    - Nice Design
    - Decent cut outs
    - Small Lay on the table Design
    - No Branding
    Cons:

    Pros:
    - Slim
    - See the iPod's Back
    - Stylish
    - Good drop protection & scratch Protection
    - Perfect Camera/speaker/dock/Headphone Cut outs
    - Lay on the Table design
    - Hybrid Case
    - Comes with a Micro Stand

    Cons:
    - Back Scratches, not as back as the Gear4 Thin Ice
    - Doesn't cover the bottom
    - Expensive
    - Hard to press Volume Buttons

    Conclusion.

    If I had to rank these cases, I would rank it like so.

    1. Griffin Reveal - RECOMMENDED
    2. Circle Design TPU Case - RECOMMENDED
    3. Gear4 Thin Ice. - DO NOT RECOMMEND

    The reason I put the Reveal as my top, is because It feels solid, and If it were to drop, it would have the most protection. Although the back scratches quite a bit, Looking directly onto it, you wont really notice. I picked this over the TPU case because the buttons were more accessible, and it does come with a case.

    But doesn't matter. You can't see it if you have a zagg skins on. I Took it off cuz It had some personal information I didn't want to put up.

    Yeah the reveal is really scratchy. One reason why I dont prefer hard style cases. The best looking one in my opinion is the 2$ ebay one! Funny huh?

    I'm getting the Diamond Design TPU case, that might be my favourite, just because I don't really like the circle too much.
