this is an excellent product. the raised foam rubber makes it easy to find my the controls of my ipod through my shirt pocket. no direct protection for the screen but the foam does keep the screen away from flat surfaces. 84cent nobrainer.
I liked this unit until the seam broke and leaked gel out after only a couple of months of light use. I'm hoping that monoprice will allow me to exchange it for a new one. Otherwise, I buy lots of things from here and think the site is great.
PROS: affordable comfortable
CONS: smaller than expected seam holding gel became separated and leaked gel everywhere
