Excellent in all but sizing - too short
on November 19, 2011
Excellent construction, attractive design, perfect for what I wanted, BUT how much more would it have cost to make the vertical dimension 1/2 inch longer so the zipper would travel across without strain? At first I thought it would never close, but after tugging and pulling it made it around the upper right-hand protruding corner. Came close to returning it, but decided that most of the time (around home use) just zipping it up half-way would meet my needs. Maybe time will stretch it, but why should that be needful? Do manufacturers never try out their own products? I should add: My Kindle is a Kindle Touch. I don't know if there is a size difference between the Touch and the "Kindle" but the case was advertised as suitable for both.
OK - Six weeks later and I have to eat some crow. The "stretch" promised by some commentators did in fact occur, the case fits perfectly, and I'm very pleased with it. I would raise the rating to a three - five for the final result, one for the irritation of having to dither over returning it for an initial bad fit. We'll forget "over-priced" as that seems to be a commonality among cases.
