I already had a soft rubber case, and a hard plastic case. I like these just fine. But I got worried about a hospital stay. Since it was major surgery, and I thought I might be groggy, I decided to buy the otterbox commuter. I did not want to spend that much, but it bought me peace of mind. I didn't drop it off the high bed to put it to the test, but it's construction includes a mix of the hard and soft cases. And it is designed in such a way that there is absolutely no way it would pop off the itouch on impact. Most of the damaged itouches i've seen have fallen on the corners, and the screen have cracked. The corners on this ottterbox consist of a hard case outside with rubber casing underneath- probably the best you could hope for. Comes with a screen protector, which fits great with the cover (I have been unable to use my screen protectors with some of the cheaper cases, which is a problem. I like to upgrade, and a perfect unit sells much faster than a blemished one.)
Overall, if you don't mind spending about $20.oo on a case for a $200-$400 item- go for it! If you're really clumsy, you might want to spend a few more dollars, and buy the chunkier defender model. If I upgrade to the 64g, I plan to do just that, lol! Happy Walshopping!
