    Purchased this for my Kindle 2. I travel every week and I wanted a protective case that was comfortable and gave my Kindle a more book-like feeling. The case definitely accomplishes those things. The leather is high quality and very smooth. The front cover folds back easily behind the Kindle making it very easy to hold. The hinge locks are metal and so far have been very durable.

    The business card holder is a nice touch as if I were to ever leave my Kindle on a plane, I would hope that someone would return my Kindle to me.

    My only complaint is that it is not worth the $99 dollar price tag, when the $30 version from m-edge provides a higher value. My wife has the m-edge version which is a cheaper price and provides a corner flap for extra security. While the business card holder is nice, it prevents the cover from laying completely flush.

    I am definitely happy with the case and its overall quality. I probably would not buy it again as there are two nice alternatives from m-edge and octovo.

  2. I had initially thought I would just get a cover to protect the Kindle when I travel with it, as I had not been interested in spending the money for a leather cover. I read the reviews of the Kindle covers, which were very helpful and convinced me to get one in leather. The ones I had seen were black or colors that weren’t my favorite. Much to my delight, the dark brown cover was there to choose from, and I love it. It is elegant. I like the feel and smell of it, as well as the ability to use it like a book or fold it back. It is held securely in the cover, which gives me more to hold when reading it, and I’m not concerned about it sliding away or getting scratched. I would recommend it highly.

    This cover is gorgeous — smooth, soft, unblemished leather — and I thought it would be perfect. But the cover simply did not fit the Kindle correctly. I tried two of them before I gave up, and they both had the same problem (though to Amazon’s credit, the exchange and the subsequent return processes were smooth and easy). When I inserted the Kindle in the hinge system, the Kindle did not rest flat against the back cover; the right edge of the Kindle stuck up in the air about 1/3 inch, cantilevered out from the hinges. If I pressed down on the Kindle, it might have laid flat against the back cover temporarily, but after reading of other Kindle owners’ problems with their cases cracking (using other covers, not this one), I was not interested in subjecting my Kindle to any more stress than necessary at the hinge connector points. So I’ve returned it. It’s too bad, because I really wanted to love this cover!

    I decided to purchase this rather extravagent “Kindle cover” by Cole Haan because I wanted something more than just “the basic” cover. I am very pleased with my decision. The Cole Haan leather cover is beautiful; the leather is as soft as butter and the interior is a fine suede. My Kindle is a fantastic investment and I wanted a cover that was as fantastic. True, it’s a bit pricey, but hey, I wanted the best for my Kindle (which I think is the best, too!!). No regrets.

    This cover is just beautiful – BUT: I have to agree with many other reviewers – the hinges are not good. The bottom one aligned correctly and slipped right in, but the top didn’t come close to matching up with the Kindle 2 top hinge slot.

    So I had a dilemma. Return it or attempt to fix it? I elected to bend the hinge slightly up (with a hemostat, all I had handy) and it worked. Luckily for me, I guess. The top then did slip right in and it now seems very secure. But one shouldn’t have to fix something this expensive at ALL! The other thing I “fixed” after another reviewer mentioned it (thank you!!) was I applied two small pieces of double-sided tape to the back of the Kindle to affix it to the back cover. Now I can’t accidentally open it the wrong way, and my Kindle doesn’t flop about inside the cover. It stays put, yet I can remove the tape without damage to the cover or the Kindle.

    The cover itself is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful, creamy suede inside – it feels so nice to hold. I’m sure it will get dirty, and the soft outer leather will get scratched, but I decided I could live with it aging gracefully. The only thing about the outer leather being so smooth is that it slips in my hands almost as much as a naked Kindle! I imagine as the leather wears, however, that too will become a non-issue.

    I bought this cover as a splurge – and it really is a thing of beauty. It is padded very well front and back and seems like it will protect my Kindle.

    Pay attention to the hinges, though. I don’t really recommend trying to fix it yourself – I just got lucky on that!
