I love this case, I've had it for four months, and it is virtually indestructible. It goes everywhere and anywhere with me, and protects my iPod from almost anything. Worried your iPod (with your Otterbox) will fall on rocks, fall on the job, or fall on any other hard/rough object? No problem. I dropped this thing one time on the ground, the screen protecter was scratched all over and the plastic on the outside was chipped, but when I opened the case, aside from all the dust and dirt, it was perfect. No, you cannot step on this thing and expect it to not crack. I've had two iPods with this case (first one stopped working, had nothing to do with the case), and I stepped on it by accident, and the edge chipped. This is the crowned jewel of protection in the armory of iPods. Oh, and I must warn you. If this stays in your pocket a lot, it is extremely hard to get in and out of pockets.
