EVERY SINGLE CASE WATER TESTED
To give you confidence to go everywhere with your LifeProof iPhone, iPod and iPad we water test each and every case we make. Not only that, after the test an independent agent performs additional testing and even puts randomly selected cases through a second water test. We never ship a case unless it has been successfully tested. As LifeProof employees we use our cases every day, so we only make cases we trust ourselves!
DESIGNED TO MEET OR EXCEED THESE SPECIFICATIONS:
Military Standard 810F-516
MIL STD 810 F is the standard that addresses a broad range of environmental conditions, with MIL STD 810F-516 being the section of the standard that is specific to functional drop. This standard requires that the item can physically and functionally withstand the relatively infrequent, non-repetitive shocks encountered in handling, transportation, and service environments. This may include an assessment of the overall material system integrity for safety purposes in any one or all of the handling, transportation, and service environments.
IEL 60529 is the standard for Ingress Protection from water and dust for enclosures. IP-68 is the most rigorous classification in this specification. The first characteristic number describes protection from solid foreign objects. An enclosure with a characteristic number of 6 can withstand exposure to circulating talcum powder for 8 hours with no dust ingress after that period. The second characteristic number describes protection against water. An enclosure with a characteristic number of 8 exceeds all other water protection levels and is specified by the manufacturer. For LifeProof, number 8 signifies LifeProof cases will withstand immersion in water to a depth of 2 meters / 6.6 feet for 60 minutes.

I run, bike, swim, rock climb, and workout so needless to say I need a case that will protect my iPod.
Ever since I saw the Lifeproof for the iPhone a coupel years ago, I immediatly began saving for the case if it ever came out for the iPod Touch 4th gen. I stumbled in to my local Best Buy, saw it on the rack and wept tears of joy (not literally orf course..) and bought it. It's been wonderful ever since.
Some of the things I like about it:
Slim and smooth, yet "grippable" enough for runs.
The clear backing is a nice Touch (get it?).
The homebutton is so much more satisfying to press.
The headphone extension makes it that much harder for sweat to drip down the cord to the 3mm. port.
The bad stuff..
The speaker sounds like it's in a box.. which makes sense I guess. Though you could argue that it amplifies sound, it doesn't sound too great.
The included lanyard has yet to find a reason to swing from my iPod.
They don't offer a white front face for the case.. Yet. ;)
The armband they make is not compatible with it (from what I can tell)
For now, this is all I have. As I continue to use it I will edit the review to reflect my experiances with the case.
So far so good Lifeproof :)
