When you post which case you are waiting for please explain why you chosen that case, and also i know that some of these are iPhone cases but most of them have iPod Touch cases in the making which should be similar to the iPhone ones

The iSkin Revo for the Touch.

Best looking case I've seen (the iPhone one).

If the Vaja cases for the iPod Touch are anything like the ones they make for the iPhone then I will defiantly be buying one, I know there expensive but so is the iPod and paying that little extra for a really good case will be worth it, and to be honest the other cases have nothing on there design and customisation of the Vaja cases.... They just look soooo damn good

<>Edit<>
Oh and I forgot to mention they have an awesome belt clip option which would serve me very well while at work or on my travels, and you can personalise the case too!

I had emailed them to make sure the case was made just for the iPod Touch and they replied within 3 hours. That night i ordered one. At the end of the order i was prompted to give a name and password for PayPal. An account i don't want so i closed the window.

Concerned that i never got a confirmation email or an email that it was sent, i wondered if the transaction completed. I've emailed them 3 times in the past 5 days and NOTHING. They don't reply to me. So i have no idea if it completed.

Has anyone else ordered anything from them before? If so, did you receive any sort of email from them about your order?

EDIT: They wrote back to me. I want to add that what sold me on this case is that there is a strong looking loop built into to top/inside of it. You can add one of clips onto to it. They don't have this written anywhere on their page. I stumbled upon it in a review on them, then watched the intro images of the sleeves and you see it there. If it didn't have that, i wouldn't have ordered.

Please show me something that looks higher quality then the Vaja leather cases because I would be very interested in something better then there’s (a little cheaper would also be nice)

so it looks like Iskin isn't just porting the Revo model over to the Ipod Touch , but making an entirely new model of Iskin for the Ipod Touch. Looks interesting , i was also looking forward to the Speck clear case or the Griffin Iclear case


for now i'm using my own homemade sleve for the Ipod touch made from one of those athletic wrist bands sewed up at one end... works great for now

Still waiting for the iSkin myself, but jumped the gun and bought the bestskinsever skin for the touch to help with the waiting process. Also currently store my touch in an iPod sock. Can't wait till I can take off those stupid plastic sleeves that the touch comes with!!!

i was about to say the vaja is the only one that looks decent, it is pretty cool but i think the flip thing would be annoying, i dont know. Also, I said 'in my opinion' in order to avoid this kind of response. try not to be so offended that my style isnt that same as yours :D (thats a joke by the way)

But the case I am most looking forward to is from http://www.vajacases.com

I use this one. Very simple and smart. The inner lining is silk, so protects the surfaces. Although it's open at one end, it's a tight fit so it won't fall out. Excellent value in my opinion. Many different colours/materials

I find it really strange that no one acknowledges the damage that is done to your iPod by using a form-fitting rubber skin such as the iSkin. I bought the iSkin for my 4th generation iPod and never used the iPod without it. After only a few months of use, all of the dust and particles that the iSkin trapped had rubbed up against the surface of the iPod. I was ultra-careful with it. Without a case, there would have been only 1 or 2 isolated scratches. Rubber skins like the iSkin trap dust particles and cause numerous, obvious scuffs and scratches that would otherwise not accumulate under normal use. It must be that all the people supporting these rubber cases have never used them on an iPod before or dealt with the inevitable friction scratches that they cause.

Personally I want a case like I have for my Blackberry curve from these people:

I also have a thread here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=367030) about it and belive people should conact the company to ask for it, then they will see the demand and produce one.

if you're looking for something to take to the gym, look no further than the DLO Action jacket for the touch. I have had these babies on my past two ipods and am getting my touch one on Friday! They can fall from ten feet in the air and wont break! The padding is great and so is the clip and arm band.

I'm waiting for a better-looking version of Marware's Backwinder (http://http://www.marware.com/PRODUCTS/iPhone-Products/Sport-Grip-Backwinder-for-iPhone)... or maybe I'll get a Speck ToughSkin (http://http://www.speckproducts.com/products/toughskin/ipod-touch/108). Using an old Aqua-colored Apple sock, though. Been working nice.

Well been searching for other case and found this one:

http://store.apple-touch.com/content/accessories/4-25--2534.htm

Its not bad, just wondering if it has a hole in the bottom for the headphones, otherwise i'll have to put it in upside down :eek:

Still wanting a Sedio one as I know I'll drop the damn thing and pretty sure it will survive in one of those.

I just noticed that Vaja have released an iPod Touch case, but i'm not very impressed by it although it would fit my needs for work and does cover the easy to damage part of the iPod

Either the iSkin or the XtremeMac TuffWrap (http://www.xtrememac.com/cases/touch/tuffwrap/index.php) for me! It comes with a screen protector which is a definite plus.

they both are soft and easy to stow and have no worry about expensive fabrics being destroyed or plastic to be scratched. i used a leather case before and as i used the dock often for hook up to hifi, the leathear eventually scratched the hell out of my ipod.

I bought a Wrapper and it's pretty sweet:

http://wrappers.typepad.com/ipod/ipod_classic_ipod_touch/index.html

specifically alcantara/black/band/touch

Fits very well and looks cool too.

They do ship to the US. I paid the basic shipping and it arrived in about a week and a half.

I like the Red Maloo one and the Wrapper for the fact that they have places to put the headphones. The wrapper looks like a slimmer profile but I am afraid of the touch slipping out of it.

Looks like one of the clear plastic cases i had from my SE k800i, and to be honest it sucked, it would get get loads of dust trapped under it and also because the dust got trapped it scratched the screen amd the case left marks on my phone.

Not saying that the griffin case will be like the one i had for my phone but i would stay away from that type of case

I like this case, I think by the time I get my touch there are going to be so many to choose from that I wonít be able to make up my mind!
