I originally had a kindle keyboard with the lovely quality leather cover in green but having to replace my kindle keyboard with the newer version meant also replacing the cover.
I wish I had paid heed to poor reviews before buying this piece of expensive junk.The only thing it has going for it is the great olive green colour but that is seriously where the quality ends.
It IS leather however the amount of leather is questionable,by what looks like a cut with a razor wafer thin piece of poor quality leather glued over what can only be described as cardboard with a thin plastic inlay in which the kindle fit's into.It is flimsy and flaps around when in use,making a clanging sound as the cardboard bangs off the plastic.Bending it over creases the edges and with no way to keep it closed when not in use the kindle screen was exposed to all and sundry in my bag,keys,pen,phone.I used it for a day and returned it for a refund,had another search through the site and found a great cover that is well padded,secure and most importantly for me actually closes when not in use an all for 1/4 of the price of this cover.
Come on Amazon,we all know you can produce a top quality kindle cover that closes to protect the kindle as you did with the first kindle cover,so why charge such an outrageous price for this piece of rubbish.
I would have given it no stars if it was possible but to carry on with the review a star rating had to be submitted.So read one star given under great duress.
