Top Customer Reviews
*Fits very snugly within the case and covers no buttons.
*Very hard exterior protects the Kindle extremely well.
*Adds very little extra bulk to the Kindle.
*Being able to completely flip around the front of the case to read like a book is a great feature.
*"Easel" flap that is provided is pretty much useless, although that is not why I bought this item in the first place.
*Zipper is a teensy bit difficult around the corners, but this is minor in the grand scheme of things.
Bottom Line: BUY THIS CASE if you want great protection in a sleek lightweight case!
Luckily it was in this case.
The case had a few scratches and tooth marks but my Kindle
survived like new.
Am ordering a new one.
Disclamer....Don't try this with a Pitt Bull ect. My dog is a Terrier....
I took out the Velcro stand thing which doesn't work great and just adds bulk inside the case. I don't see much of a use for the mesh pocket inside. There isn't enough space to store much inside there and it would just make it more likely to break the Kindle. The zipper pull is exceptionally heavy and noisy. I cut it off and replaced it with a loop of cord instead. Much less annoying. It's held up pretty well, even at the beach.
(Note that when I bought this it was quite a bit cheaper than it shows now.)
1. rubber case: can accumulate static electricity and can kill a Kindle
2. hard case: stays on the Kindle like the rubber fit case, but it can mark it as it shakes
3. neoprene sleeves: almost OK, some of them reported smelling badly (my wetsuits have that very strong rubber smell, neoprene), and it could not protect the Kindle from a sharper object
I think this hard cover is the best solution! It works as I expected. I don't use any other protection besides that.
I like to hold my Kindle in my hands. I've had several book cover versions and even one silicon sleeve, but they always seem to add bulk or weight I don't want. So I finally settled on a fabulous skin from DecalGal (great vendor, by the way) but still wanted something to carry my Kindle in and offer a little more protection.
This is a great option. I'm not gonna bore you with descriptions that other reviewers have done better. But I can say that so far the straps have been fine and hold my Kindle securely while allowing me a quick opportunity to take it in and out whenever I want to. No big deal.
It is fairly strong but I would not recommend driving over it, or standing on top of it - it's not indestructible. Just could good, reasonable protection for your Keyboard.
