Product Description

The super clean, easy to use Defender Series Kindle Fire HD 7" case protects like nothing else. Brilliant engineering and precision design come together to create a Kindle Fire HD 7" case that is highly attractive, functional and reliably protective. The two pieces of the polycarbonate inner shell firmly snap together for solid impact resistance. The durable outer silicone layer snugly wraps around the polycarbonate and provides impact absorption. The built-in screen protector for the Kindle Fire HD 7" keeps the screen clear of scratches while smudges and fingerprints easily clean off this surface. The versatile shield stand provides additional protection for the touchscreen and a variety of options for hands-free use. Covered in rugged protection from this innovative Kindle Fire HD 7" case, this multi-function device can go anywhere you do without worrying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Protection! December 27, 2012
By Linda S

I received my Kindle Fire HD 7” Otterbox today and it fits like a glove! Very sturdy! I feel very comfortable now about popping the Kindle into my purse or letting the grandchildren having a go at it. Glad I didn’t pay attention the negative reviews by people who didn’t know what they were talking about. Note: Otterbox needs to post the instructions for installing the case on the Kindle Fire HD. The instructions included in the box were for a phone cover and it did take a few minutes to figure it out the Kindle case.

5.0 out of 5 stars great product! January 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
i have read some reviews where people are concerned about this product not being an authentic otterbox item. i can tell you it is in fact the real deal. i purchased 2 kindle fire 7" hds for my 2 children as xmas presents,while my children happen to be careful with thier toys i figured it cant hurt to have some extra protection. so i ordered them at the same time as the kindles knowing i more than likely wouldnt have bought them after they have been played with. so heres the break down: great product,offical otterbox item not a knock off,fits like a glove,has a great protective screen saver built in that cleans easily,all buttons and port are usable,no problems with speakers being covered,and as i have witnessed at least once it can take a drop. abit expensive but i think worth the investment if u are like me and want things to stay nice and working as long as possible. on a side note i also bought the kindle wall chargers and the square trade protection plans (for the kindles
)because they will mainly be used by my kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fourth time's a charm... I've been struggling to find the perfect Kindle cover. My criteria are protection, aesthetics, bulk and usability. OttorBox meets or exceeds most of them. It certainly protects well, as do all their products, though it does take a bit to figure out how to take it apart the first time you use it. It's blocky, but not awful to look at, though with the detachable stand it gets awful thick. I kept that for watching movies and whatnot, but doubt I'll use it much. Certainly I won't leave it attached all the time. Useability-wise, the speakers are uncovered and all the buttons and ports are readily accessible. The built in cover lets plenty of light through. The only common feature not found with other covers is the auto sleep/wake function, but I really don't mind pushing the on/off button instead. Of the four covers I've tried (Verso "Prologue" Standing Cover for Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Antique Tan (will only fit Kindle Fire HD 8.9"), Marware MicroShell Folio Lightweight Standing Case for Kindle Fire HD 7", Black (only fits Kindle Fire HD 7"), Acase Kindle Fire HD Case - New Kindle Fire HD 7 Inch Tablet Cover / Kindle Fire HD 7" Tablet Premium PU Leather Case with Flip Stand (BLACK) and OttorBox), this one's my favorite. Not perfect, but definitely good enough to keep. Now if they'd only make one for the Kindle Paperwhite 3G too...

5.0 out of 5 stars Received just in time for Christmas December 22, 2012
By Trish

I'm so happy to receive the Otterbox case today. It was a must have before my 6 year old could play with her Kindle Fire HD 7, so Christmas will be amazing for her after all. There are no other child friendly options out there; believe me, I searched the web for two days. Actually, it delayed my decision to purchase the Kindle Fire HD 7. Thank you Amazon for being the first to stock this item.

5.0 out of 5 stars relieved April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
My mother in law got my children a kindle fire to share. I was worried it would be broken quickly by the toddler that has to do EVERYTHING his brothers do, but doesn't yet understand 'fragile'! I purchased the otterbox even though I felt it was a little expensive compared to other covers, but after receiving it and putting it on I am very relieved I went for it! This thing is like a tank, now I can let the kids take it places I never would without this intense of a cover, we just toss it in the diaper bag and go! The cover does not limit screen sesitivity or any other function. In fact, I think it makes it more user friendly for both the kids and I! Before the cover was on we had a little difficulty finding the buttons on the side because they were flush and smooth and blended in, but with the otter box on the buttons are slightly raised, but not over sensitive which I feel made an improvement! Overall we are very happy with the otterbox

4.0 out of 5 stars OtterBox for Kindle Fire HD 7" January 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
Just got it. Appears durable, rugged. You have two sturdy positions to prop and display your protected Kindle.

Only literature was a generic pamphlet advertising OtterBox the company. Pamphlet contained poor (airplane crash instruction quality) pictorial instructions on how to open the case and install the device.

It is simple, but requires some gentle force; remove the hard plastic cover, remove the rubber covering by opening the port covers and carefully pry the rubber cover off, pry the clam-shell apart (use the arrows to know where to apply pressure.

When you install the Kindle, make sure you have cleaned the screen and the inside surface of the OtterBox screen (you don't want to have to reopen this, lol).

Consider asking OtterBox to add more explanation or better pictures to the instructions.
