Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I looked at just about every Kindle cover I could find and settled on this one despite the comparatively hefty price because it seemed to offer the most protection.
Upon arrival I found the case extremely well made and sturdy. My only reservation was how hard it would be to operate the buttons through the heavy clear front of the case. The short story on that is that it is a non issue. Even with my large fingers pushing individual buttons is not a problem.
The case fits the kindle like a glove and should prove proof, by a wide margin, against any accidental damage one could expect from every day use.
Things to know;
There is no access to the bottom controls, power/wake up switch, volume control, speaker and charging port, with the case sipped completely closed. I don't have any problem with this. With the two zipper construction getting access is just a matter of keeping the two zippers close at the bottom right of the case and unzipping...
This is my 9th M-Edge cover between my new, my old, and my husband's Kindle. I LOVE M-Edge covers. I purchased my first Leisure Jacket for my Kindle 2 so I could read in the bathtub without worrying about the occasional splash of water. I used that cover almost every night for about a year when I took a bath, but I didn't keep it in that case permanently since the plastic wasn't completely flat. It had a slight ripple which made for an annoying glare sometimes.
This new Leisure Jacket fits like a dream though! The plastic (at least on mine) is absolutely 100% flat which greatly reduces the glare problem. I also like that they ditched the canvas strip on the side. I guess it's no longer necessary since the 5-way button doesn't stick up anymore...the case looks MUCH better without that strip. I not only use this in the tub though, I've been using it for every day use as well. I've been using the M-Edge Trip Jacket for the last few months and, while I really like it, it's nice...
I purchased this Kindle case because I wasn't sure what I ultimately wanted out of an everyday cover, but I do know that I will be reading my Kindle outdoors a lot. The Vinyl cover is essential for that purpose and I am very pleased that I bought this. I will not, however, be using it everyday... While the protection is perfect for outdoors, the Vinyl is noticeable over the Kindle screen. It adds glare and is not perfectly tight over the screen - a little wavy. Of course, I expected as much and that's just fine in knowing that little grains of sand won't blow in if I set it on my beach towel for a minute, but when sitting INdoors, it is pretty annoying. The nice thing about the Kindle screen is the non-glare, so adding a glare top rather defeats the purpose of a key Kindle feature. The other thing I don't like is that this piece of Vinyl is the only protection on the front. You can easily flip the Kindle over for transport, but I think I'd like to see a little extra...
