3.0 out of 5 stars It's Just "Okay", November 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marware C.E.O. Hybrid for Kindle Fire, Black (will not fit HD or HDX models) (Accessory)
First, the good: the holder is functional and protects the Fire and appears to hold it firmly - that's what you want, after all, because you will drop it on occasion. They have some decent padding on this thing.

Now, for the rest of the story....this cover costs $45, and seeing the pricing on a regular Kindle leather cover I was expecting a little bit more quality. The leather looks a little like fake leather, or if it is real leather it must be a pretty inferior grade. The stand feature slipped when I tried it on my desk.

Overall, this is just "okay." As Best Buy is carrying the Fire and its covers starting today, I think I am going to head over there tonight and check the covers out and see if there is something better and possibly return this one.

Unfortunate misleading quality.
I am returning this very flimsy fake feeling plastic leather. The case folds in the center of the unit. I feel these are meant to be solid not flimsily protecting it.
My kindle touch-pad lighted leather cover is awesome. Quality pebble leather like a good hand bag or wallet. Approx. same price. This seems to have lame holders for unit as well "if" it is real leather will stretch and it will fall out. So it barely seems protected as is.
I decided on a cover that is not leather but has really awesome features and can stand and view landscape and portrait. It has a nice interior like the kindle keyboard, it just is not leather but still I feel it is well protected and has such better grips to hold the unit. It is called the Professor style, the company name is TimBuk2, same price. I give malware one i am returning a 2.
