Nice…I was looking for a product that would take my sleek and skinny Nano and add 150% of size and weight to it.

Honestly…The 3G Nano is pretty damn robust, all it needs is a screen protector and you can shove it in a pocket, or add a nice neat case for attaching to belt or arm.

If you’re doing something that puts your iPod/iPhone at such risk, maybe it’s time you cut the strings and left your entertainment at home.

The Nano is already encased in aluminum and as Boca says needs only a tough screen protector…
If you are in a situation where you may accidently be run over by a tank or be shot at, then I suggest that you unplug your ipod, put it somewhere safe and concentrate on the task in hand!

i like the over built quality to the case.

the real question for me is whether this thing cuts down on reception for the iphone.  theres a reason why the antenna is covered in black plastic…

I just got the YoTank for my iPhone yesterday. It’s well made and pretty cool but it is big & bulky. It arrived without the two extra screws and allen wrench that it said it would come with. I can not say for sure yet but I do think that it degrades the iphone signal. I’ll test it for a few more days but this thing may be going back.

As I stated in my previous review, this case has definite iPhone signal loss issues. I would not buy this case if I were you. Now I’m trying to contact the company and they will not return any emails! Stay away from this case for your iPhone!!!

lol i just bought this case before i read your review, so hopefully its not too bad, apart from the signal, how does the case look in terms of esthetics? i understand that it’s bulky and thats part of the reason i bought it, but does it feel secure and feel good while using it? did you get black or silver? thanks for your input!

I have owned one of the “expensive” iPhones ($599) since early August 2007. I used the PhoneTank case for several weeks prior to its release. We have found little, if any change in the signal strength on the iPhone. I have been using the case every day and have found few problems and I am not sure what is causing the poor signal strength for the other users. I have dropped some calls in rural fringe areas but that is to be expected.

I appreciate any feedback, positive or negative, given on our YoTank products. 

Should someone buy a YoTank PhoneTank and be unsatisfied with the case we will refund their money in full including the return shipping.
