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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed June 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I just recently got a Kindle Keyboard and wanted a protective case. After much research and reading hundreds of reviews, I decided on this one. I have a Marware case for my Kindle Fire (Kindle Fire Lightweight MicroShell Folio Cover by Marware, Graphite)that I absolutely LOVE for its durability, ease of use, the elastic strap, and very low profile. After reading the reviews of this case, I was hopeful for a similar product.

This case is well-constructed in that it seems durable, the materials are quality, and it would definitely protect the Kindle. However, I have a few complaints. The inner part that holds the Kindle makes it difficult to fully access the keyboard, especially the buttons on the edge, unless you use a stylus of some sort. My fingers are long and narrow, and I found it very difficult to use the arrow pad and hit some of the buttons. The case is much bulkier than I expected, too. While it may be relatively trim - it's definitely smaller than my husband's case with the built-in light - it still feels bulky to me. The strap on the back is good in concept, but I could barely get my hand in there, and not only was it uncomfortable for me due to the tight fit, but I had to strain to push the page turn buttons. The biggest issue is that when you flip the front flap to the back, the edge of the flap slides past the edge of the Kindle, making it not only uncomfortable to hold in the right hand but really hard to hit the page turn buttons on the side. If you try to push it back so the right edge is even with the flap, there is a huge bulge on the left side, making the whole thing off-balance and uncomfortable to hold in the left hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arrived in August 17, 2011
Being that I love color and wanted the teal Leather Folio VERY BADLY, I went to Marware's website hoping to order it from there being that Amazon was totally out of this particular product! Boy, am I glad I did!!! For $34.99 I got a "two-fer" that's two for the price of one. All I had to do was buy a black one and I could get one extra Folio in any color!!!! So, of course I went for the teal! My order is on the way and I am hoping to receive it by Saturday, August 20th. Once it arrives and I am able to use it with my 3rd Generation Kindle I will certainly come back and edit my review for functionality of the product with the Kindle. Until then, I gave this four stars for the pricing deal (at Marware's website) happy reading to all!!! :)
Update: I received my Kindle folio and I like it! As the picture shows it holds the Kindle securely. I think that the strap to hold the Kindle while reading is nice and helps me hold my Kindle in the best position to hit the "next page" or "back" button. They are not super bulky and can fit nicely in a medium-size purse. I feel that this will protect my Kindle and help me locate it (due to the color) if I ever forget where in the house I last set it down. Both my folios arrived without any weird smells, as one reviewer wrote. I am pleased with my purchase and thankful that my wait time was only two whole days. I recommend this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit! November 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
The cover is well made, color true (teal).
Rather stiff, but I expect that will resolve itself with use.
Problem: you can't turn the Kindle 3G On/Off when this cover is used!
The cover covers the switch. :(

3.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out case - on the outside June 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
This case is well designed - on the outside. I purchased it for $9.99 as a lightning deal.

Pros
- Design (the hand slip on the front cover allows you to read this one handed for hours without fatigue. Additionally, the elastic strap feels sturdy and unlikely to stretch significantly over time. There is also a compartment for credit cards and such on the inside. Given this compartment seems very small and wouldn't hold much.)
- Leather (this case is easy to clean and the leather feels smooth.)

Cons
- Color (although described as teal, this case is really more of a turquiose. The plus on this is that it matches almost perfectly with theVerso Clip-On Reading Light for Kindle (Turquoise). The color is still beautiful, just not as light as expected based on the picture.)
- Inside (the material on the inside leaves something wanting. It feels like it could become dirty easily and doesn't cover much of the Kindle. Specifically, there is no bar of fabric above the keyboard and below the screen to secure the Kindle Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display - includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers in place. The Kindle seems secure, but I have my fears about it dropping out of the case just based on the look of the inside.

Overall, this case is okay. Although some of it's features are spectacular, it falls short in several ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secure fit August 3, 2011
By Dede K
Verified Purchase
I had the first generation Kindle and cover. This cover is a vast improvement. The reader slides into a soft leather slot, with perfect spaces cut for buttons and ports. There is a flap that folds to protect the top edge and makes the reader fit very securely. I also appreciate the choice of colors. I chose teal and it is easy to spot in a large bag, and distictive enough not to accidentally leave behind. I was amused by the description of a storage pocket. It is very tight and would not hold much more than a business card. I would recommend this product.

Kindle is an investment. This helps protect it. It does not look or feel cheap and you do not have to remove it to charge the Kindle.
