I was looking forward to receiving this as I thought it was a good, simple and effective solution to not getting my kindle scratched in my bag, being able to put it down around the house and know it was protected from spills, drops and scratches, but yet not hampering the kindle's design, weight and functions with unnecessary bulk. Other reviews had said that it was held firmly in this sleeve and would not fall out. When I put my kindle in the sleeve it felt baggy and I could see that other items from my bag could easily fall into the sleeve alongside the kindle and potentially scratch it. I also tried the 'will it fall out test' and held it over the bed - it fell out every single time, despite me willing it not to. It looked okay I suppose, but in the end I sent it back as it is not cheap and yet does not do anything that it needs to in my opinion - so not a good use of money. I therefore decided to give up on looking for cheaper alternatives to Kindle's own leather cover, which I now have and which is perfect for it's purpose and looks really great. Phew!
