DSstyle’s Superior Soft Pouch

pouch bannerI have, yet again, another review from Distinctive Styles. The Superior Soft Pouch is a simple pouch meant to be used with the iPhone 3G/3GS, however, it will work with all Apple iPod models. The pouch is an incredibly simple product but provides a big punch for what it is mean to do – protect your device.

The pouch is made from a durable material called flannelet, a material similar to that of felt. The fabric is incredibly soft and will do no harm to the device, nonetheless, it will attract dust and pet hair. Other than that, the rest of the product is spot on. It will protect your device 360°, from the face of the device to the back of the device. On the front of the pouch is Distinctive Styles‘ logo (a simple and elegant addition that I personally find rather appealing). The Superior Soft Pouch also includes a lanyard so that you can go right ahead and hang it from your neck if you choose to do so. For an incredibly low price tag of $8.26, I recommend going ahead and picking one up for yourself. They also come in your choice of six different colors: black, blue, gray, yellow, and green (all colors of which have a pastel-like tone).

DSstyle’s Twill Series

Twill_header_002DSstye’s Twill series case for the iPhone 3G and 3GS as well as the iPod Touch 2G and 3G is and amazing case. It is available in both black and white leather. This case has a unique feature to it, though. The leather is interwoven giving it a carbon fiber look and feel. Not only does this provide for aesthetics, but it also strengthens the case making your device that much more protected.

With all of the great features of the Twill series, there is also one fault that I have found and that is that with the iPod Touch version, the case goes above the top of the device (as seen in the video review below). Although this is not a significant problem, it can pose a problem when one would want to press the power/sleep button. Other than that one fault, the rest of the case is virtually flawless.

In order to use the Twill with your device, you simply slide your device into the case from the top. The inside of the case is lined with a felt-like fabric making sure not to scratch your device, and surprisingly enough, despite how easy it is to insert the device, it will not fall out of the case on it’s own. There is also a cutout on the front of the case for the home button, a cutout on the bottom the case exposing the headphone jack and 30-pin dock connector, as well as a final cutout on the left hand side exposing the volume rockers.

Overall, for a case that only costs $28.09 $31.42, I highly reccomend for you to go ahead and take a quick look at it over on DSstyle’s website. Even if the Twill series doesn’t appeal to you, check out some of their other cases, I’m sure you’ll find one that you like.

DSstyles Metallico Series

I am thrilled to announce that DSstyle’s and I have made a business arrangement where they will be sending me products throughout the rest of 2009 for me to review. So far I have received four products from them, the Twill series case, two carrying pouches (most likely a giveaway), and the Metallico series case which this review is for.Metalllico_black_001

The Metallico series is an incredibly simple case made from 100% plastic and has a retail price of $20.69. Granted, it is a bit pricey for a piece of plastic, however, the design is superb. The case is designed for the iPod Touch 2G/3G and the iPhone 3G/3GS. The back of the case mimicks the back of the iDevice completely, including the Apple logo, device name, allotted GB, a generic serial number, as well as the other symbols that can be found. Unfortunately, the case only comes has the option of displaying “16GB” so if you happen to have a different size device, you’re out of luck.

The case is extraordinarily simple. It is a snap on case so it is very easy to get on and off and it only covers the back of the device (that means that the chrome bezel is exposed). This has upsides as well as downsides. For one, it adds virtually no weight and/or bulk and it keeps the slim design of the device. On the other hand, it offers absolutely no protection to the chrome bezel or the front face of the device. Again, this adds the looks and feel of a slim case, but it lacks in protection. I have to admit that I have dropped my iPod several times while using the case and it has fallen on the front face once. I was lucky enough to have no damage done to the device, but it is very plausible for damage to be done if the device falls face down. Also, on the inside of the case, there is nothing separating the back of the device from the inside of the case. As previously mentioned, the case is 100% plastic and although it is very smooth, it still has to potential to scratch the back of the device.

Overall I’d say that if you want a smooth, sleek, and comfortable case, but not concerned with price to protection ratio, go for it. It’s a fantastic case and I personally use it day in and day out (for about the past four weeks). The only thing that would make this case that much more appealing, would be if the price was lowered to about $10-$15.
