can this be used for swimming laps?
I am a swimmer and have had multiple MP3 players to use while swimming. While this case will protect your iPod from the water, this was not its intended purpose. In my opinion, I believe the case size, and lack of truly waterproof earphones and a waterproof jack, makes this case unsuitable for swimming.
With that said, I love this case for keeping my iPod safe in all kinds of differing environments. It is an awesome case, just not meant for swimming.
This is just my opinion.
not sure, i just use it to pack the i phone and protect it on dive trips/boats
You probably could, it may be a little bulky to swim with. But it definitely keeps the water out.
