Product Description

The verdict is in: The Eco-Flip is the perfect smart accessory for the stylish, eco-conscious Kindle reader–case closed. Marware didn’t just create a flip-top leather case–we created a flip-top responsible leather case with tons of added functionality. From its innovative elastic hand strap system to its soft charcoal microfiber interior, the Eco-Flip was engineered with unmatched functionality and uncompromising style. In addition to the convenient interior hand strap that helps hold the Kindle securely while walking, exercising, or lounging around, the Eco-Flip also offers an inner storage pocket that’s great for cards or cash, a non-slip interior safety tab that locks the Kindle safely in place, an elastic strap that helps keep the case open or closed, easy access to all ports/buttons, and a sleek design. The Eco-Flip for latest generation, 6" display Kindle is an attractive case designed to improve your reading experience. In addition to the style and functionality, Marware utilizes durable eco-leather, so each Eco-Flip case helps protect your investment and the environment. What's so great about eco-leather? The tanning process used to make this leather uses fewer toxins than traditional leather tanning. This minimizes toxic runoff into the ground and water tables. Throughout the entire process, the leather remains RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant. No chlorine, no sulfuric acid, and no petroleum/chemical based dyes. This is real leather, without the environmental impact of standard tanning and dyeing processes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kindle Case December 25, 2010
By CMH
Verified Purchase
I bought this with some trepidation. Cases and covers are somewhat personal so, until you actually see and use the case, you don't know if it is "for you".

Well, worries over for this case.

First, I did not want a case that made the Kindle too thick or too heavy. This case does the trick. With the Kindle installed in the case, the case is 13/16-7/8" thick, 4 7/8-15/16" wide and 7 3/4-7/8" length. It adds about 6 ounces to the Kindle, so not bad at all.

Next, fit and finish should look good: The outside of the case has nice lighter toned (gray) stitching as a highlite to the dark case color. The stitching rims the edges and the mesh speaker holes. The brandname on the case is understated and not in your face (a good thing). The backside of the outer case has a strap to keep the case closed and the two speaker holes. They are triangle holes, lined with stitching with mesh vents.

Flip open the case and you see the internal look. Again the same stitching highlights edging. There are access cutouts for all connectors (bottom), buttons (left/right sides), and amazon/kindle name (top). The screen and keyboard are not hindered or blocked at all. However, if you have really big fingers/thumbs, the left most keyboard keys and the right arrow on the cursor pad may be a challenge.

With the flip case open, what was the inside of the closed front case is now the outside of the back of the case (where your fingers are holding). There is a sleeve that you can slide your fingers into to help secure the Kindle. This actually releaves most, if not all, of the pressure that your thumb feels while holding the Kindle. To one side of the finger sleeve is a vent for access to a small pocket.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not functional as an easel stand December 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
I am not thrilled with my Marware Eco-Flip cover and may even return it.

PROS:
1 - The material and construction are nice.
2 - The Kindle fits in the case very well.
3 - I like that the front, or face, of the Kindle is completely open. (On some other brands of cases there is a strip of leather that goes across the Kindle, above the keyboard and below the screen. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but having a choice of both, I prefer the fully open face.)
4 - The strap on the back of the Marware cover (when opened) for your hand is nice, though I wish it was a little wider. My small hand does not fit as fully under the strap as I would like. This strap is the main reason I bought the Marware cover. Larger hands will likely find the strap even more convenient to use because their fingers will fit farther under it.

CONS:
1 - The biggest con, and the reason I may return it, is that the photos show the Kindle standing up easel-fashion. However, it will NOT stand up this way on its own, not on any normal table surface. There is nothing to prevent the case from sliding open when you attempt to use it this way. The only way the Kindle would stay upright is if the surface you put it on is textured, like on a tablecloth or some other textured surface where it would not slide open. (I listed a possible solution below.)
2 - I do not like the elastic closure strap. It is very tight if you want to use it around the closed case.
3 - I was reading the other reviews and someone mentioned that the width of the spine at the top, when the case is open, makes it difficult to attach a reading light. I have not tried using my light with it yet, but I can definitely see where that may be a problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marware Eco-Flip Case November 10, 2010
By AJ
Verified Purchase
Got this case today for my latest generation Kindle. Love it! It fits perfectly in the case, but still allows easy access to all buttons, keys, charging port and the headphone jack. There is even a screened in mesh part over the speakers so that sound is still audible. Leather cover is as expected. Inside microfiber has a bit of a funny smell to it, but I assume that will dissipate over time. Only complaint is that the plastic adhesive used on the bottom corners to keep microfiber pieces joined together is somewhat jagged at the edges in two places. Not a huge deal, but I had to take scissors to snip that tiny jagged piece off because it was right where I rest Kindle in my palms. Definitely would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very User-Friendly December 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
The Kindle fits in the case perfectly. There are holes for all the peripherals so you don't ever really need to remove it from the case. It is sufficiently padded so you don't have to worry if it's accidentally dropped. There is a grip on the back of the open case where you can insert your hand for a more secure hold while reading and also have a thumb free for page turning. All in all a very convenient way to carry your Kindle safely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Helpful November 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
When I first purchased my Kindle, I didn't think that I would need a "cover" and thought that the covers were just extra ways for the producers to make money. I quickly realized that I was wrong: if I'm going to use the Kindle a lot and take it with me in the car, in my bag, etc., I needed to have something to protect it. I decided on the Marware Eco-Flip because I liked the photographs showing it as a kind of easel stand. I have not been disappointed. The case performs the basic function that I needed--protecting the Kindle--but it is also stylish and practical AND does not use real leather. I'm more than happy with my decision to purchase the Marware Eco-Flip Case.
