I have had other kindle cases for older models which were better quality, also there was no clasp to keep the cover closed so if you put it in a bag there is a risk of scratching the screen

This cover is a nice fit and it has a nice feel. My daughter has a case for her paperweight kindle and it has a magnetic clasp which just helps keep it closed when carrying it in a bag. One of these would have meant 5 stars.

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.

After looking around for other cases to see if I could find one cheaper or better I discovered I can not. It fits like a glove securely gripping the kindle. My one 'grouse' is that the quality of the front cover is nowhere near that of the one that fits the paperwhite and I am going to buy a soft neoprene cover to go over it so that it still fits in my pocket but the leather does not get scuffed.

Really nice tidy, neat cover. Delivery arrived promptly and nothing to fault with whole process. This has made my kindle feel more like a book without being bulky

They are great. You can leave them in case to read, unlike some others. Both people I bought these for love them

Expensive but a lovely treat and something I expect to use an awful lot in the future now. Good service although had to return the first one as leather creased badly but no problem getting a replacement. Pleased with the service provided.

I am new to using my kindle. Bought the cover online at the same time as the device. As you might expect, fits like a glove; I was pleased that when I was using it on the beach I noticed that the cover let no sand in contact with the kindle, thereby stopping scratches on it.

However, it has come to lose colour and scuff on the corners quite rapidly which makes it looks quite tired and tatty. Also, I have no experience of using other covers but I think I might look to see if I can find a cover that 'props' itself up on a surface, removing the need to hold it continuously.
