4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Stars for Cool Factor, 3.5 Stars for Protection February 7, 2013
Color Name:Summer of Love|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm a huge Kindle Fan. Last year, I became instantly cool in the eyes of my sixteen-year-old niece, when I got the BUILT Summer of Love Indigo case for my 7" Kindle Fire. Normally, I'm not all matchy-matchy, but I couldn't help myself: when I purchased my Kindle Fire HD Tablet, I immediately ordered the BUILT Summer of Love Indigo Sleeve to go with it.

NOTE: This product is a *SLEEVE* and not a case, it so doesn't close at the top.

PROS:
1) The Cool Factor. Older teens and college students will love it. (My niece squealed over it, and then she tried to liberate it from my possession. Grin.)
2) Soft indigo fake fur lining to protect your tablet from scratches, while stowed inside the sleeve.
3) It's washable.
4) It fits over my Kindle Fire HD Tablet's slim-fit hard case.
5) Because this sleeve is soft and slim, it's excellent for toting one's Kindle Fire HD Tablet in a carry-on. (It's also easy to slip one's tablet out on a moment's notice -- say at airport security check points.)
6) It's neat and professional enough to take to business meetings.

CONS:
1) It doesn't protect my Kindle Fire HD Tablet from a fall as well as a hard case would.
2) A "naked" Kindle easily slips out of this sleeve. If you want/need added protection, use this sleeve with a slim-fit hard case. As I don't have the best grasp of left and right, let alone open-end and closed-end, I use this sleeve only when my Kindle HD Tablet is "cased."
3)I don't recommend *any* sleeve be used in lieu of a hard case.

BUILT makes an excellent, well-made product. I *love* my Summer of Love Sleeve. I chose it, because it does exactly what a sleeve is supposed to do -- and it makes me happy.

Oh, and the Cool Factor doesn't hurt. Grin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stowage sleeve ~ March 27, 2013
Color Name:Summer of Love|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great for tossing the Kindle into your backpack, purse, or computer case. Protects the device very well. The inside is soft and padded and doesn't scratch the device or any screen protector you might have on the device.

It fits the Kindle 8.9 but I also feel it would fit other devices of similar (or at least smaller) sizes.

And it isn't too touch to charge the device while it's in the case, just flip it around and stick it out a bit.

But I feel the design of this case is meant for transporting from home to office or coffee shop, or just wherever. It's not a permanent holder such as the actual BUILT cases with stands and such.

If you don't like the cases with the flip cover and enjoy just using the device without any cases, this is ideal for protection on the go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice December 31, 2012
Color Name:Mini Dot|Verified Purchase
Functions as advertised and protects the Fire 8.9. My only "complaint" would be that they don't come in more "manly" colors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great BUILT quality! March 27, 2013
Color Name:Summer of Love|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
BUILT products are known for being high quality and this neoprene Kindle sleeve is no exception. This case fits my device like a glove yet isn't difficult to remove, thanks to the contoured shape and textured grip towards the bottom of both the front and back of the sleeve.

The Summer of Love print on the exterior is adorable. The interior is lined with a blue fuzzy lining which is reminiscent of faux fur. With this soft, plush lining I don't need to worry about scratches occurring from sliding the device in and out of the case.

Like other BUILT products I've owned, this one is made with a decent thickness to it so I feel confident that my Kindle is protected. This case is exactly what I've come to expect from the BUILT brand. Excellent all around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very tight fit May 14, 2013
Color Name:Lush Flower|Verified Purchase
If you have a flip case so you can prop the kindle up and you don't want to take that off the kindle every time,it is a very tight fit. Just 3 cm more on the sides and it would be perfect.If you have any issues with your hands, forgeddaboutit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish it had a zipper closure April 6, 2013
Color Name:Summer of Love|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to say I LOVE the inside lining of this case. It has to be the softest lining in a tablet case I've ever felt. It feels like short silky fake fur. I was quite surprised when I stuck my hand in side to see if it was smooth enough to trust rubbing the screen of my tablets against it. I was more than pleased with the softness, and trust that it won't be scratching up my screen.

The neoprene exterior provides a little cushion for protection, which works for keeping tablets inside this when they are at home. When traveling with your devices in a bag, you may want to consider a case/sleeve with a firmer exterior to help prevent damage from other items in your bag banging up against it. The colors of the case are bright and bold, and my daughter really likes this case design of the "Summer of Love" indigo, being covered in hearts and peace signs.

The only thing I would change about this case is the addition of a snap or zipper to the case's opening/closure, to help keep the tablet inside. A zipper would really be nice, since that in addition to the neoprene fabric it's designed with, would make the whole case quite water resistant to accidental spills. Other than the addition of a type of closure, it's a cute case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed for everyday protection April 5, 2013
Color Name:Mini Dot|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is one of six BUILT products I own so by now I'm well aware of the quality and style they put into their products and this case is no exception.

What's great about this case:

*It's lightweight it won't weigh your kindle or your bag down

*It has a very plush interior that protects your screen and kindle body from scratches

*It holds your kindle securely so it doesn't fall out

*You can machine wash it so if it gets dirty you can keep it looking like new - This has been one of my favorite features with my various BUILT products as most of the other cases I have seen on the market can not be washed and can start looking dingy over time if you use them a lot

*It's durable - I've had quite a few BUILT products, some for years and the material and stitching holds up really well. This isn't a cheap product that you buy this year and will have to replace a year or two down the road.

What I'm not a fan of:

*The absence of a zipper - they claim it makes taking the product in and out easier (and I guess it does save a little time) but it also makes it easier for dust to get inside. Personally I was a bit surprised it didn't have a zipper as this has been a standard feature on almost every BUILT product I've bought to date

Overall, I think this is a great product and one that will protect your kindle in everyday use.
