I like to use my Kindle unadorned (i.e. naked as some say). The book like covers get in the way, and add a bit of weight. I also like covers that zip up to help protect against dirt and dust, especially when in my backpack. So when I upgraded from the Kindle Keyboard to the Kindle Paperwhite, I needed a new cover that matched those criteria. This one fit the bill. The Paperwhite fits in their nicely. Very snug. The case has some inner padding to help protect the device. The case with the Kindle in it is not too bulky. When in the cover, it fits completely into the back pocket of my (men's) jeans. And the built in handle is a nice touch. You can slip your hand through it when carrying other things to ensure you don't drop it. But it does not otherwise add bulk or "get in the way" in any way.

I got the coral color so the case stands out a bit when sitting on a desk or table among other clutter. It also makes it easier to find in a bag/backpack. My previous case was red for this very reason, and it proved effective in addressing those needs. Plus it's nice to have some color in your life :) I wish this case was available in a bit of a more traditional "cherry" red. But the Coral is fine.

My only minor complaint, and the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars, is that the zipper does not completely close. There is a small 3/8" (9.5mm) gap where the zipper meets the "fold" of the cover on the top (upper left corner in the product photo). It is a place where dust and dirt could get in when in a bag. But looking at the case, it is easy to see that the only way to have prevented that gap would have been to make the case a bit larger and more bulky. And overall it is a minor shortcoming.

Overall, a great case. And well worth the price when available at the reduced price. Even at that price it is a bit pricey in the "normal world", but very reasonable in the "electronic accessories world" where everything is way overpriced. But just as a restaurant makes its money on drinks, appetizers and deserts, so too do electronic manufactures make their profits on the extras.

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.

First impressions on Zip Sleeve...
I opened the packaging and the Kindle Touch pouch is pretty much what I was expecting. It's good quality and I love the Coral color it's exactly as described, it's a pretty color and a classy design and I like it. You can tell that Amazon designed these for the current gen kindle expecting people would prefer this to a leather case. I have an M-edge book style cover with a light slot for those times I absolutely have to read in the dark which is almost never.

I really liked the Kindle leather case and the lighted one also but I chose to buy the sleeve instead...why?...well I think the Kindle Touch's form factor just begs you to hold it *naked* I find it much more enjoyable to read that way, I actually wished Amazon would have made this sleeve for the kindle keyboard too. For someone like me who keeps their Kindle in their purse and likes to take it with them in their purse or bag this is perfect. The quality is pretty good and really light weight which is great cause it doesn't add too much bulk to my purse and is cushioned enough to protect my touch. Price wise though I think Amazon could have cut $10 from the price in my opinion but it is what it is and it's the best sleeve I've seen.

Now why 4 stars? I would have maybe given 41/2 but that's not an option. While I think the Kindle Zip sleeve is the best option for people who actually take their Kindles with them, it is a little bit of a tight fit for the Kindle Touch. Amazon could have actually made one a tad bit bigger for the Touch. This sleeve would prob fit Kindle 4 just right but it's a little tight for the Touch so I'll see how this affects using it in the long run but I still love it.

Overall I'm glad I ordered the sleeve instead of the leather case. I'll be using it to bring my Kindle Touch 3G along with me to work and everywhere else :)

Although rather pricey, the cover is very well made, fits the Kindle perfectly, and looks nice. It has a thin inner lining of cushioning material and a nylon zipper. After several dozens of openings and closings the cover continues to operate perfectly.

Easy to use and so cute - love the way it hugs my Kindle. Love to carry it around because of the color. I ordered another one in blue.

A fine case for your kindle. It looks nice and the strap makes it easy to carry along in your hand. The case has a nice feel to it. The only thing is I wish they'd have a small pocket for the kindle white cord. The cord fits easily in the case but it's a little messy in my mind to shove everything in there like you would in a duffle bag. When it comes to electronics, I like to have little pockets to keep my cords neat and separate. (The kindle has just one cord though.) It's a fine item and looks classy. I would recommend it. I have two kindles and I like this case better than my other case, which actually cost more.

This is a very nicely crafted, good quality, padded case, with just enough slack to store a few sheets of your notes/papers along with your kindle. Coral colour is very attractive, I bought it for my daughter as a Christmas present, she had the choice of returning for a different brand or colour but she loved and kept it. The zipper goes around 2 edges, and a wide leather strap on the side makes it safer to carry by putting your fingers through it eliminating accidental drops. At this price it is a good choice.

I purchased 2 Kindles (for International use) with sleeves. However, the sleeves are about 2 inches too short. In other words the Kindle is almost covered and I am unable to close it. I am not sending them back as the postage will cost more than the value. However I would like to purchase the correct cover/sleeves. Please advise which one I should order. Otherwise, no problems, I love the Kindle concept.... I purchased the second one for my sister.
Kind regards
Mary

ABSOLUTELY don't own a Kindle without the zip sleeve. Not only is it easier to find your Kindle (order a bright color) but it protects your screen.

The other 700 or so reviews have covered it. I will just say the quality is OK for the price I paid (11.99 on sale). There is the usual slight odor associated with these cheap "Made in China" products, but hopefully it will go away in time. Not a deluxe case in any way, just a simple, "good enough" case for your kindle or other similarly sized items (i.e. phone, mp3 player, etc.). A slipcase design with some waffle style padding.

It does look fairly nice and it gets the job done. As I said, I got it on sale and it's OK for what I paid, but I would be disappointed at the regular price -- not up to that level in my opinion. So watch for a sale or pass it by.
