Belkin Neoprene Amazon Kindle Zip Case
The Amazon Kindle 2 has a 6 inch screen. The Kindle DX has a 9.7 inch screen. That is a lot of screen to protect. Belkin has come up with another great product that does just that.
If you are like me – you prefer cases that hold and protect without adding bulk and weight to the electronic device. This Belkin Case is designed to protect the Latest Generation Kindles. It does not attach to the Kindle any way. It does not add a lot of weight because it is made of neoprene (wetsuits are made with neoprene) with a faux leather insert sewn on top which provides an extra gripping surface.
How Does this Belkin Case Protect the Kindle 2 and the Kindle DX?
This Belkin case provides a way to safely carry the Kindle with you wherever you go. Carry it alone or inside of another bag. Two zippers make it easy to access the Kindle inside. The zippered opening reaches from the left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner. You simply slip the Kindle inside and remove it the same way.
Scratching your Kindle is not a worry with this Belkin Case. The neoprene fabric is soft and smooth to the touch and the zipper opening is padded as well. Even though scratches do not hinder you while reading the Kindle it can affect the way you feel about your Kindle.
If you have used a laptop sleeve you have a good idea of how this Belkin Kindle case works. It is not necessarily meant to protect from crushing but it works very well to prevent scratches and dings.
Is this Kindle Case Easy to Use?
This Belkin case is meant to provide quick and easy access to your Kindle. Most of us do not have the time to leisurely read for hours and hours. Reading for a quick 10 to 30 minutes is more common. Time spent reading is more important than time spent messing with fancy cases.
Safety is another consideration. Just like many laptops are now carried in non-conspicuous bags the Belkin Kindle case does not scream what is inside.
This soft sleeve of a bag is just right for anyone that wants to keep things simple. It would be nice to have a firm surface on the front side to protect the Kindle screen. However, unless you place the case in a situation that it has a lot of heavy books or uneven surfaces pressing against it there should be no problem.
