For added convenience and protection, the elastic strap is heat-fused to the back shell and secures the MicroShell Folio open or closed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just As Described November 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am a little surprised by the reviews. When I read them yesterday, I was ready to return my case when it arrived today.

I bought this because I wanted the lightest case possible that would provide protection. It is very light. As the product description explains, the case is polycarbonate (an impact and scratch resistant PLASTIC) which has been rubberized on the outside, and the cover is a soft fabric (rubberized with a felt layer on the inside. Yes, the elastic strap is glued, but so what? Glue is a good thing.

It feels "cheap" because it is very light (so light I thought the package was empty). According to my postage scale, it weighs a tad over 3 ozs. The stand does not stay in place unless it is weighted with, of all things, a Kindle Fire inserted into it. Then it works perfectly.

It is exactly as advertised: a very light, form-fitting case that offers good protection for the device with a simple display stand. Nothing fancy. Certainly doesn't have a designer name. But, it does what it is intended for and I am very happy with it. Obviously, I can't comment on durability, but the materials seem of high quality and the finish is excellent.

UPDATE 20 Nov 11:

It is time for an update because I have been using the case for almost a week of intensive enjoyment of the Kindle Fire. It is really an outstanding case! If you are looking for a good balance between weight and protection, I can't imagine there is a better choice. I will address myself to a few issues based on use:

1. The stand function is very simple. You insert the leading edge of the folded cover into a slot on the back. This has worked well for me, although I notice a number of reviewers have commented that it doesn't work well for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Tour of the Microshell Folio Cover by Marware December 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
Length: 2:14 Mins
Just a basic look at the case, so you know exactly what it is you're getting into.

Also, I didn't talk about the inside of the flap at all. It's felty, so it kind of doubles as a screen cleaner as well. I'm kind of a spaz about finger smudges, but they mysteriously go away due to the inside of the cover flap.

4.0 out of 5 stars I actually like this case! November 16, 2011
Color:Graphite|Verified Purchase
I am puzzled with all the bad reviews for this case. I was expecting something terrible to show up when I saw the reviews start popping up yesterday. The case is basically a plastic shell on the outside for the back, and a thin synthetic type material for the front, very similar (but thinner) to Apple's smartcover for iPad 2. The device fits inside the plastic shell perfectly. There is no room for it to move around at all.

The plastic part has a elastic band on the bank which can be used to insert your hand and hold the device when reading on it, or it can be brought to the front to securely close the front flap on the case. Overall it is a slim profile case that adds only marginal bulk to the device. The front flap has in inner velvet lining which comes in contact with the screen and keeps is safe.

Parts that could have been better - the front flap is slim, but a little too thin. I'm sure it will protect the device adequately, but it feels lacking in terms of protection. Not a big deal for me personally because I use the device only at home and am fairly good with keeping my devices safe. The second, the most important drawback of this case is that the stand just plain and simple - sucks! It is very flimsy, again because of the thin material on the flap. There is no way the device can be held on the stand when reading on the Kindle in my lap, for example. The only way the stand stays firm is if it's kept on a flat surface like a table or something. I think if they wanted to keep the material thin, that would be fine, except they should have added some weight in the middle part of the front panel that folds around - this part takes the weight of the stand, and if it was made slightly thicker, it would have worked very well.

Earlier this morning I read the not-so-good reviews on this cover, so I was a bit skeptical. Right away after putting it on my Kindle Fire I knew this COVER WAS A KEEPER. What's to like? NICE AND SNUG - fits like a glove. I'm a frequent traveler, so I will be using it to prop up the Kindle Fire for movies. It worked well for this - only watched a few minutes, but I liked what it did. STAYS CLOSED when you want - I like the elastic strap that secures the whole unit. Seeing that they lowered the price today is an added bonus. WEIGHS NEXT TO NOTHING - I like my electronics to weigh as little as possible since I'm always toting them with me. If you think you will be dropping your Kindle Fire, then this is probably not for you. IF you are like me and want a cover that has a low profile, weighs very little, protects the screen and can be used to prop up the Kindle Fire to watch movies then this is a great option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Case November 16, 2011
Color:Graphite|Verified Purchase
This really is my first review here, but after reading most of the initial reviews of this product I had to speak up. Like another individual, those early reviews had me wishing I could cancel my order for this case; however, I received it today and I am delighted with it. I have 3 other Kindles (of varying ages), each with a different case. My favorite was the one with the built in booklight until I got the MicroShell. This case holds the Kindle snugly, feels good in my hand, doesn't get in the way and doesn't add any weight to an already comparatively "heavy" Kindle. It maintains a sleek appearance and acts as a perfectly sturdy stand as well. Now, if only it came in red or yellow or purple.....
