Amazon's Leather Cover for Your Kindle Paperwhite

Better Together

Our genuine leather cover was engineered to be the lightest and thinnest protective cover for your Kindle Paperwhite. A fusion of soft, premium textured leather and an innovative, custom-fitted interior secures Kindle Paperwhite without any hinges or straps.

The cover automatically puts your Kindle Paperwhite to sleep when it is closed and wakes your device upon opening making it so easy to jump back into your latest book.

Lose Yourself in Your Reading

Our top design objective is to make Kindle devices and accessories disappear - just like a physical book - so you can get lost in your reading.

We achieved this with a custom-fitted cover that does not require straps over the front of the device, enabling the cover to wake your Kindle Paperwhite or put it to sleep by opening and closing it, and a subtle, woven nylon interior perfectly colored to disappear along with the device. Additionally, the cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.

On the Go

Thin, lightweight, and hard-wearing, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle Paperwhite wherever you go. When you have finished enjoying your content, simply close the cover to put your Kindle Paperwhite to sleep and you are good to go. The integrated magnetic closure will ensure your cover stays shut while in a backpack, handbag, or briefcase.

Colour Name:Royal Purple|Verified Purchase
This cover provides neat, close-fitting protection for your Kindle. The Kindle slots into a moulded plastic tray at the back of the case, with nothing intruding onto the device itself. A section at the bottom of the Kindle is left exposed to allow permanent access to the micro USB port. The front cover is thin and lacks additional padding, but 12 months of carrying a baby Kindle around in a case with a similar-style cover has resulted in no harm, so I'm reasonably confident in the protection this will provide.

The leather is textured and has been applied as a surface covering to both the front section of the cover and the plastic tray at the rear. The leather doesn't have the lovely, soft tactile sensation that went with Amazon's Kindle Keyboard covers but doesn't seem to mark as easily as the Amazon leather covers for the baby Kindle/Kindle Touch models (a fingernail is enough to leave a permanent scrape on those). The purple colourway I ordered is disappointing - much darker than product photos suggest.

The cover bends back easily enough for one handed reading, but the 'spine' section on the latest version of the Amazon brand cover does seem to have been reinforced, so that it doesn't flop awkwardly backwards if you prefer to hold the cover two-handed. The microfibre lining of the interior is very shallow-piled and resembles black denim.

The biggest problem I had with the last generation of Amazon cases - the lack of closing mechanism - has been addressed here, courtesy of a lightweight magnet. This works simply, engaging when you shut the cover, and requires no extra fiddling.

The cover isn't cheap, but is comparable in price to cases currently offered by Verso and Marware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty title about book covers and judging 15 Oct. 2013
Colour Name:Onyx Black|Verified Purchase
A piece of advice I was given was roughly along the lines of "once you've bought something you forget the price". This is quite an expensive cover when you weigh up the price of the Kindle it will be holding. However, it will either make or break the experience of using your Kindle once you have bought it. This is what I thought - why buy a premium eReader and then stick it in a sub-standard case? Having seen many of the cheaper cases, up to and including ones for around £20, the quality of this one is very apparent. As you would expect, it fits the Paperwhite perfectly, with nothing obscuring the device like the straps in each corner found on cheaper cases. This makes it much smaller and slimmer too than similar products. The materials are lovely, and the detailing of the Kindle logo inside the front cover and the clasp really give it a touch of class. Aside from looking and feeling nice, I'm sure it would protect the device very well from most accidents or the rough and tumble of being thrown in a bag etc. When using the Kindle it is unobtrusive and is equally as nice to use open as it is with the front cover folded back behind the device. My only gripe with it when folded back is that the clasp can sometime feel a bit awkward depending on where your fingers lie. The auto sleep-wake feature works really well and allows for an authentic book reading experience of picking the Kindle up, opening the cover and starting to read without having to press any buttons or choose items on screen. Same goes when you've finished, just close the cover and the Kindle goes into sleep mode automatically. Overall it is expensive, but I feel well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good protection without adding too much bulk 25 Oct. 2012
Colour Name:Ink Blue|Verified Purchase
The "official" Amazon cover for the Paperwhite Kindle almost completely encases the device (leaving just a small gap at the bottom for access to the power switch and USB connector), without adding too much bulk to it. I would feel quite confident about putting this into a bag safe in the knowledge that my Kindle was well-protected. This is a definite improvement on the old Kindle Keyboard cases, which left three edges of the device exposed. The back is a hard, shell like structure. You can see the edges of it around the Paperwhite when it's in place, so this is something to be aware of if you think you'll be distracted by a persimmon coloured border. (I've gone for the ink blue which is dark enough not be distract me). The leather finish is grained like the old Kindle Keyboard covers, which I think will wear better than the smoother covers Amazon designed for the Kindle 4. It's quite tight to get the Paperwhite in, and once there, it fits snuggly. It won't fall out. The front of the cover is slightly more supple, but not soft, and it protects the screen well, particularly because it is held closed by a magnet. The interior fabric grey lining is unobtrusive and soft enough not to cause any concerns. I like the fact that opening/closing the cover wakes/sends the Paperwhite to sleep, a bit like the iPad smart covers. As another reviewer has noted, it's hardly onerous to press the power button, but it's a nice feature nonetheless. All in all, I'm pleased with this case. You end up paying quite a lot for the official Amazon covers, but this one does seem particularly well thought through, so I'm pleased with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous - protects and looks good 29 Dec. 2012
Colour Name:Onyx Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 0:58 Mins
The new cover seems to add as little bulk as possible to the Kindle, whilst protecting it and looking smart. The Paperwhite lighting means the bulk needed for a light in previous covers (eg the Sony) is no longer impeding easy use.
