Why is it that, so often, cases that come with products are really poor. That certainly is the situation with the Kindle case, which is bulky and allows the Kindle to fall out of it easily. If you want to secure the Kindle in the case you have to use a built-in elastic band that covers the scroll wheel and pointer. I was forced to add a piece of velcro to the back of the Kindle and another on the case to secure the unit. Very poor design.
M-edge has two Kindle cases and they kindly sent me review versions. Today we’ll look at what they call the Leisure Jacket. This is a case made of black suede-like material that has a transparent vinyl cover, a foam frame and a zipper closing. As you can see from the picture, you can read the Kindle and access all the buttons through the vinyl. There is a small cutout for the scroll wheel. To protect the Kindle’s screen just insert it face down. This is a very clever idea and ideal for reading at the beach, pool, or anywhere else where the Kindle might encounter water or dust. The suede feels nice and secure in your hand and everything fits perfectly. M-edge charges $29.99 and I think it’s well worth it. A lot of smartphone cases, which are a lot smaller, cost more than this. I notice that they have cases for the Sony, Cybook, iLiad and eFlybook as well. eFlybook? That’s a new one on me.
Next up their Executive Jacket.
