After trying another "popular" rated case for K2 and promptly returning it, I bought this one to try. This case is just what I was looking for. As another reviewer pointed out, the shipping price is outrageous, these are not heavy items. The case is a nice soft leather as described, fits snugly, but K2 can be removed fairly easily if necessary. I bought the black stone and the red stone, as we have 2 kindles in my family. The red is a beautiful color. The black is nice and rich. Both frame the kindles viewing screen nicely, which I find helps while reading. Darker colors give the illusion that the screen is easier to read, at least that's my feelings. (the white kindle does nothing to enhance the reading experience) The case does fold back easily to hold open while reading, and closes securely. It does seem to add a little weight to the K2, but the security for kindle is worth that to me. I can still put it in my bag easily and take it with me, it feels well padded, kindle is not going to fall out, or get scratched. I do not have any issues with this case covering buttons or ports at all. Fits like a glove. I have a skin on one Kindle and it still fits nice and snug in this cover. The light that ships with it is ok, its lightweight, a little flimsy, and just an added bonus. It does clip onto the top of K2 not on the spine of the case. In closing, I am happy with this case, looks, feel, security, has it all.
