I received my 32GB personalised (engraved) iPod touch on 3rd March. The first night, I was using it extremely careful, trying not to create any scratches. The following day, I bought Belkin Leather Sleeve for iPod touch. (It comes with a protective screen sheet.) Since then, the iPod touch has been leaving inside the Leather Sleeve.

According to the company, ZAGG Inc, invisibleSHIELD is a tough gadget scratch protection film available, origin from US military where it was used to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades from wear and tear while travelling hundreds mphs hour. After applying, I would give it a thumb up. It beats all other skins and cases for iPods.
There's really nothing wrong with other skins and cases available for iPods, but I just don't like the additional thickness (other) skins and cases add to iPods. The reason I bought Belkin Leather Sleeve was simply it added the least thickness (bulkiness) to iPod touch. After seeing the images and videos I saw on invisibleSHIELD website and reading reviews, I knew this is the product for me.
For the sake of comparison, the photo on the left is taken when I first receive my iPod touch, no protective films, no protective skins or cases. Of course the invisibleSHIELD is not 100% “invisible”, but close enough. If you don't look careful, you probably won't notice it. Once applied, it stays there.
invisibleSHIELD does make the reflection of the surface a bit different than without it, and the surface does not feel as smooth when without it (the grip feeling is different), but still quite smooth for touch screens usage. This is not an issue for me. Finally, just for the sack of completeness, invisibleSHIELD has all sorts of precut protective films designed for almost all sorts of gadgets you can think of, including all Apple iPods, Sony PSP, BlackBerry, mobile phones, GPS, PDA, digital cameras and even laptops (many brands including Apple, Dell and HP). If you have some gadgets you don't want to see scratches on them and you don't like the common bulky skins or cases, invisibleSHIELD may be a solution for you.
