviewed case (the otterbox defender) it has shock jolt protection so if it's dropped from a short distance it won't be damaged. Although if you drop it on the front, the first time it will be ok, but the next few times you might get some cracks/scratches since the front isn't fully protected. The case does come with 2 (anti-static) screen protectors [but from what i hear they aren't too good] The power, and volume rockers are protected pretty good, but access to the sleep/power button is hard at times. Also, the case is included with a dock protector, it is made but some type of siliconey/plastic material and keeps dust away from it.
    Overall Protection: 8.3/10

    Price:
    The price of the case is $24.99
    The price of shipping is $3.00
    Shipping is USPS Express shipping.

    Case is shipped from somewhere in California i believe.

    Accessories:
    The case comes with:

    -One Microfiber Wipe
    -One Universal Dock Adapter
    -One Squeegee for your Screen Guard application
    -One Video Dock Stand
    -One Power Jack Connector Protector
    -One 3.5mm HeadPhone Adapter

    Overall:
    Overall, this is a well put together case. It is more for design but has some protection. It doesn't attract too much lint and it stays clean. The white doesn't shows scratches as much as the black.

    Overall Rating: 9/10

    good review. I love my case and I was wicked happy to discover that they offer the hard plastic in multiple colors to mix and match. I'm ordering the red and black one today. The thing I like most about it is it protects the iPod and it looks great and doesn't add a lot of bulk to the iPod.
