Kid-tough iPod Touch case: He's not a Woogie, not yet an Otterbox.

I think I'm going to get my son an iPod Touch for his tenth birthday, but we're accident-prone people, and I know he'll also need a rugged case to take his tiny abuse. Can anyone recommend something?

An all-in-one solution--shock and scratch protection, screen protection, and maybe even splash protection--would be ideal. SwitchEasy's cases are ultra-protective and visually stunning, but they don't seem to have anything for the newest Touch. Other cases I've looked at don't seem as though they'd be able to withstand drops, or leave the screen unprotected.
My experiences with adhesive protectors for my own devices haven't been great--the hassle of application, peeling corners, bubbles, the hassle of application, peeling corners, and so on . . . but I haven't bought especially high-quality protectors, either, so maybe there are better options that might make other cases possible candidates even if they weren't all-in-ones.
I know there aren't lots of cases out for the fourth generation Touch yet, and even fewer specialized solutions. Is there a case that bridges the gap between Woogie and OtterBox? Thanks for your help!
