Having had other kindles and covers I can compare. Since I leave this nice, compact, light, Kindle in my purse, I wanted something to protect it that would not add weight or bulk. This cover is easy to hold and when I read, I fold the front cover back then use the tab (leather on leather, using the magnets to attach) to hold the front open. It was a bit snug to get the kindle into the corner holders, but you want it snug. The only SLIGHT problem I have is my light. I use the Kandle Flex by Ozeri light. It is a bit tight to get it's base between the kindle back and cover back. If they would make an area where the light goes with elastic SOS it stays snug when not using the light and yet gives when you put a light in, it would be perfect.
After using it for awhile, I leave the top inside (left) tab off the kindle so there is room for the light. It still is snug, no problems. If you want to read with the front cover folded back, you place the magnetic tab over it, as you would when closed and that keeps the cover open. Only improvements, other the easy way to put light on if you want to, is on inside front cover put something so when it is folded back you can put your hand in it to easy hold the kindle while reading, and offer more color choices.
