I've been umming and ahhing abour getting a case for my Kindle for a while. I don't really like the book-type cases, so wanted something more like a slip case. I have a Macbook, and for that I have a really nice neoprene case (InCase) which I'm very happy with, so wanted something similar for my Kindle. But, looking at the cases on offer, HOW MUCH?!?! They were/are all pretty much the same price as the case for my Macbook, which is a fair bit bigger!
Liked the look of the belkin case, but that looks like vapourware (as of writing, is still pre-order) and was borderline sensible at £15. I really wanted the WrappersUK linen case, but over £20? You're having a giraffe. So didn't bother with that. There were a few other cases that looked ok for a more reasonable price, but reviews seemed to suggest they were too big for the Kindle so it'd slide around inside a bit too much. Then I spotted this one, and at £7 with one good review, I thought I'm willing to take a chance on it.
-It fits well. The Kindle pops in easily, but is sufficiently snug. The flap ensures it won't slip out.
-It's well made. The neoprene is thin enough to be light so the case+Kindle is still small, but it's thick enough that I reckon the Kindle would survive a drop inside this case.
-It isn't lined. Something like a micro-fibre lining would be nice, or fleecy stuff like my InCase case.
-Smells a bit like my wetsuit (slightly rubbery). But then again, it's made of wetsuit-type material. Not really bad, but it is noticeable.
Overall, I'm very happy with this case at the price it's at. The other cases are ridiculously expensive for a £109 item (over 20% of the price of the item for a case??? Or over 50% for the one with the light???). This one is a nice balance of price and quality, so I would recommend it.
