5.0 out of 5 stars Great new cover - love the new strap! February 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
This new leather cover made by Amazon for the 6" Kindle is the same excellent quality leather as the black leather cover (also made by Amazon) that I have been using for the past year. (I use my Kindle every day and the old cover still looks brand new.) I especially love the new stretchy strap, as I previously used a thick rubber band to keep my Kindle closed when I travelled with it. The cover is virtually identical on the inside (same hinge-hook system, gray felt lining). Another nice feature of the new improved cover: it is impossible to mistake the back for the front. I understand that some people opened the older-style cover upside down and backwards and damaged their Kindles. All in all, this cover is an improvement over the old one. And I love the new colors, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better! February 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
The old Kindle 2 cover looked nice, felt well made, and provided reasonable protection from the elements, but it had one big flaw: it had no mechanism to keep the cover securely closed. I often found that if I had my Kindle in my bag and it wasn't packed tight, the cover would open on its own through normal jostling of my bag. Sometimes it would even open the wrong way, and that would bend the hooks which attach the cover to the Kindle. Those bent hooks could cause the Kindle itself to crack -- and thankfully, although my hooks bent, my Kindle didn't crack!

The new case adds an elastic band, which keeps the Kindle's cover closed when not in use. It rests in a little groove on the front; when you want to open it, you just pull the band to the side, and it slips behind the body of the Kindle and stays there while you read. When you're done, you slip it back onto the front cover into its groove. Perfect.

Bottom line: unlike its predecessor, this case stays closed when you want it to, so it will provide good protection and not suffer from bent hook syndrome. And it still looks great -- especially in the new burgundy red color. A must-have for a new Kindle, and a good upgrade for those of us with the original case.

4.0 out of 5 stars KINDLE LEATHER COVER February 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love my burgundy red Kindle cover. The cover is a rich burgundy red (my favorite color). The cover makes the Kindle easier to handle and more like handling a paper back book. When I drop my Kindle in my purse, I feel like the Kindle is well protected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Improvement! February 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
This cover is SO much better than the original black leather Amazon Kindle cover. First of all, the color is rich looking (I ordered the red) and the leather has a nice "feel" to it. But the best feature is the elastic band that holds the cover closed. This is the one thing that I thought the other cover lacked. Now I'm not afraid that the cover will fall open when I carry my Kindle in my tote bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lacks elastic corner tabs February 16, 2010
I thought this was going to be the perfect cover to order for my new Kindle. Made the same way as the original black leather case by Amazon but with a strap to keep it closed (yeah!) But then when you open it up there are no elastic bands to hold the right corners in which I feel is very important to keep that side from coming up and putting pressure on the hinges which I have heard can crack the Kindle if pressure is put on it. Please make this with the elastic corner bands and a pocket on the inside would be nice also OR a place where the M-Edge e-luminator 2 light can be place and used (that light is so nice and small and compact that I would love to be able to use it but I don't like the M_Edge cases). I will get a silicone cover for now and wait to see if they will come out with a cover that has all the features I like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New Cover February 17, 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm glad that Amazon updated their original Kindle 2 cover. The color, I choose Burgandy Red, is vibrant and not tacky. The addition of the strap is great! I like that it helps keep the cover closed when I'm not using it, and helps to keep stuff from getting caught in between the cover and the Kindle. The cover still folds back nicely for ease in reading and the strap will actually assist in this, making it even more stable. I like that Amazon kept the hinge over the corner elastic tabs. I've always been careful when opening the cover, so I've never experienced the cracking described by others. The one change I might make would be to make the cover suitable for the numerous types of lights that are available for the Kindle. It would be nice to have a light that could be tucked into this cover when traveling or just when you are carrying it around.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yep, it damaged my Kindle too. June 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
Damaged my kindle just as described by other reviewers - the notches where it connects to the device. This I noticed as I was taking the TWO WEEK old cover OFF of the Kindle to return to Amazon because the strap broke. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Generation Kindle Cover - pay attention! October 2, 2010
I too ordered a cover for my 2nd Generation Kindle but it didn't fit because I received the latest version. After reading through some of the comments, I feel as though Amazon needs to be much more clear about the description for the fit of the Kindle cover. It looks like several people ordered the incorrect cover. What I am surmising is that the 2nd generation Kindle has a 6" display and the entire Kindle product is about 7 1/2" long. Perhaps the newest Kindle is 6" for the entire product? I really wanted to order the cover with the light but decided not to because of price. Now I am reading through the comments that the 2nd generation Kindle doesn't even have a cover with a light. Also very disappointing. As a consumer, I don't have time to keep up with which generation I have. I received the product as a gift (THANK YOU!!) and I didn't even know which generation I had. When I looked through my materials before ordering a cover, I don't think it mentioned anything about 2nd generation. I could be wrong so if it was there, it wasn't very clear. In addition, when I received my new Kindle initially, it would have been very nice to have received a small catalog or at the very least, links to the Amazon site where I could buy accessories specifically for my Kindle. Or it would have been very slick to have a link to a cover that I could access directly from my Kindle. C'mon Amazon! Love you but don't forget how important it is to give consumers enough clear information to make correct buying decisions. Having a picture of the two Kindles side by side might help so we can pick our Kindle from the picture listed.
