Pros Great feel, great protection, smart details
Cons If anything... the hard VISOR shield for the screen (explained later).
Summary This case is great! The genius is in the details. I won't bore you with what you can read yourself about it here: http://www.iskin.com/revo2_features.html
The case itself is not too flimsy, yet not too hard; perfect fit and feels great to the touch. Even has anti-microbial protection built into the case!
Everything you want protected is either covered permanently by raised accents on the case (volume, sleep/wake buttons) or conveniently accessible by removing a sturdy cover flap (for headphone jack and USB connector slot). Great details.
And then there's the included clear film for the screen... whoever designed this deserves a raise - simple genius. With other films, my pet peeve was that you couldn't apply them very easily or well enough to cover the screen AND not get anything trapped between it and the film (thereby leaving bubbles and specks). The revo2 film is very easy to apply and has an amazing feel to it when you slide your finger over it. PLUS it's anti-glare and anti-fingerprint. So cool.
The only thing I don't get is the clear, hard VISOR shield that you can snap on and off. Personally, I see no point to it unless I didn't need to use my iPhone for a while and decided to stow it in a backpack or something. In that case, the VISOR shield would be good protection for the screen against knocks and dings from other objects. Otherwise, it just looks odd and you can't use the screen while it's on (but I'm seriously nit-picking on this one).
BUY THIS CASE! It's completely worth the price. I don't work for the company, don't have any special interest at all. It was shipped from Canada and arrived just when they said it would. I bought the revoClip to go with it and it's also a great item, also very sturdy and very functional (can serve as a little stand/dock station for watching movies, making calls or whatever without having to take it out of the clip).
For comparisons sake:
I had a Belkin hard leather case that I had got for free, but it didn't protect the top very well and it wore away really quickly just from putting it in my backpack ONCE.
I also tried an Agent 18 EcoShield for the iPhone 3G. I'm sorry, but... what a piece of crap. The case is way too glossy, collects fingerprints, felt so flimsy. Kudos to them for trying to make something out of recycled materials but... no thanks.
Buy the iSkin revo2.
Pros Very protective.
Cons Visor on back position is useless.
Summary The visor does not fit properly on the back like the original iphone/iskin case. It's hard to adhere to the back of the phone, since the back is curved now, it pops off easily. It will be lost soon!
The old case was better in this respect, but at least now the port cover is part of the case, not plug as on the old case, which was easy to loose just by putting the phone in your pocket
Pros Silicone skin helps protect against rain, spills, drops etc. Film for screen. All buttons and ports easily accessible.
Cons No attachment for hard cover (explained in summary)
Summary This case is great. Easy to put on, looks good, feels good. Not bulky. Provides some good protection from liquids and drops. I like the hard cover that goes on top of the film. Best $40 I spent on a case and much better than leather sliders that compromise access for protection or vice versa.
The only thing that is missing is to be able to attach the hard cover to the back of the case. That way you could store it with your ipod and not have to pocket it. It looks like they attempted to do that, but didn't quite get there or abandoned the idea.
Pros Protects screen, ear phone jack, and data/power port
Cons Hard plastic screen covers does not fit snug on the rear of the case as did the original case.
"Overpriced"on by gregoryhowland
Pros Looks Cool, Decent Protection
Cons Expensive, belt clip doesn't work
Summary I got the revo2 and the revoclip (which was supposed to work with the revo2) and I'm disappointed. The clip doesn't work at all with the Skin, as advertised on the iskin website. Without the option of the clip, this case is useless to me. I used to really like their stuff, but this one's just disappointing.
