Default IPod Case

My 10 yr old has saved up enough money to buy his own iPod touch. When he first started saving I told him if he saved up enough for the iPod I would buy a case. There are so many and I can't figure out which are good and which are junk. So now I'm looking for case recommendations. What do your big kids use?

We need something that will help the poor iPod survive (we are a family of klutzes). It also must not block the headphone jack.

Does otter box make cases for ipods?

That is what I have always used for my phone and they have saved it frequently.

They do! "iPod touch case | Defender Series from OtterBox" https://www.otterbox.com/en-us/ipod-...hoClIYQAvD_BwE


They make the device significantly larger and so it doesn't look as cool. But I have dropped a non water resistant phone in an otter box in to a bathtub and not even needed to dry the phone out. The case kept the phone completely dry. I have also dropped my phone more times than I can think and not had an issue.

They do but DS doesn't like them. They only have 2 very plain colors for iPod. If they had a blue one he might ok it. He specifically picked put a blue iPod and he wants it to still be blue with the case on.

Good to know they work so well though! If we can't find one he likes that is also protective enough I might run it by him again not so close to bedtime (maybe he'll feel less particular).

They aren't pretty or fun as many other covers.

yea the otterbox and I'm pretty sure there's a couple of other big brands that I'm not remembering now. They're pretty heavy duty and covers the whole thing like an armor. But yea, since they're sort of armor like they definitely aren't as nice looking.

An alternative would be getting a glass protective cover and a more basic case. Gives a bit less protection but still a decent amount. That's what I have on my iphone and I've dropped it a plethora of times, a couple of times thinking it's a goner, but it's survived surprisingly well!

My 12 year old has an ipod with a blue otterbox cover: https://amzn.to/3llNhY1

I also highly recommend getting a tempered glass screen protector. We've learned the hard way that otterboxes are great, but the screen can still be damaged through the cover. The screen protector that attaches to the screen helps a lot in protecting it.

Tech21 cases and a screen protector have served us well.
