3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior to Old Covers But Still Okay October 17, 2010
Verified Purchase
I used M-Edge covers exclusively for my old Kindle, and loved them. They were very sturdy, and very well made with quality suede, cloth, and excellent stitching.

So, I ordered an M-edge cover along with my new Kindle 3. Unfortunately, the quality seems to have dropped from their old covers. Both the suede and cloth are inferior to the old covers. The old covers used to be plush where as the new ones are made of a rougher material, and the suede inside is definitely not as thick or soft. Mine even had hard bits of glue that would have rubbed my screen, so I had to rub them off, leaving little bald spots.

The bottom leather bands were also creased and needed to be thinner (they partially cover the Up Arrow key and the Back key).

That said, it's still snug around my Kindle, lightweight, and functional. Definitely not as great as the old covers (which I would have recommended over any other covers). Not sure if I'd buy another, but they're okay.

The pink is more reddish than the picture, and actually fairly attractive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect case for a perfect eReader December 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
I just received the M-Edge Trip Kindle Jacket for my new Kindle 3G, and without a doubt, I can say that I am very satisfied with this product. The straps snuggly hold the Kindle in place, the whole case feels well made and comfortable in the hand, with a slightly padded front and back to protect it from falls. The Moleskine-like elastic band keeps it closed (or open when reading) and the interior is made out of a material that keeps the Kindle well-protected. It is also much smaller than most cases out there, making it much more portable. As a side note, I also purchased the M-Edge eLuminator 2 lighting peripheral, and it's complementary design, long battery life, and dual-brightness settings make it perfect for nighttime reading. This is really THE ONLY CASE worth considering on the market currently (and no, I am not being paid by M-Edge to say that). Overall, two thumbs up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed November 10, 2010
Color:Black|Verified Purchase
This is the first review I have written for a product purchased through Amazon. I was disappointed with the cover when I received it. The black cover picked up everything, dust, pet hair, or any residue on your hands. It is very difficult to clean. The cover makes it almost impossible to turn the switch on the bottom on and off. The stiching is of poor quality and the inside of the cover is splitting from the outside where the elastic attaches. The attachment for the strap that holds the cover closed leaves a grove in the cover and is out of alignment on the back. It looks like this item was rushed without concern for quality. For $35.00, I expect it to at least hold together and allow you to operate the Kindle while it is enclosed in the cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What I Needed For Kindle November 16, 2010
Verified Purchase
This case is super-slim and lightweight. And it's bright so I can always see it in my purse. It does its job to protect the Kindle, but if you're looking for full protection, this doesn't completely encase it...i.e. it wouldn't protect it from rain or something spilling in your bag. For me, that's not an issue. I like how the Kindle fits snugly into the case, and it kind of even feels like I'm holding a book when I have the case open. I definitely recommend this case.

Color:Black|Verified Purchase
I love my Kindle and wanted a jacket to protect it. This is very light weight, yet durable and fits on the Kindle perfectly. It was easy to put on and doesn't add extra weight in my purse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! November 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
Love this cover! The booklight pocket (for M-Edge's light) is on the right outside, which leaves the light protruding quite a bit. I just stuck it between the Kindle & the back cover & it stays just fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clumsy Design May 23, 2011
Color:Green w/ Navy Blue|Verified Purchase
Compared to the "snap-in" version, this is a poor second. Four elastic straps hold it in place but also are ugly, imho. I returned it in favor of another snap in with a light. BTW: The light works very well and on a recent trip found it terrific for those 3 am wake-ups when you didn't want to disturb your mate.
