5.0 out of 5 stars Simply perfect June 21, 2009
I had to wait a while for this item to be stocked, but it was more than worth the wait. What a beautiful cover. It gives the Kindle a substantial feel -- nice to pick up, fold the cover back and start reading. The light bronze color is stylish, not flashy in the least, and the hinges allow for full access to all the buttons. I absolutely love this cover and recommend it without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money June 17, 2009
Great product. The hinges fit easily into the Kindle. The cover folds back and makes it easy to use the left navigation button. It's thickly padded and really protects the device. I dropped a Kindle so I really wanted to protect my new one. Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous and Well Made December 30, 2009
There's not much else to expect from Cole Haan, I've used their products for years now. So, when I saw this beautiful Kindle cover, I bought it! It's a goldish-bronze, not a reddish at all. In person it's is a bit lighter in color than it appears on my laptop monitor. It looks like it's made by a manufacturer of fine leather goods. The logo isn't too obvious, I am not into 'conspicuous consumption'. I avoid buying things that have a logo one can't miss, just not for me. You have to LOOK at the cover to see the logo, which I think is perfect.

It is well-padded and the hinges are easy to insert and remove, which is important to me because it's not a lightweight cover by any means. I take it off when I'm reading in bed so that I can balance the Kindle in my left palm and reach the page keys with the same hand. There is a small pocket on the inside cover that I have found handy for boarding pass stubs and other small bits of paper. A credit card would fit into it sideways easily.

I don't use it that much at home. I put it back into the cover when I take it out or when I travel. It fits nicely in my handbag (a mid-sized handbag).

I think it's truly worth the extra expense (this was posted when the cover was over $100 dollars, now it's a steal!). Several people have stopped me in airports to ask about the cover, it's that striking.

Update 8/20/10:

I've seen a lot of people comment in the forums about cases that atttach using the hinges can crack their Kindles. I've been using this cover for about 9 months now and have had no problems at all. I think people must be referring to a different brand of cover. I can open the Cole Haan cover from the back by mistake and I've never seen any indication of stress to the Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Gorgeous Cover! January 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've had this cover on my mental wish list since I purchased my Kindle about 6 months ago, and I've finally received it! It is absolutely incredible. It is presented quite nicely in a beautiful box, in the event you're considering it as a gift. The bronze color is a bit darker than I thought it would be, and for that reason I wanted to mention that I think this cover would be great for either men or women. I know my husband wouldn't have a problem carrying it. The woven pattern by its design creates a very well-cushioned and secure cover for the Kindle. I have four M-Edge leather platform covers in various colors, which I also highly recommend, especially if you like to read while eating, as I do, as they prop the book open quite nicely. I will continue to use those on a day-to-day basis at home and will save this beautiful Cole Haan cover for the times I go out to appointments or on trips with the Kindle. I can already see that this cover is the ultimate in design, security and style. Unlike my platform-style covers, this cover has the little hinge system, which I really like so far. Thanks to that previous reviewer for letting us know to insert the bottom hinge first :-) I can't wait to take my Kindle out in its beautiful bronze accessory! I anticipate receiving many compliments on it. I give it the highest recommendation. Yes, it is one of the most (if not the most) expensive cover that Amazon offers for the Kindle 2, but in this case, as in many, you definitely get what you pay for. Ten stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Stunner January 19, 2010
This cover is drop dead gorgeous. It feels amazing in your hands and contributes significantly to the feeling you're holding a good book. I am reading again thanks to my Kindle and this beautiful cover. I can't put it down! I'm so spoiled, I have no idea what it's like to read a Kindle without this soft, rich, buttery leather in my hands. The perfect gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply beautiful February 8, 2010

I was so happy when I opened the box and saw my Cole Haan Kindle cover. I must admit I had great apprehension after reading the mixed reviews. I was first attracted to the purple or red patent leather, thought they were fun; feared they could look cheap. So I went for the safe bronze leather. I still thought I might be disappointed after the reviews.

This product is beautifully made, to those who thought differently and returned it; you must have received a bad one. This is a quality item.
I do admit attaching the Kindle took a little time. You have to get the bottom clip in first. This took a little patience. I must have attempted it 10 times, the first nine attempts the bottom clip went half way in, the tenth time it slid right in.

I will come back and update the review after using it for month or more

Its 2 years later and I love this cover more than ever! I now also have a fire & want the same cover. I have looked to see if it's available yet. I hope it is
