5.0 out of 5 stars Protecting My New Toy, 20 May 2012
This review is from: Marware Atlas Kindle Cover, Black (fits Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle and Kindle Touch) (Accessory)
This cover isn't leather, so it is quite pricey, but I think it is worth it because it does look and feel like it is good quality.

It is very comfortable to hold because it is nice and squashy, whilst feeling sturdy enough to keep my Kindle well protected. The Kindle fits into the cover really easily. There are four little elastic pieces on each corner of the inside of the cover that you simply slide the Kindle into. They are quite a snug fit, which is good because it holds the Kindle in place perfectly. I haven't even felt it budge a millimetre so far and the elastic feels and looks to be strong enough that it will last. The elastic pieces are doubly good because they mean that very little of the device is covered. It certainly doesn't impeach on any of the buttons in any way, making it completely functional. In fact you hardly even notice that it is not part of the Kindle itself. I though it may make it difficult to press the buttons at the side that turn the pages backwards and forwards, but thankfully this is not at all the case.

One of the best things about the cover is that it folds over the Kindle to make it a bit like reading a traditional book. I think it makes it feel more comfortable and familiar. Coupled with the fact that it is so comfortable to hold, it makes taking the step from normal to E- book a lot easier - it's just a shame they can't make it smell like the pages of a book!!

The cover has another elastic strap that hooks over the front of it when it is closed to hold it in place, like a folio folder. Again this one is quite snug and sturdy and does a fine job. It can also be used to hold the front cover open. On the inside of the front cover there is an elasticated panel that is meant to be a holding strap for when you turn the cover backwards. I can't quite understand the purpose of this, I can only assume that is designed to be easy to hold if you are trying to read in an awkward place - I have read some say it is handy on the Tube for example. I have tried to hold it this way and my hand does fit into the grip comfortably, but it is just as easy for me to hold the book in the usual way so I doubt that I will ever use it like this. I am also slightly concerned that it would damage the spine of the case.

The only problem I have found with the cover is that it gets very hot in the sun, but I'm not sure if this is just the black one that I have.

It is pricey, but I think it is worth it because it does look and feel expensive and fit for purpose. I think it would have been a shame to waste money on an inadequate case that wouldn't offer the protection that this one does. Plus, with a life time warranty, you know it is good for life.
