After reading some reviews about this cover that it was not sturdy etc, I decided to try it as I really only wanted a lightweight, protective case. It certainly is light, it barely adds any noticeable weight. The stitching and general overall quality is high, and I really liked the soft inside (where the grooves are).
For so many reviews talking about instability, I could not disagree more. I found it quite stable, and it doesn't budge at whichever angle I set it at, when turning pages, holding it in my lap, or on a table. Within generous reasonable limits of handling, I'd say the cover provides good both protection and stability for its intended purpose.
A small loop for a stylus might have been a nice addition.
As always, Amazon shipping was fast, free (a deal breaker when one lives in Alaska!), and well packed.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase, and would recommend this product.
