Like other reviewers I was put off the leather Kindle cover by its expense and bulk - I ended up creating my own cover from the sleeves of an old velvet top. When I saw this I ordered right away. Free delivery, lightning quick, excellent. The product isn't so great however - a sloppy fit (maybe it's the colour? reviews for the black one speak of a snug fit) and poor finishing spoil it. On the other hand, it's cheap and it does the job of protecting my Kindle in my handbag. Though I may have to stitch on a button or Velcro to keep the flap down.
