    I had been lusting after the Cole Haan cover for the Kindle2 for a long time and when they went on sale this spring I bought one and I love it. When I pre-ordered my Kindle 3 I anxiously awaited the Cole Haan release for the new K3. Well it arrived today and I’m disappointed with it. My K2 case has an extra piece of leather sewn on the spine of the cover. The new one doesn’t. At first it seems like a minor styling detail difference though I personally think the cover looks much sharper, classic, with the added leather. It also stiffens the spine which helps center the cover over the front of the Kindle. Without it it is much more floppy. It doesn’t feel as good in the hand either when holding closed package. The added leather on the spine of the K2 cover did not affect the ability of the cover to fold back for one handed reading so I don’t know why this was eliminated other than to save cost or to rush these to market. In fairness the photos on Amazon clearly shows this spine is missing I just did not notice it until I had if in my hand. Not sure I’ll keep it.

    Update: I am returning the cover.

    I bought this along with the Amazon cover. Though the leather feels wonderful, it doesn’t seem very substantial. The size is also larger by about 1/4″ all the way around. Like the other reviewer stated I think the extra leather binding added structurally to the feel. My wife has the Kindle 2 and I bought this cover for her. Made me really want one. This one just doesn’t seem as well thought out, and the hooks didn’t seem as tight as Amazons. It made a clicking noise on the top hook, after making sure it was fully hooked.

    I would also like some sort of closure in the future.

    I’m sticking with Amazon’s cover and sending this back. It seems much better designed and although the leather isn’t as soft it definitely feels more protective.

    Unfortunately I have to agree with the other reviews. I loved the Cole Haan cover for my Kindle 2. But this one simply does not work. The reasons have already been mentioned: floppy cover, slightly too large, missing spine stitches.

    I received my dark green pebbled CH yesterday, and what a disappointment.

    While the leather was very soft to the touch, I can’t really say that it was pebbled: it was actually very irregular, slightly pebbled in places, and completely smooth in others – it made me wonder if they had re-used used leather. It was however, completely marbled…

    The cover is indeed floppy (for a lack of a better word), but that isn’t a problem if you are fine with a very soft type of cover (definitely a pleasure to hold when folded back). What really bothered me, was that the cover simply seemed too big! As in too much leather! There is a large gap (at least a quarter inch) between the K3 and the edges of the cover, which is useless on such a soft cover and doesn’t make for a comfortable right hand holding. When closed, the front of the cover, because it is so soft, and when it is flush with the front K3, is also too big and the edge goes beyond the edge of the back – not sure if I’m making myself clear, but basically, when closed, the front of the cover is half an inch longer (wider) than the back!

    I was also disappointed that the whole thing was crooked. I totally realize that I have a tendency to like everything to be nice and even. But at that price, I do expect my Kindle to be perfectly centered when in the hinges (and not have the top lean more towards the inside of the cover than the bottom), the stitching to be perfectly even, the logo on the front to be straight, and the edges of the case to also have straight lines and no diagonals…

    On the plus side, the color itself is a lovely dark olive green, as beautiful as I had imagined it.

    All in all, it could have been a lovely (if minimalistic, especially in terms of protection) case. But it seems not finished, and quality control is definitely very poor here. I remember that the first K2 CH cases also had issues, which were then fixed somewhere down the line. So I may give those another try in a few weeks or months. But for now, this particular case is sadly going back.

  5. although previous reviewers are correct in mentioning the floppy cover, i have no objection to this and actually like it. the leather is very soft and the suede provides a great feel. if you are looking for protection, you should likely look elsewhere. and i found the size to be just fine for me.
