Incipio Silicrylic X case for iPod touch review

The rather oddly named Silicrylic X, try asking for that in your local Apple store, is one of a growing number of novel iPod and iPhone cases from Incipio. Billed as an innovative two part carrying case, the Silicrylic X combines a polycarbonate plastic exterior embedded in a shock absorbing silicone core. The combination requires a little more fitting than most cases, but once you get the hang of it fitting and removing the cover becomes a breeze.

Over our test period we found the Silicrylic X to be a good travel companion, rugged and protective while remaining stylish and lightweight. The case design does add a little additional bulk but in a pocket you'll barely notice it. The rubberised feel is pleasant to touch, and while the case hides the Apple logo the Incipio branding isn’t too tacky. As Incipio suggests, cutouts offer good access to controls, touch screen and inputs.

The package includes a pretty good screen protector that isn't a messy chore to fit, small cleaning cloth and equally dinky stand for watching iPlayer, YouTube videos and films. The Incipio Silicrylic X is also available for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Myincipio.com includes useful instructional videos explaining how to fit the case should you struggle with the rather novel two piece design.

OUR VERDICT

The pairing of polycarbonate plastic with silicone core proves a winning match. The Silicrylic X is another quality iPod touch and iPhone case from Incipio, that adds protection and comfort with a novel two part case that's also stylish.
