    There are so few iPod Touch 2G cases out now, you'd be hard-pressed to find one that also has a built-in screen protector. You could get this and this and use them in tandem, if you think that would solve your dilemma.

    For the record, I would just like to say that I think getting a screen protector (for the front) is a huge mistake, since the screen it so hard to scratch that a screen protector won't stop anything sharp enough to gouge it anyway.

    are the incase slider cases from apple the best cases for the touch? i know the 2nd gen one hasn't came out yet. but just asking was it the best snuggest and best grip / tightest and secure case compared to the other cases? or were there better ones? if i get a incase slider caser i won't need a film for my back right? because my BG film on my back looks so bad the sides are really covered all the way and there kind of lifting up.

    when did this come out ? i swear i didn't see this like 2 days ago! im so excited finally now i can take my ipod touch 2nd gen to the gym. also does anyone else just use this without a back film protection? should i keep on my back piece film and put on the case or remove my film? man the sides don't stick down :(

    Can anyone tell if the 3.5MM adapter is required for use with non-apple earphones (i.e. Shure e4g headphones). I don't want to have to carry an adapter with me.

    Thanks in advance!

    What about the weight of the SwitchEasy? I don't want it making the touch too heavy and fear with the 2 layers, it may be. Anyone know the weight?

    FYI, BB website has the Belkin one at 6.4 oz! Must have weighed the entire package as the touch is just 4.05 oz itself.

    me 2 me 2 :D did you buy a film to protect the front screen? if so what kind? and do you plan to just put on the case with no backshield film? because i have a BG full body cover but the back doesn't really get fully covered and it looks sloppy.

    Yeah and a bunch of other stuff, like a dock adapter, headphone port protector, squegee, cloth, etc.(i know that costs maybe a dollar total for them but who cares?)
    I just bought a black one 10 minutes ago!

    I looked at the SE530 online....do you use the straight plug or the 90 degree looking one with this case. The one I have for the e4g is the 90 degree one and was wondering if that fit the case also (without their adapter).:confused:

    Thanks again.

    How does the compare to the Otterbox Defender (I realize the 2G is not out yet). They seem very similiar with the Otterbox looking a little sleeker.

    bottom of Rebel

    When someone gets one of these Touch Rebels from Switcheasy, I'm sure they'll do a review, but hopefully someone will comment on the 30-pin connector cover? I'd like to know if it actually stays closed, or if it's just sort of there and in the way when you want to plug it in. My current cheap "for the time being" case has a little flap cover and I find it irritating. Looking forward to a good review. Thanks.

    The OtterBox is MUCH thicker...... I used to have one for my 1st Generation.... The Rebel is WAY sleeker...

    Dont get iClear

    Yeah I got that iClear thing from Griffin at Best Buy too, only because I was desperate for one as I use mine on the train to school a lot.

    I'm going to be taking that thing back tomorrow for sure and get this RebelTouch case. The Griffin case is the same price ($24.99) and only comes with the case w/ clip, an armband, two screen protectors (mine looked all nasty like someone used em already) and a little cloth.

    The case fits snug but seems like rather cheap construction and looks even cheaper if you take the belt clip off and leaves some exposed metal. The only thing I like about it is that it's clear but the iClear is CLEARLY a rip off.

    Again this case looks pretty awesome and I as well look forward to a review (although I think I'll get it before I see one anyway).

    sorry to say i strongly dissagree the Iclear is what i currently own along with a rebel coming soon and i'd have to say the iclear isnt a design oriented case but when it comes to scratches and drops it does its job well thats its main focus.
