This sleeve arrived to my offshore Island location 2 days after my order. Communications from the supplier was both quick & helpful. I have now used the Kindle & sleeve for a week & wanted to give a review.
After a lot of thought, I decided that I wanted to take advantage of the lightness of the Kindle & buy a sleeve for protection when my Kindle was not in use. I have already seen & tried the Amazon leather lighted cover as a friend of mine has one, I felt however that it made the Kindle a little heavy. My requirement was for something that I could both use to store the Kindle at home, but also to use in a bag when travelling. I did not need it to be waterproof.
The sleeve is of high quality, neatly made & stitched in brushed linen, with a look & feel a little like the texture of a good woollen suit fabric. The inside layer is a thin, but very soft fabric giving me confidence that the screen will be protected from scratches. Sandwiched between is some light padding, which appears enough to protect the Kindle for a drop to the floor. Just inside there is a lip of fabric, not unlike a pillowcase sleeve that when the Kindle is flipped under the lip (which is a little fiddly), the sleeve can be shaken vigorously without the Kindle showing any signs of falling out. The sleeve is a however already a snug fit so the Kindle is quite secure in general storage. I expect that when travelling, I will will use the lip for additional protection.
I am very hard to please with my gadgets & this sleeve exactly matches my requirements. The quality fabrics, manufacture, lack of branding, protection & snug fit make this sleeve perfectly match my expectations.
