It floats fine, and doesn't leak a drop.
Kelli
In case you were wondering, the power button is easily accessible and visible through the waterproof case/cover even AFTER it is sealed up.

I had never dared take a Kindle in the pool but now I will.

I bought this case for my Kindle Keyboard (KK) but find it fits both KK and Kindle Paperwhite (PW). I planned to use it while soaking in my tub and also whilst paddling in my pool. Another use has occurred to me - eating, to prevent a large $ mistake from a knocked over glass. I have not used it yet in the pool, too cold, but gave it a workout in the tub with the PW.

Other cases mentioned problems with the plastic touching the screen and causing errors with the touchscreen. And having to apply some foam dots to correct problem. Check it out, most people wish the dots were unnecessary and/or had been applied by manufacturer.

I opted to avoid the dots and associated disappointment. Good choice.

pro
+fits PW & KK and others of dimensions as noted in description
+touchscreen works perfectly
+crystal clear cover
+combination ziploc and folded over velcro gives me hope my Kindle will survive a drop in pool or tub
+lanyard

negatives
-lanyard is a tad too short to hang around my neck AND read simultaneously
-not sure if I can turn on KK whilst in case (do not care)

I have RA and paddling in the pool is good for my joints. Reading helps pass the time but I have dropped multiple books in the pool and the weight of a book can often cause neck, wrist & finger pain & stiffness. I had never dared take a Kindle in the pool but now I will. Highly recommend.

Notes after end of pool season:
+NO (ZERO) leaks!!! was in pool 5-7 days/week, couple hours per, usually with Kindle in the Beachbuoy (BB). My thumbs have tendonitis but the BB is rocking on strong. My husband snagged it today to put the KK in while in the hot tub. Boohoo, meant I couldn't take out my PW so I'm buying another!

This thing rocks!! I had high hopes of the claimed waterproof capabilities of this Proporta BeachBuoy for my Kindle, but wasn't sure how the touchscreen would fair, to be honest.

I read somewhere (maybe here on Amazon) that some had a terrible time with the touchscreen going bonkers whenever the clear material touched the display surface, but I've not experienced that issue whatsoever. The trick is in keeping enough air inside of the case/cover when you zip the thing closed. That way, there is no need for adding spacers between the Kindle device and the clear material of the cover. When you touch the Kindle screen through the clear material of the cover, air is pushed aside until you pull back your finger (or styllus), at which time the clear material rises off of the Kindle screen. The extra bonus of keeping additional air in the case/cover is that it allows the Kindle to float on the water rather than sinking to, potentially, beyond the 16ft of water depth recommended by Proporta. Be sure to carefully zip BOTH ziplocks completely...and check it, which is immediately apparent when you have the extra air in the cover.

I have my Kindle PW in a custom-fit leather folio (Leather Hard Case Cover for the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite By August Lion® - BLACK) all of the time, the one with the magnetic instant on/off switching ability built-in -- not the Amazon version, however, due to it costing much more. This folio -- when open or closed -- still very easily fits into the Proporta BeachBuoy waterproof case.

I also like the adjustable neck strap. With the leather folio cover folded behind the Kindle, i.e.

Several months ago, I was sitting in the spa reading on my Kindle. It slipped out of the case and I found out that Kindle can't swim. No amount of drying, rice bags, and good wishes helped. My new "Dry Kindle" needed protection, because I like to sit in the spa and read. This one is great - easy to touch the start button on the Kindle Paperwhite. Easy to get in and out of the case. And, most importantly, does not cause glare in bright light or dim.

Got this to go with my new Kindle Paperwhite (love love love it) when I take my nightly bubble bath. I can soak and read at the same time without fear of dropping my Kindle in the water. I have a bath tub shelf and stand it put it in/on, but accidents do happen. Ordered another one from the same company that I sent back. This one is much better. The Kindle Paperwhite Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers with the Amazon leather case Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Onyx Black (does not fit Kindle or Kindle Touch) folded over will fit in snugly. There is no problem using any of the touch links on the Kindle through the case. It is small enough to take in a travel bag, since I take bubble baths in hotels too. I'm sure it would work in a swimming pool or at the beach too. Haven't tried it for that.

I got this waterproof case so I could read my Kindle Paperwhite in the tub and take it to the beach/pool this summer without worry. I tested the case when I received it as recommended in the instructions. Securing the case is very simple. The only issue I've had with it so far is that I have to take my Kindle out of the case I usually use for it (which is pretty thin) in order to slide it in and out easily. I've been afraid to try to force the Kindle into this case with my regular case on too for fear the whole thing will get stuck. So as long as you don't mind that process, I would recommend this case for reading in or near water. The kindle still responds well to my touch when in the waterproof case.
