Sorry meant to add my son had one of the cheaper Otterbox cases- can't recall which then we got the Defender and love it.

I started a similiar thread recently. We had ordered DD5 an Ipod Touch for a Christmas gift and wanted a good cover for it. I ended up ordering the Otterbox Defender from amazon.com for $25 plus free shipping. Actually ordered 2 of them and older dd put one on her already cracked Ipod. Hoping to avoid that with DD5 starting with the cover.
They are very sturdy. DD22 has one on her Iphone as well.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

My dd has the Otterbox Defender but my dses wanted something different for theirs. I just ordered a couple Survivor cases (by Griffin). One from Amazon for $35 and another in different color from Griffin's website for $32.

Our 13 yr old DD also has the Otterbox Defender for her iPod. We lucked out and got it for under $25 on Walmart.com. They were at least 2x that price in the store.

You'll love it. It's the one the US military approves of - waterproof, drop proof, etc.

I am not following. You bought an Otterbox but your ipod was in 4 pieces within a year despite having one?

Now you bought a Defender (which is made by Otterbox) and it is ok now? What ipod did you put the new case on if the old one was in 4 pieces?

Dawn M- sorry I screwed up the names. We started with the Defender and it was in 4 pieces within the year. Now have the Survivor and along with lots more care and responsibility on my son's part- it's held up. He actually likes the Defender- more comfortable for him to hold and pass to someone.

My kids just have hard cases for their Ipod Touches. My 9 year old's touch no longer has a case as I haven't found a new one for her and hers is like the 2nd generation. I bought her a new Touch and a i-Blason Armadillo case for this one. The best thing I did was purchase a squaretrade warranty as well.

Oh and her 2nd Generation Ipod Touch is still in pretty good condition minus some scratches on the back.

****WARNING****

My DS 9 had the Survivor and took his ipod fishing. It got a bit wet in the boat (just from being on the lake!) and the moisture got trapped IN the case! I was furious --- it was ruined and by the time we realized it, it was too late Amazon reviews indicate he isn't the only one who had this problem.

Bottom line---keep electronics AWAY from water.

DD 15 is really hard on cases ! She broke her Otter Box within 2 months. If bought at AT&T or a retail store it would be under warranty. However we bought it on Amazon for less, so no warranty.

Dd10 (today is her Birthday! ) begged for a Griffin Survivor case like her BFF has. Purchased from Best Buy. She loves it! Time will tell if it is better or not. I am saving my receipt lol! (It was $40 which I thought was ridiculous! )

Quoting myself because Amazon (third party seller) sent me a pink one instead of the black one I ordered, and since it was a third party seller, Amazon could not do an exchange. Worked out perfect though because another third party seller was selling the black one for $18 (free shipping w/ prime). I got it yesterday and it was the right one
I don't know if they are still that price, but if you are looking for one, that is a great price!

My daughter's high school gave all the students iPads this year and provided Survivor cases for them all (courtesy of a local bank). As far as I know all of the iPads are in one piece. My husband has a defender case on his iPad and it protects well but I think its slippery.
