I have injured my arm and hand, and needed a Kindle cover with a hand strap. I ordered this and am very, very happy. The case is sturdy and well made and the Kindle fits inside it securely. The magnetic fastening is strong. I love the design, which is light and bright, so makes my Kindle easy to find. I love the fact that it has a pull out stand and I love the hand-strap. I can just slide my hand through the strap to balance my Kindle in my hand. I have large hands but the elasticated strap has enough give in it for me to fit my hand through comfortably. My Kindle feels really secure. In fact, I dropped my arm by my side and the Kindle remained in place, and did not slip or drop (the last photo shows the case on my hand when my arm is down by my side). If you are looking for a case, get one of these. They have a wide range of cover designs to choose from; there is something for every taste. I have attached some photos in case they are helpful.
This is the best cover/case you could possibly buy for your basic kindle, it has all you need. I use the strap for night-time reading as this makes it much more comfortable to read when lying on your side in bed. And when I'm doing something with my hands like eating etc, I use the stand so I can still read but hands-free - perfect! What I love about the stand is that that it is stable and won't move about at all when you are reading. The only negative about this product (though its not really a problem) is that is is heavier than some other cases and I like mine to be as light as possible when holding. But like I said, its not really an issue because if its starts to get a bit heavy in your hands after a while, you can flip up the stand and read hands-free. I purchased the Starry Night cover and it looks very smart, I would highly recommend it. Don't delay, buy this today. You won't be disappointed.
I love the look of this case (the starry night one), and it has so many great features. I have used the strap to help me hold my Kindle while standing up on public transport, and use the little stand when reading at a table over lunch to free up my hands. The little 'card' pocket is useful too.
The Kindle clicks into place and then doesn't feel loose at all.
The whole thing feels sturdy and well built. After a few months of constant use in my bag, there are no obvious signs of wear. Would absolutely recommend.
After i reported my problems (see below) i got really great support from Linda at the seller, despite as i make clear in my original comment below (where i gave 1* only) the real problem is the confusing, too complicated, naming BY AMAZON of their Kindle models. How did i know that the one i was purchasing the cover for in late 2019 was a 2018 model? (My original complaint is below: "It didn't fit the latest Kindle! I took graet care - again - to try to match cover to Kindle. Again it failed. The cover had to be discarded. I purchased both on Amazon three days apart, and checked as best i could, before the Kindle had arrived. AMAZON should advertise all their Kindles with a simple code on the front of the Ad, and then cover sellers could note the same code. This is not the first time i have had this problem, and it seems to me that AMAZON themselves can easily facilitate fixing it."
Bought 2, one for me and one for my mum. The case is sturdy, holds kindle well and stand works good so no need to hold kindle all the time. Has wake up facility and protects kindle although it is quite heavy. Will be ideal for holidays, especially when sunbathing on my stomach. Will no longer have to hang over end of sunbed and prop my kindle on a pair of shoes, will be able to use stand - sorted. That's if I ever get away on holiday again, until then it'll be the back garden!!
The Case is very light and neat, the table top support is an excellent prop, my only downside concerns are the long term robustness of the opening hinge and the sometimes difficulty in opening the Case with Kindle inside which could lead to me dropping the whole thing on the floor, hopefully that's due to the newness (10 days old) and will ease off a little.
This is an excellent case, I originally bought an origami forefront case but it wasn't very sturdy so I decided to try this one instead, this was more expensive but is so much nicer. The stand is very sturdy, the case is a bit heavier and more bulky than the origami case but i still prefer this one. It is magnetic so the case stays closed, it is also magnetic when it's open so the case doesn't flap about when you're reading, the stand is also magnetic so when not using the stand it won't come out by accident. The grey is a really lovely colour as well.
I really like the case, it is good quality and fantastic that you can alternate between using the hand strap and have a stand as well.
It is lightweight but would be even nicer if it was featherweight. That's being really finicky and I can't see how it could be made lighter to be honest. The hard casing on the back is very sturdy and it has magnetic closing and this works when it's open too, it sticks to the back.
