The other thing I'm not loving about this case is it's size. One of the benefits of switching to the new Kindle (for me) was to get a smaller, lighter device. After I inserted the newest Kindle into this Cole Haan case, and placed it beside my second generation Kindle in its JAVOedge case, they appear to be the exact same size in dimension and weight.Read more ›
As far as appearance goes, this cover is very attractive. The color is rich, the material is high-quality, and overall it looks fairly expensive. I have received many compliments on it within the last week.
The problem is that as soon as I removed the cover from the box, I noticed that a piece of leather on the spine was snagged and starting to shred. This obviously bothered me since I just spent $100+ for an item that I assumed would be high quality. The problem with the woven leather is that if you catch it on something and tear it, the whole area could potentially start to unravel.
My other issue with this cover is that it isn't super easy to fold back. It's definitely stiff and fights back a bit, and the woven leather on the spine kind of "bubbles" out when in the folded position. This makes me nervous, so I haven't been folding it back as much as I would typically.
Although I really do love how this cover looks, I don't think I can justify spending the money on something that isn't perfect. This cover would be excellent for someone who doesn't want to fold it back while reading, and who is very careful not to snag it on anything.
When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at (a) how much smaller it was than the last version of this cover, (b) how well made it was and (c)the secure way in which it fit with the new Kindle (the last version of this cover had elastic bands at the corners). Unfortunately, I noticed that my new Kindle frequently spontaneously rebooted on its own. I assumed the problem was with the Kindle itself but when I called Amazon Kindle support they informed me that the problem was in fact with the Cole Haan cover.
Sure enough, I removed the Kindle from its cover a week ago and it hasn't spontaneously rebooted since! This, compared to every time I picked it up before (4-10 times a day) it was in reboot mode, which made for frequent interruptions when I was reading the paper or a magazine or a book.
I'm saddened that I'll have to return this cover because I like the look so much. After all, this is the second version of this thing that I've purchased! But it's nonsensical to keep this cover given the stress is causes to the Kindle itself. I'm a bit puzzled that Amazon continues to sell this item given that they are aware of the problem.
