I have an Iskin Evo3 for my 5th gen. I really love it because i feel it's safe if i would happen to drop it. I'd get the new iskin, but it has had some bad reviews and I also don't think i would get it in time for Christmas(is the shipping still being delayed). Ive been looking into hard ones. How do these things hold up on drops? I would think they wouldn't be near as safe, they look like they would crack easily, or not absorb the shock as well. I wish contour would release the showcase. I had one for my 3rd gen, and all though it's thick, i got the best of both worlds with plastic and rubber.
