4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping your grip..., 23 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Marware SportGrip Silicone Skin Case for Kindle Cover, Black (will only fit Kindle) (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We already have a Marware Eco-Flip Leather Cover for Kindle and although it's great there are times when we needed something a bit more streamlined and less 'formal' for everyday use, so decided to give this SportGrip sleeve a try. From past experience with similar mobile phone covers I know some silicon covers are total lint magnets and pick up every bit of dust or fluff they come into contact with - so far this SportGrip sleeve seems to have avoided that, the cover has a nice secure non-slip feel to it but remains relatively lint-free in use. Still not sure why it's called the 'SportGrip' - maybe more athletic readers use their Kindles as ping-pong bats at the weekend?

The other concern with silicon sleeves is the balance between being thick enough to offer some bump protection and still be thin enough to allow easy use of all the controls. Again the SportGrip gets this about right, maybe erring a bit on the side of cushioning - you do have to press a couple of the Kindle buttons slighty more firmly than before but it's a worthwhile compromise for the extra protection. I only wish we'd got it sooner as our Kindle is showing some wear and tear, but then once inside its new sleeve you'd never know. Note, there's no screen protection at all with this cover so you need to purchase screen protectors separately if you feel you need them. It's not the cheapest silicon Kindle sleeve but it's the best I've seen (and felt).
