    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know a good case for the iPod touch 2nd gen I own. I would like something with a slim profile and solid (no silicone) protection, and minimal if any graphics. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The Speck Candyshell is a nice case, its silicon on the inside but plastic on the outside so you don't really feel it and it has a pretty slim profile. I think it's about $20 from amazon
    Hope this helps!

    I don't think those are slim at all.


    Try out a Contour Flick. REALLY slim. Barely has the lip, and makes your ipod as thin as a naked iphone if not thinner.

    The Belkin Grip VUE is really awesome. Not bulky, but the material is sturdy while flexible (NOT silicone :D). The only problem is that the clear case yellows (at least mine has) so i suggest getting the darker colored one.

    the Switcheasy NeoTouch puts your iPod at around the thickness of an iPhone 3Gs. not super slim, but pretty decent (slimmer than both the Rebel or the Torrent). i can attest to its quality and protection! otherwise check out their Nude.

    If I was thinking about the Candyshell I'd just get the nude. Nice case.

    Anyway, I'm liking the Rebel a lot. What am I in for with that one?

    Maybe not the rebel but the torrent supposed to be thin enough to dock and it offers good protection.
    Probably.
    Cool.

    What?

    I meant to ask what the thickness of the case was, if I could dock it with a Bose SoundDock, what kind of maintenance it might have, etc.

    at least the original Rebels had issues with the bottom sagging a little. the rebel is a rubber piece with a plastic exo-skeleton that snaps over the rubber.
    i went with the Neo because it is super thin rubber, then two plastic frames that click over, plus it is thinner than the Rebel. better protection, no sagging. i'm not sure on the Torrent.
    the Neo (and Rebel I believe) come with a dock adapter so if the Bose sounddock uses the universal dock then they would fit no problem.

    for comparison:

    You might want to go for the torrent because its supposed to be able to dock.

    That's not a huge issue for me, because I have a Scosche adapter (for Bose SoundDock Series I) that doesn't use/need a dock adapter. I like the Rebel better.

    To everyone who suggested a case, thank you so much for your input and help (liamkp).

    I have a black on black Rebel Touch in the mail after seeing it and loving it on a friend's iPod touch.

    Hey I just ordered a white Torrent Touch and hopefully it should be here sometime this week. If people want I can do a review and probably some pictures.

    Sure... But I'm doing the exact same thing, and I just happened to have mentioned it, so don't advertise it here.

    So... your doing a review? If you are what is wrong with more than one review? Also, I didn't advertise anything. Oh, and I thought you ordered the Rebel, not the Torrent.

    Si, and I don't mind you doing it. I just don't want this thread getting steered in a different direction just in case it is relevant and useful to someone else.

    *goes in corner, remains overprotective*

    I guess I'm confused on how that is steering in a different direction, your thread isn't based on one certain case....

    Pay no mind, my friend jumped on my computer and started trolling all over the place. BOTTOM LINE: posts were not me, don't care, go ahead.

    Hopefully they make Torrents and Rebels for the iPod Touch 4G.
