Ah yes, the rebellion continues as SwitchEasy ports their famous CapsuleRebel case from the iPhone 3G/S, iPhone 4 and now it's the RebelTouch for the iPod Touch 4G. The SwitchEasy Rebel line of cases are one of the most distinctive looking cases to this day. There are very little cases out there that compare to the RebelTouch case in terms of design and looks and if you're looking to be different while getting some serious protection for your iPod Touch 4G, you might want to take a good hard look at the RebelTouch case. Catch the full review after the break.
SwitchEasy are one of the few companies that give you all the accessories you will ever need with their cases for your device. This is one of the many reasons why I and many others love SwitchEasy's unique way of doing business and all in a well priced case. The RebelTouch comes with port covers, two screen protectors, video stand and two universal dock adapters.
The RebelTouch case is made exactly like the CapsuleRebel case for the iPhone 4 and is made up from two pieces, a hard polycarbonate UltraFrame exo-skeleton outer frame and a flexible ADSP inner layer that feels sort of like a TPU material. Installing the RebelTouch on the iPod Touch 4G is fairly easy and one the two parts come together they feel like they are one with each other. The combination of the two materials give your iPod Touch 4G a great amount of protection against minor drops, scratches and bumps.
The RebelTouch looks exactly like it's thicker brother, the CapsuleRebel and unfortunately bears it's slippery texture. It seems as though nothing has changes since we last reviewed SwitchEasy's CapsuleRebel for the iPhone 4 which also had a slippery feeling to it while holding. The two materials have no real grippy texture even while the RebelTouch has this raised spine which will also make your iPod Touch 4G wobble on a flat surface. Another little issue I've had with the RebelTouch is that it's hard to press on the volume and sleep/wake buttons since they are covered by the flexible ADSP inner layer. You can still press on the buttons but it will require more force than usual. I do wish it had more grip to it but on the bright side the RebelTouch doesn't attract lint to itself.
Even with all these little flaws, I can't seem to not love the RebelTouch. There is something about it that makes you want to keep using it. I really enjoy using the Rebel line of cases and they offer great protection with all the extras I need. Like the CapsuleRebel, the RebelTouch offers a minimal lay-on-the-table design that will keep your screen from touching the surface should you lay it front side down. You can get the RebelTouch in four colors and of course change and mix in two different colors if you've got more than one case. Price $27.99.
