    Looking for a sleek case that provides quality, and protection? READ THIS!

    Introduction: Hey guys! This is my first Post and first thread on MacRumors, but isn't my first review! If any company reads this review and wants to send me something to review, I am more than happy to. :apple:

    Company Info: Incipio is a relatively old company, starting in 1999. They produce cases and shields for many popular electronics including the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Blackberrys, and Macs. From my experience, Incipio has good customer service.

    Price: $19.99 retail price.

    Specifications:
    • Ultra-Durable, Ultra-light
    • Extremely thin, less than 1 mm!
    • Polymer case
    • Includes two Screen protectors and one microfiber cleaning cloth

    Packaging and Accessories: The packaging is a nice, thin box that comes with a clear viewing window to view the case. Incipio does do a good job with accessories by including two screen protectors for your iPod Touch and a little microfiber cloth. This is good to add in the package considering the price retails for about $20.

    Build Quality: For the most part, the Incipio Feather is a pretty durable case, but will not provide the absolute best protection due to its thinness and due to the fact that it does not wrap around the edges of the iPod Touch. It just sits around it and not on it. The case is a snap on case and the word "Incipio" is labeled on the bottom of it. I chose to get this case in white because I think it looks the best in that color although Incipio does provide more colors. The Incipio Feather is also the lightest case for the iPod Touch that I have ever carried. For an extremely light case and thin case (less than 1mm thick), this thing does the job very well.

    As you can see in this picture, the case sits around the edges, so if you drop your iPod, the screen will be hit and not the edges of the case.

    Protection: This case does not provide the best protection. Due to its thinness, the Incipio Feather will eventually crack due to its thinness, but if you take care of it, it will last you quite a while. As for protection goes, my iPod does not have a single scratch on the back because of it. This wont do a good job of protecting the screen if you were to drop your iPod, but for the most part, this case does a fine job.

    OVERALL IMPRESSION: The Incipio Feather is a good case for around $20, but if I were to buy another case, I would not buy an Incipio Feather. If you are looking for a case to protect the back of your iPod while looking sleek and stylish, THIS IS THE CASE FOR YOU. I personally haven't seen a case that looks as sleek as this one. The case is built pretty well, but not very durable. Good case if you don't drop your iPod too much (that's not me :rolleyes:)

    VERDICT: Good Case, Recommended

    Thank you for reading my review on the Incipio Feather Case. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions that you have. Also don't hesitate to send me a case to review! Thank YOU!!! :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple: :apple:

    I like this one. It looks like it would be easier to take out of your pocket than the silicone ones.

    Nice Review. Thanks!

    I was wondering if taking the Incipio feather case on and off my iPod touch 4g would cause it to loosen. Because with it on, my touch can't dock in my iHome, without it, it can. So I'm stuck! Ideas? Solutions? Help?
