Very good fit and works well to protect your kindle.
Ted
The rubberized case is fairly thick and while that is good for protection it does add bulk to the device.

My kids have dropped the Kindle numerous times and the Gumdrop case has saved it every time.

Let me start of by saying I already had a case for my Kindle Fire. I wasn't unhappy with it, not until I started using the Gumdrop case. I also have the Marware leather case. It was okay. I will NOT be going back to that Marware leather case now that I have been using the Gumdrop case.

Con:
-It can't stand the kindle upright
-It collects lint

Pros:
-Lightweight
-Awesome looking (LOVE the color!)
-VERY durable
-Hard plastic screen protector
-Touch screen works great under the above mentioned screen protector
-I've dropped my kindle multiple times (on accident!) with no consequence
-The texture of the durable rubber backing makes it easier to hold (I'm dropping it less now! haha)

I highly recommend this Gumdrop case. I notice that some have complained that it makes the Kindle too hot or overheats it - I have not had this problem. I play games for hours and read for even longer... No problems whatsoever. If I end up having any of these issues, I'll update my review.

I ordered this for my 8 yr old daughter's Kindle Fire HD not knowing it wouldn't fit. The description of product just said 7" Kindle Fire but didn't specify that it was not compatible with the HD model. Being I have never owned a Kindle Fire before, I didn't realize there was a difference in the two. Even though I didn't get to use, it seemed to be a very good product and would offer great protection for the device. Wish they offered it for the HD model. I would definitely buy it.

If you're worried about your Kindle surviving a plane crash, alien invasion,or thermonuclear war, this is the protective case for you. The thing is so well padded, it looks like you could drop this off a ten story building, or shoot it with a shotgun, and your Kindle would be fine. It's amazingly durable, easy to install, soft and comfortable to hold, and the built-in screen protector is terrific. And with the almost neon-bright, green coloring, you'll never forget your Fire on a subway or a plane. Those are the pluses.

The downside is that it makes your slim Fire quite a bit larger and heavier...about the weight of a good-sized trade paperback book...and it's not the least bit subtle. Holding this thing, people could spot you in the dead of night from a mile away. It also doesn't have any kind of stand, so you have to lay it flat to type on it or hold it up if you want to watch a movie. But I have to say, I like it even better than the slimmer, fancier, leather case that I bought with my Fire originally. For some reason, it just feels more comfortable in my hands and I feel safer lugging it around with me to more places.

That said, I got this free for review. Would I have paid $50 for it? No, I don't think so. At $25, definitely. But c'mon, it's basically a thick, molded rubber sleeve. It couldn't have cost more than $3 to make. Charging $50 for this is absurd.

I bought my dad a Kindle Fire as a Christmas present last year and as it is he doesn't get a lot of use out of the device. I on the other hand love the simplicity of the device and love reading so end up using the Fire more than him.

The first case I purchased for the Fire was a standard, black-leather folio case with a soft microfiber lining. It looked really sharp on the Fire but didn't really afford much extra protection. So the hunt for a new case began and that's where I first discovered the Gumdrop cases.

This little case is made from some heavy duty silicone that fits tightly around the Fire in its lime-green glory. I love the splash of color and it matches the color of my wife's M-Edge Kindle Jacket. The color is loud so if you're looking for something more subtle this just isn't it. The silicone skin and screen protector do a fine job protecting the Fire from damage. I let my 8 year old nephew play with the Fire and he tested the impact resistance of the case within a few minutes without a scratch to the device!

There are a few factors that keep me from rating this product higher though:
1. The silicone skin is a dust & hair magnet! I have two French Bulldog's and the Gumdrop is like a Frenchie hair catch. Seriously, Gumdrop should consider making a pet-hair broom out of this stuff!

2. The screen protector is extra smudge and oil sensitive and is more difficult to wipe cleanly than just the regular Gorilla-Glass on the Fire.

3. The skin fits so tightly around the Fire the device gets very hot when in use or charging. I got to the point where I was taking the skin off the Fire whilst charging.

Get a grip on your sleek and slippery Kindle Fire with this rugged tire-tread looking protective case by Gumbdrop. The build is similar to Otterbox's Defender cases for the I-phone. You get a hard polycarbonate interior shell, this one only covering around the the forward half of the fire (the more vulnerable area) and well wrapped by a thicker, chunky rubber outer layer. The case also comes with a screen protector that will help keep the dirt and smudges off your Fire.

I've tried other cases with my Fire. A sleeve and two different folio style covers. While all did their job, I was never 100% happy with them. I was skeptical of the Gumdrop case because I really didn't want to add bulk or weight to my Kindle Fire. Plus, it doesn't offer a stand or a hard cover to protect the open front.

Little did I know what true joy this unique case would offer for my Kindle Fire that totally changed my outlook.

GRIP.

Oh my goodness. That quirky tire-tread design gives me the best grip ever for my Fire. This is what I've been missing all along. The ability to get a solid grip on my one pound Kindle Fire and not feel like its gonna slip out of my hands or make my hands fatigued. My other cases did not offer me that comfort. This Gumdrop Tech Series case did. It made me fall in love with my Kindle Fire all over again. I'm actually using it more now than before because I grip it with confidence and knowing it is also well protected.

If there is one thing I'm not completely sold on is the protective screen cover. It works with the touchscreen, there's no problems there. I don't like that it has a bit of a haze to it degrading the view quality of Kindle's vivid display a bit.
