My wife and I have had these cases for nearly three years. I replaced my first one because part of the bracket that held the iPod in the case cracked. My fault, though, because I had it in the pocket of my shorts while working out at the gym and it caught on the fabric. I won't do that again. I was shopping recently at Best Buy and pulled my iPod out to check something on line and one of the XXXX XXX salesmen said he thought that was the coolest iPod cases he's seen. I told him how much it cost at Overstock and he shook his head in disbelief. Product shipped and arrived on time in perfect condition. I recommend this case completely.
