Excellent case even if a bit dear...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timbuk2 Plush Sleeve Case for 7-Inch Tablets with Memory Foam for Impact Absorption, BW Polka Dots/White (Accessory)
I was a lucky girl because the Fat Guy In Red brought me a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas!! Although my old Kindle Keyboard is by no means dead, and the Tuff Luv "Guardian" neoprene case I use for my KK would fit the Fire HD, once I knew I was getting my new toy I thought I'd treat myself to a new case. Although I really liked the Lola/Floral version of this case, at the point I wanted to buy one there were none in stock so I ordered my second choice. Went for the free delivery option as didn't expect it before Christmas, delivery was promised by 29/12 but it arrived on Christmas Eve ready to be used on Christmas Day!
I was a bit concerned at first as the item description here says "will only fit Kindle Fire HD" BUT the card attached by the manufacturer says it's for the KK and Fire with the Fire HD not getting a mention. Husband had a momentary panic about whether it would be ok until I slid the Fire HD neatly into the case and it fitted like the proverbial glass slipper.
Some of the other reviews for this sleeve (may be on a different entry) say that the material feels cheap etc. On this particular case, an in my opinion, the material is fine - quite sturdy and resilient - and the interior has a very soft plush finish. I don't doubt that it will protect my beloved Fire HD from getting scratched and knocked about in transit, although I wouldn't want to risk dropping it or standing on it to test how well the memory foam copes.
All in all, I'm happy with my purchase although I would agree with some other reviewers that the price could do with reducing a little. That said, I would happily buy another as and when this one needs replacing.
