4.0 out of 5 stars Good cover but overpriced!, 24 May 2012
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Zip Sleeve, Graphite (fits Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle and Kindle Touch) (Accessory)
I bought this cover at the same time as I bought my Kindle Touch on a visit to the States, benefiting from the dollar price and delivered direct to my Vegas Suite! At the time I did think the 20$ was quite expensive for the case but was convinced by the reviews on Amazon.com. It's even dearer on Amazon UK!

I am glad I bought the case because it has proved to be just right. I don't like extra bulk on my Kindle Touch when reading and wanted a removable case simply to protect it in my pocket or bag. The Zip is fine and I've had no problems at all with its durability. The fabric of the case itself is thick enough to do it's job without adding too much extra weight or bulk - in fact I've used my Kindle on deployment in Afghanistan and this case has been perfect - allowing me to carry the Kindle around in the thigh pocket of my combat trousers so it's available whenever I have time for reading. The honeycomb padding on the inside of the case does a good job of protecting the eReader - but I've found it leaves a feint mark on the Kindle itself over a period of several months' use. This is not really any damage, just a sheen that's slightly visible in the right light. The case could offer better protection and better value for money if it offered a thin aluminum sheet embedded in the case to protect the screen itself from sharp knocks.

The leather 'strap' on the outside of the case is great for carrying it - but also for clipping my Kandle by Ozeri II in Graphite -- Designed for the Amazon Kindle (fits latest generation Kindle and all models), and other eBook readers to the Kindle case so that's readily available as well!

I guess Amazon will go on ripping us off with accessories like this case and the similarly overpriced Kandle just so long as we keep buying them! Resist if you can - but they are both good.
