Got my black MarBlue Atlas Kindle case. It has an excellent leather appearance. Not understanding of those that need to snipe about non-leather things especially if it looks good. (Those that have money to burn apparently) The double stitched border looks professional and high quality. When reading the review on this product to decide on blowing $40 or $25 I concentrated on the middle of the road reviews on the magnetic Amazon model. I want to know the absolute worst thing I should be aware of and its repetition is the only thing that I can depend on for any possible truth from my consumer perspective. The majority of the 5 star people I had to assume would be predisposed to give it a great review to justify their expenditure. In the mediocre reviews I always look for consistency of the mediocre complaint. If there is no consistency, there is a good chance that simply kavetching of picky perfectionists are more the order of the day and the item is actually a top notch purchase.

The Amazon Cover model consisted of three main complaints. Very consistent! One, it was pretty expensive for the simply acceptable but definitely adequate quality. Two, the magnetic closure was many times not 100%. It didn't close completely all the time, or it did not turn off the unit as designed. Third, it seemed heavy. There were consistent variations of these themes.

The MarBlue on the other hand has awesome reviews, even the mediocre reviews did not have the repetitive problem that makes my red flags go up. The hand hold was a universal plus. Now that I have it, I agree, the hand hold strap is fantastic and brings an entirely new dimension of reading with this unit for in bed nightime use. The Amazon unit also had its weight highlighted several times while MarBlue did not.

I am pleased with this case for my Kindle. The reader fits securely in its retaining straps and the case is held shut by an elastic band. I do wonder, though, how long the elastic will hold up under constant use; I will update this review when and if the strap gives out. The case also has an interesting elasticized sleeve that allows you to fold the cover of the case back and slide your hand into the sleeve for secure handling. The sleeve is somewhat awkward for me to use, but it has been only a few days that I have been using it and it provides piece of mind if you are reading on the train or subway and are prone to doze while reading. I have also noticed that the sleeve and fabric cover of the case imparts an unpleasant odor to the hand when it is inserted into the sleeve for any period of time. I hope that it will pass in time, as it is quite noticeable. I had been using a sleeve/pouch to transport my Kindle while commuting or traveling, and I find this case to be more convenient to use in that you do not have to find a place to stow your pouch while reading. That being noted, I think that the padding on my present pouch would provide more protection to the Kindle if dropped while stored. I would rate this case a 7 out of 10.

Update: January 12, 2014 - some time has now passed and I am more happy with this Kindle case! The scent about which I complained has largely gone and I am more comfortable using (or not using) the strap for my hand. I am still somewhat skeptical about the long-term survivability of the elastic strap on the outside of the case.

Update: June 11, 2014 - This product has really grown on me. The closing strap is still intact, and the case has protected my Kindle against the usual bumps of commuting quite well. The internal hand strap is still a bit too snug for my larger hands and I seldom use it. I have upgraded my rating to four stars - I like this product a lot.

When I bought the original Paperwhite in the fall of 2012, I also bought the Amazon leather cover, and I've been very pleased with it, so much so that I'm using the same cover for the new 2013 Paperwhite. It looks good, it holds the Paperwhite very securely, and it has a little magnet that serves double duty - keeping the cover securely closed and activating the AutoWake feature of the Paperwhite.

The Marblue Atlas cover appears to be well made and durable enough to last for years of service. The faux leather looks good, and the stitching is uniform and tight. It doesn't have a magnetic lock like the Amazon cover has, but the elastic bungee will keep the cover securely closed when you're not reading. And the wide hand strap is a nice touch for hand-holding the Kindle.

But I have two concerns about this case:
1. The Kindle is secured in the case with four elastic straps. That's okay, but straps can break, although these seem tough enough. However, I much prefer a more secure plastic snap-in shell like the Amazon case has.
2. A bigger concern is the lack of a magnet to activate the newer Kindles' AutoWake feature. AutoWake is a great feature that lets you avoid fumbling for the on/off switch every time you use the Kindle.

Overall, the Marblue Atlas is a nice case. It doesn't have all the features of the Amazon case, but it's less expensive. If the lower cost is worth the tradeoff in features - notably AutoWake - the Marblue Atlas is definitely worth a look.

This is a review of both the black and blue MarBlue Atlas Kindle Cases. These are decent cases and have some good things going for them. I wouldn't say they're great cases but they do the job with, what I consider, only a few flaws.

The system for attaching your Kindle to the cover are four very strong and quite tight rubber reinforced elastic cords. I've had several Kindles and numerous cases over the years and as far as four corner case mounts this is the most secure of that style I've ever seen. I had my PaperWhite mounted in this case and shook it violently, over a pillow and ready to catch it should anything happen, and not only did it stay in place it didn't move a fraction of an inch. I was very impressed with that function of the case.

The case exterior is a synthetic leather that truly looks and feels like leather. It is well made, and fairly handsome. Unlike many synthetic products this had no harsh chemical smell. The blue cover looks a little less like leather than the black but it is a very nice shade of blue.

The interior is an attractive, and soft, dark grey microfiber that's quite pleasing to the touch.

The case is held closed or open with a half inch wide cloth elastic that is well attached to the case. This holds the case closed quite well. The hinge area of the case is a bit too large/tall/wide making the case when folded back a little ungainly and if not strapped down it wanted to flop closed.

Inside the case is a nearly three inch wide strap made of the same soft, grey microfiber attached with elastics at both the top and bottom. This comes into use when the case is open you can put your hand or fingers under this strap to read one handed.
