Griffin Survivor Review: Bulk Up Your Fifth Generation iPod touch With Protection
If you’ve been searching for a case to protect your fifth generation iPod touch, Griffin may have a solution. The Griffin Survivor may be a bulky case, but it’s one of the best ways to keep your iPod touch scratch and scuff free. This case has a built in screen protector and two layers of protection. The first layer is a hard plastic shell that encases your iPod touch adding a plastic screen protector and a snug fit. The outer rubber layer covers the plastic case providing a decent amount of grip and shock absorption. The Survivor case also has a rotatable door to take advantage of the iPod’s camera, but it doesn't include an opening for Apple’s Loop accessory. This case isn’t waterproof, but Griffin claims the Survivor is shock, rain, and sand resistant. I can’t completely vouch for the durability of this case in every situation, but it does feel solid in the hand. More than anything, it will give you some confidence when using your iPod touch in the wild. Griffin's Survivor case also includes a belt clip, but it's nothing to write home about.
