This is much better than anticipated. A much darker colour than illustrated. It is ideal. It does make a very slim Paperwhite three times thicker admittedly, about the size of a standard paperback. Very soft in texture, it feels good in your hand. I wasn't sure about the strap, it looked gimmicky and adds to the thickness but I've actually found it very handy. It comes with a stylus, but I like a full length stylus and standard versions slide easily enough into the elastic by the side of the case, and that too is very handy and convenient. It protects my Kindle and keeps it clean, and very simply feels good to hold. Much, much better value than the one's recommended by Amazon, and more deeply padded for protection.
