5.0 out of 5 stars Like a Giant Sock for your Kindle 9 Feb 2011
Colour Name:Midnight Blue
When comparing this item to the other covers available I was dubious of the quality and the protection that this would give my Kindle, due to the lower price. Whilst it isn't leather and doesn't have a light, its a thicker, more protecting version of the iPod socks that Apple produced for their products. The sleeve itself is a little long, but is well elasticated so it hugs the unit effectively. If your looking for an funky, cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive covers available look no further than this sleeve for protection, fashion and functionality combined.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wildly overpriced 24 Jan 2011
Colour Name:Black
Charging 17+ for a glorified sock is a bit cheeky really. Whilst the knitted design is kind of cute, it's a very disappointing item for the price. It's highly unlikely to protect a Kindle from scratches, let alone anything more serious. I would be reluctant to take my Kindle out of the house if it had to rely on this for protection.

I made the mistake of searching for Kindle sleeves in the Kindle department on Amazon which brings up a very limited choice of very overpriced products. As a result, I bought this in a panic thinking there wasn't much else out there. I have since found that there are much better sleeves and covers available, far cheaper and offering much better protection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced 27 Jan 2011
Colour Name:Black
I agree with the other reviewer. I bought this item as a snazzy cover for the wife's kindle and indeed it does look ok. However I think the current price is far too much for it and the price/product underwhelmed me! I think this should be more around the ten pound mark at best tbh. As a cover just for keeping dust off your kindle around the house it is ok. It would offer absolutely no protection out and about and so people must consider this when buying. If you need something to keep your Kindle safe stay away from this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle sleeve 1 April 2011
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I wanted something to protect my Kindle without spending a fortune. many of the covers on sale are quite expensive and rather fancy. When this one arrived, it looked a bit like a sock! However, it is absolutely great. The Kindle fits snugly inside and the cover does not add weight. A really good value buy.

Colour Name:Midnight Blue
I waited weeks for the delivery of this particular cover (a Belkin issue rather than Amazon one I understand) and I love the way it looks i.e. colourful and not rat race black/brown/grey.

I was a bit disappointed with the size as it is about 4cm longer than the length of the new Kindles - maybe the length has a purpose but (a) I don't know what it is and (b) I don't like it!

I tend to disagree a bit with the previous two reviewers as I do believe it protects the Kindle from handbag/briefcase/pocket type scratches. I don't think it likely to save the Kindle from a drop from a great height but then what case light enough to cart about with you would?

It is overpriced but that again, is a Belkin issue not an Amazon one - like it or not we're probably paying for the name. Either way, it is exactly as it looks on the picture so I knew what I was getting for my money when I made my choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good protection
Although it doesn't say it is OK for Kindle Touch, it is a good snug fit with a little extra length. Once the Kindle is out of the sleeve there is no loss of the original design.

A well-made sock for a Kindle, but then it should be for the relatively high asking price. It probably isn't going to protect the Kindle if you drop it, but it provides a nice... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars belkin knitted kindle sleeve
It does the job but to be honest I think its a bit expensive for what it is. When it needs replacing I'll make myself a quilted one at a fraction of the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light weight and stylish
I bought this because I had bought the leather cover and found it to be too heavy when lugging it around day-to-day. This is very light weight and protects my precious kindle. Read more
