One of the complaints about the Marware Jurni Kindle cases is that they don't lie flat. The solution appears to be running the zipper partially back once you open the case. The illustration in the Amazon listing even shows this.

However, when you look at other Marware products and read the reviews, you might come to the conclusion that the company doesn't always "get it". The reverse zipper trick is a bit of a "The dog ate my homework" excuse. If Marware had intended the case to work this way, they would have used the kind of zipper pulls that can be moved from one side of the slider to the other. My guess is that they designed it, has the cases made overseas, and when they got their hands on the production models, got that sinking feeling that comes with realizing you messed up.

You CAN make this case work properly and fold open without a lot of effort. Just take a sharp knife or good embroidery scissors and cut away the fake leather hinge piece. Work carefully on the threads that stitch the hinge to the cover and pull the piece away a little at a time. You'll be rid of it in a few minutes. It does leave some unfinished looking areas on the case, but it FUNCTIONS like it was supposed to, and the zippered pocket on the outside is actually usable.

The Jurni is just another Marware design with problems. In this case, the back "hinge" piece is made of materials that are too stiff, and want to fight back at you. Marware may have forgotten (or may have never known) that for many of the activities undertaken by Kindle users, the ability of the Kindle to lie flat is important -- otherwise you might as well be reading a paper book.

I would be happy to trade my (now fixed) Kindle Fire Jurni with a truly functional production model, should Marware ever fess up and get this thing fixed.

I was looking for something that was durable and adequately protected my Kindle, and this works beautifully! As another reviewer pointed out, the cover doesn't stay open well, but if you bend it back and slightly zip the cover closed, the cover will stay open.
It's about 1 in. thick, but it's still small enough to fit in my purse. I'm very happy with this purchase!

EDIT: Since I've been using this with my new Kindle Touch, I've noticed that the cover is more flexible now and doesn't require me zipping it to stay open! Also, the side pocket (as other have pointed out) is pretty useless. I tried to put the power cord in there...no go. I can see how CC would fit, but honestly I would be scared I couldn't get them back out! I still give it 5 stars because it fits my Kindle Touch so well. I can turn it on and charge it without having to remove it from the cover.

I read the reviews for this product, and almost didn't buy it, but I'm glad I did. I carry my Kindle in my bag to school, and wanted something that would potect it from getting smashed or spilled on. The other covers, with their open sides, were not what I really wanted.

No, the pocket is not really big enough to carry much, but that's why I have a purse and a bag. I did not try to fold back the cover and zip it, as some have done, but I really don't intend to use the hand pocket. I am already capable of holding my Kindle, I just wanted something to protect it. The Kindle fits snugly in the inside, not too loose, not too tight. I used the special offer from my Kindle and got this cover for half price, which makes it an even better deal. I am extremely pleased!

When I looked at the picture, the product looked bulky. I ultimately decided a little bulk was worth the added protection. I was happily surprised when I opened the package, and the cover was slim and sleek. Before I purchased this, I was carrying around my Kindle in the original packaging. This case is an improvement on SOOO many levels!

After looking at many cases online, I chose this one for a few good reasons. I wanted a zipper, which it has. The zipper works very smoothly and you can fold open and back zip the case to hold your Kindle using the elastic strap. I wish the zipper tab would flip to make it easier, but it still does back zip ok. When folded and back zipped flat, it is more comfortable to hold than a regular paperback. By inserting four fingers in the strap it leaves your thumb free to tap and change the page. It could be held in left or right hand. I think it is going to be very comfortable to use when my Kindle arrives. The zipper pouch on the front is spacious, though as someone else reviewed, very flat. It will easily hold some cash, cards, and a key. Thats all I wanted. It seems sturdy and well made. I think it will hold up well.

I was extremely unhappy when two of the four elastic straps designed to hold the kindle touch inside the cover broke only six weeks after I began using it. I tried to sew the straps back in place, but the frayed elastic straps made that very difficult, if not impossible. This was my first experience with a Marware product and will likely be my last. The cover seemed fine when I received it, but the quality turned out to be disappointingly poor. I was not hard on the product. In fact, I thought I was careful with it. Also, I had to wonder why a zippered pocket on the front of the cover was even included, because there was no room to put anything thicker than a single sheet of paper in it. I paid $29.99 for the kindle cover, and I feel cheated.

This looks like it could have been a good functioning product...however it SMELLS terrible! I tried airing it out, leaving it in the garage...nothing helped. The plastic smell is so strong there is no way I can carry or read my Kindle from it. Returned the item...Extrememly disappointed in the product

This cover stunk like noxious fumes and took over a week to air out. A co-worker ended up paying me for it to use with her Kindle Touch--it took about 2 weeks to off-gas. I bought a nice M-Edge and a light to go with it at a brick and mortar retailer. I expressed to one of the sales people that I had purchased one online that had a horrible smell and they had said they had a few people come in and say the same thing.

Great on kindle paper white. Has a hand strap, pockets and zips closed. The case is hard for great production.

At first I thought this was a great case, it protects the Kindle very well (better than some others that have open sides). However I recently realized that keeping my Kindle in this case has stained the back of my Kindle! The back of my Kindle now is now a pinkish/brown color everywhere where the back touched the case. This stain is permanent and I have not found any way to get it off. The back of my Kindle is now permanently discolored. I know some people might not care about this, but others may - so if you care about how your Kindle looks, I would suggest buying another case!

I've had this for a month now with my Kindle no-keyboard special offers. The people who complain about the stiff leather hinge haven't given it enough time! Since it is leather, it softens up after only a few days of bending it backwards and now does it easily. I used to use the backwards zip for just the bottom section to hold it flat but don't need to do it now at all because the hinge is now quite soft. I can fit a credit card and some bills into the pocket so it's very handy to take it to lunch without a purse. The Kindle fits snuggly into the case and together weigh about as much as a 300 page paperback book. I like to hold it with my index finger in the hand-slot and my thumb along the bottom edge, just like you hold a book when reading. Very comfortable to hold up so my neck doesn't get tired looking down.

I did try using the kindle without this cover while I waited for it to arrive and found that it was too thin and slippery to hold comfortably without hitting the page turn keys all the time. This case solves those problems and has a nice suade feel to the inside.

Update: I purchased another Kindle for my daughter and gave her my old one with this case. For my second Kindle, I bought a flip cover because I found I wasn't using the zipper much. The strap on the Jurni case also got stretched out after a bit. I liked the flip cover better because it was thinner and allows me to prop up the Kindle when reading in bed. Marware Eco-Flip Leather Kindle Flip Case, Black (Fits Kindle Keyboard)
