After one year with my Lifeproof Nuud case for my iPad 2 I decided that I needed one for my iPod 5G. I ordered the case on lifeproof.com and within a week it was in my hands. When I opened the box I found the back to a case and 2 screen protectors. I thought to myself that it couldn't be possible for a screen protector to protect my $300 device from water damage. I installed the case with the white screen protector to match my ipod. It is a beautiful case, displays my yellow iPod touch perfectly. Even after taking my ipad to the beach, in the pool, in the shower, and rinsing in the sink several times I was still apprehensive about submerging this case. So naturally, in a moment of spontaneity I picked it up and dropped it right into my glass of water. It really does protect my device, not that I ever had a doubt ;)
One downside... The screen protector that serves as the faceplate for the fre case can only be used once. If you decide to take it out of the case you need to use a fresh faceplate. As someone who likes to take my device out of the lifeproof case to set it on a dock or use a 30 pin adapter for my car this is definitely a design flaw. It's small price to pay however, for a case that provides the protection that I only trust from Lifeproof. Also you can purchase two extra faceplates on lifeproof.com for $14.99.
