Looks heavy ... and risky ... The metal would probably scratch the iPod ... eventually.

It’s got foam on the inside.  The metal doesn’t touch your iPod.

Those plastic cases out there I’d avoid…

I am not a big fan of those Exo2 as well.  I just put my iPod in those soft fabric bag where people use to put their mobile phone in.  Fit perfectly.

I have no idea what kind of stairs they have in Matias land but they can’t be very big ones. And dropped onto concrete from what height? Two inches? Seriously, hard disks are fragile beasts, especially whilst running, and falling down anything that one could reasonbly describe as stairs would most likely kill one complety or at least damage one enough to either break down quicker than you might expect usually. Of course these “tests” could of been conducted whilst the hard disc heads where parked (turned off, or inbetween read bursts perhaps) in which case maybe it might survive. Or perhaps theyve managed to squeeze some sort of spacial rift into it and theres actually several inches of foam inside that aluminium case?

I sure as hell wouldn’t want to test out their claims anyway, would you?
