    what is the current best ipod touch leather case and rubber case to buy?


    And what would be an advantage of leather over rubber and vice versa?


    I want something compact with no frills. The reason I want it is to protect my ipod from falling on the ground and to decrease the chance of my ipod being destroyed if it falls in water.

    For protection of falls, I would definately get a leather case.

    I have a 5.5 30GB iPod Video, it's in a DLO Leather case and dropped it numerous of times, without a single dent or malfunction!

    I have a belkin leather folio, and it's really nice. Dropped it a couple time, no problems. I heard Vaja cases were good(leather) but the price is a bit steep.

    Most of the leather cases out there are a tiny bit bulkier than the rubber ones as most have a flap or something like that.

    Nicest leather out there is either Piel Frama or Vaja Cases IMO. But they are both pricey. Sena Cases are also very nice leather and a step above mass market (Griffen, Belkin, etc.) for not too much more in the $$$ department.

    Griffin Elan Form case for iPod touch. (there is an iPhone version as well)

    Best case i've ever bought for anything. It's two parts that snap together which keeps the profile thin, and it's very durable.

    Black incase case. I bought it and it is quite amazing. My iPod touch falls all the time in it and not even a dent.

    ^he asked for leather or rubber, incase is plastic ya?

    best leather case would be most things from vaja ('cept those weird things that grip the ipod by the sides, i can't see your ipod not falling out of that)

    and ^, why does two snap-on parts keep it thin

    they could be think snapon parts or a thin single piece

    and people say vaja is expensive, that piel thing somebody mentioned is alot more expensive (70 euros = 100~120? dollars), and they don't look as good as vaja 'nor can you customize them with different kinds of leather and colors and engravings and such

    and those rubbery silicon type cases annoy me alot, they stick to your pockets and are hard2get out ): atleast the ifrogz touchwrapz whateverz is

    Actually no, you are incorrect. There are incase cases that are rubber. I know because I have one.
