    OK guys im posting the first review ever (well i haven't seen any others on the web) about the iFrogz iTreadz case. Here are some things you might want to know

    It took about 12 days to ship here (1 day after the estimated arrival date)
    It costs about 20$ (buy it from iFrogz or from Amazon)
    It is a silicon case
    Since it is silicon/hard rubber it SHOULD (99.9% chance) that it is compatible with InvisibleShield. I will get one soon and keep you updated
    It doesn't attract to much lint, but can be a pain in the A$$ if you wear jeans (i dont

    Ok on with the review

    So basically it came in a really thin packaging, and i didn't even notice it until the last minute. This is the package it came in.

    When i first took it out the case looked well OK like just a case

    Then i slide it on my ipod. Its harder to put it on then a normal silicon case, but it holds really well. This is partially because its made out of more rubber then silicon, so its hard while still shock absorbant.

    The back of it is a beautiful tire track design, just like on the website!

    Its has access to all ports and functions, while covering everything else.

    So Here are my general thoughts

    Looks 9/10 It looks very stylish, and beautiful (especially for people who like black)

    Feel 9.2/10 It feels very good, with patented grip on the sides! also unlike other silicon cases, around the sides of the screen, it kind of comes off a bit if u just put your finger on it, but with this it stays on firmly!

    Protection 8.5/10 The case protects pretty well. It does though add some bulk to the ipod, but not the flabby, hated bulk but the type that just makes you want to hold it and grasp it in your hand all day. I did a couple of drops tests and it protects very well because of its thick, rubber, shock absorbent walls!!

    Here it is compared to the naked ipod

    - Hard to get iPod out of/put iPod back into case (could be a pain for some People)

    Attractive? Are you kidding? I love the whole "great grip" thing, but come on, that totally ruins the look of the phone! It makes it look like an ugly Treo.
