I was pleasantly surprised when I received my case earlier this week. Having read some of the reviews I thought it might be bulky - but not so. I like the way it folds back on itself to enable you to zip it up again making it so easy to handle when reading (no need to take it out of case to read) and no problem accessing the on off switch too, so another bonus. The strap at the back makes it feel secure in your hand whilst reading. I also managed to put the usb cable in the zipped pouch at the front - perfect, stops me from losing it! The prime reason for buying this version was because it closed securely and stops anything in your bag getting between the Kindle and the cover and damaging it (this seems to be a problem with the leather version without a clasp). It appears to be very well made and can only think that a previous reviewer had a dodgy one and suggests he returns it for an exchange! All in all a good buy, great colour and I would recommend it.
