If you love your iPod and want it to live a life free of dirt, scratches, and cracks, it would be worth it to consider purchasing OtterBox's wonderful Defender Case. This case is highly functional, sleek, compact, and dare I admit... nerd sexy. The great part is that you don't have to nerd to appreciate the protection this case offers.
The case is composed of two parts. The part that forms the shell and provides the bulk of the protection is a sheet of Polycarbonate. The case is easy to open and the two parts (top and bottom) snap together easily.
