Product Description

The verdict is in: The Eco-Vue is the perfect smart accessory for the stylish, eco-conscious Kindle reader–case closed. Marware didn’t just create a folio leather case–we created a folio style responsible leather case with tons of added functionality. From its innovative elastic hand strap system to its soft charcoal microfiber interior, the Eco-Vue 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-Vue 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-Vue for 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-Vue 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 Worth giving up a pretty color case January 6, 2011
Verified Purchase
I would like to preface this by saying I researched LOTS of cases. I originally thought I would prefer reading my kindle naked so was looking for a sleeve type case. However, once I received my kindle I was surprised at how thin and delicate it felt in my hands and knew I'd be more comfortable with a case that stayed on to protect it all the the time. I originally gravitated towards this case because of its eco-friendly attributes and then was totally won over by the hand strap. I also liked how securely the case seemed to hold the kindle as opposed to hinges or corner tabs. I was not thrilled with black being the only choice, but went ahead with it because of all the other postive qualities. In the end I'm very happy with my decision. I've had the case for a few weeks and it feels more plush and cushiony than the hard leather amazon cases. I love how securely it holds my kindle and how well my kindle is protected even while in my purse, work bag, or backpack. The elastic strap holds it closed or open well and I love the feel of the soft interior. The hand strap is a nice convenience and can make holding it more comfortable depending on how I am sitting/laying. Overall I'd say the one downside is the lack of color choice but that is outweighed by all the great features (including the reasonable price) as well as bonus points for being kind to the environment. I would definitely recommend this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Kindle Cover December 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love this case. A great example of how you don't have to sacrifice functionality for aesthetics and vice versa. The kindle is held securely in place while allowing full access to all of the controls. I had been a little dubious about the hand grip at first but that doubt was quickly forgotten. Now I can't imagine using a case without it. It allows for ideal thumb placement on the page controls regardless of if you use your left or right hand.

I've been using the Great Point reading light with this cover. It clips nicely to the front cover without causing any weight or balance issues.

If you are looking for a case for your K3 you won't find better value for your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great product but too bulky, April 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this case because it was so well made and sturdier than the last one I tried, but I just couldn't get over how bulky it was. The case makes the kindle 2x as thick (if not more) and takes up a lot more room in my purse than I would like. I carry my kindle everywhere with me so I want it to have a low profile if possible.

When folded back for reading, that bulkiness was really distracting and unwieldy too. I have smaller hands so maybe it's just me but I ended up returning this item and am back to searching for a cover.

The product itself is very well made and if you don't think the thickness will bother you, I'd totally recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTE PERFECTION January 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
REVIEW UPDATE (9/30/11): I HAVE OWNED TWO OF THESE AND WHILE I STILL STAND BY MY REVIEW BELOW THE ELASTIC BAND WILL STRETCH-OUT AND NOT LAST NEARLY AS LONG AS THE CASE ITSELF. JUST BE AWARE AS THIS MAY SWAY YOU NOT TO INVEST. I WOULD SAY THAT YOU WILL NOTICE THE WEAR ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AND IT WILL PROBABLY BREAK OR BECOME WORTHLESS IN 1-2 YEARS. AGAIN TALKING ABOUT THE ELASTIC STRAP THAT HOLDS THE CASE SHUT.

I just received my Marware Eco Cover today and I could not be happier it is absolutely perfect!

The first thing I noticed when I opened the ecological package, which was about 5% compared to AMAZON'S box and bubble packs, was that is was both absolutely BEAUTIFUL and COMPACT.

BEST FEATURES:

1. The case is small but is highly functional in its purpose to protect the Kindle. I cannot say for certain but I would estimate it increases the size of the Kindle about 20-30% which is quite impressive.

2. Both the Black leather and the Gray suede are gorgeous! The quality far exceeds my expectations and I am actually afraid to touch it without scrubbing my hands first! I also don't want to place it on anything that might have the slightest amount of dust or dirt for fear of that I might mark it up! I am sure this will pass, it is functional not a showpiece and as I start to use it more it will get its marks and I am sure I will appreciate it more for protecting my Kindle which is why I bought it.

I do live in a semi-tropical place though and there is a lot of dust and mold where I live so I am considering a neoprene SLIPCASE for it which may seem like overkill but they are available for under $20.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great functionality but not super plush December 30, 2010
By Eileen
Verified Purchase
I had a Kindle 2 and had an M-Edge leather case for it that I loved except for how it hooked on. (It ended up cracking the fascia of my Kindle). It was soft, beautiful red leather, and it had that yummy leather smell. This case was only available in black, which I wasn't thrilled about, and I imagine it's because of their eco-friendly process that the leather just doesn't feel awesome, nor does it smell like real leather. It almost feels like it's not leather at all.

That said, the design of this case is fantastic. Speaker holes with screens in the back are nifty, but the positively secure nature of the case is what sold me. I can grab the front flap and shake the case as much as I like and that Kindle will not so much as budge. No corner tabs that slip off easily here. The only thing I think could be better would be if it had an actual closure rather than the elastic band that hold the case closed when not in use. (I'm concerned it will lose elasticity over time). The hand sleeve is kind of cool, though I find myself not using it much.

Overall, I would recommend this case as a good way to protect and carry your Kindle. It's very secure while still providing access to every button and the speakers. Now, if only M-Edge would make one like this in their yummy leather in every color of the rainbow? Then we'd have something!

It fits really well and makes the kindle seem more like a book since it opens. I like the protection it gives the kindle also.
Delivery was quick and without hassles.

It fits my kindle keyboard perfectly and it is so much smaller than my last case. It makes charging and turning in on off the screen saver so much easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice case
Works great. Only "con" could be that it doesn't zip up like a notebook case, but works like a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Kindle Cover
It is exactly what I needed. It protects the screen, there is a strap that keeps it open or closed, a band that allows you to hold it with one hand, and looks great for the price.
