( BTW, we ordered the tan case, if that matters)
Upon unwrapping the case we noticed a very strong rubber tire smell. I left it out for a few hours with no change.
Despite the smell I put the kindle in the case just to see how well it fit. The elastic bands hold down each corner of the kindle and seemed to work fine. I put the kindle on the table and noticed that the hinge seems too short because when folding it shut the front does not lie flat or close completely unless you pull the attached elastic band that wraps around it in place. Not a huge deal but decided to point it out. My other cases for my other kindles seem to close pretty well even without the band in place.
Overall the construction of the case felt very cheap. It is very thin and the brown part of the case seemed to be lifting or bubbling off. (for lack of a better term.) Not super severe but I wondered if it would get worse in time. For $29.99 I am surprised that it was not better constructed.
Back to the smell. This is the biggest problem I had with this. It was so strong we had to take it off the kindle and put it back into the packaging. After taking it off, my kindle held the same smell for a short bit.
With all that we decided to return this and spend $10 more bucks to get the amazon case for the kindle touch. Wish I would of just gotten that one first. I also like that it does not utilize the four elastic holders to keep the kindle in place. Hopefully it is better constructed.
Lastly, if you can get one without the smell or bubbling of the material then this case would not be so bad but I still think it costs too much for what you get. For slightly more you can get something much better I think.
I spent a little bit of time looking at my options, and finally settled on the Beige Atlas cover, and I'm really happy with what I got.
There are some pretty expensive covers that offer all sorts of perks and features, but I don't need zippers and pockets and all of that. I just want something that'll keep me from getting finger prints all over the kindle, something to keep me from worrying about the lil' one getting his hands on it and messing it up.
This Kindle Cover does that, while adding minimal bulk to your reading device. The substance it adds is quite nice, giving it more of a feel of an actual book than just a slab in your hand. The kindle fits in there safe and snug. In the end, I've gotten exactly what I wanted, and what I needed, and I didn't have to pay a whole lot for it.
I only have two slight criticisms. First, this notion of a hand-strap is absurd. Why anybody would want to strap a book to their hand is pretty darn silly. There are more sensible ways to read with one hand. Though, if I use the strap, it will probably be used to hold a piece of paper, a note or something. The second and more legitimate issue, the cover obscures some access to the power button. For the past three months I've been a "slide-your-finger-over-the-button-to-turn-it-on" kind of guy. Alas, these days are at an end. I'll now have to poke at it straight on. It will take some getting use to, but it really isn't anything to get all uppity over. I consider it a small price to pay for the comfort and safety the cover provides.
