OCTOVO Vintage Leather Kindle Cover is about twice the price of the standard Amazon Kindle cover but has received extremely positive feedback from owner:
- The case has received many compliment.
- The beautiful leather is a delight both to touch and see.
- The distressed brown leather will pick up scratches, scuffs, and moisture easily but these will blend in.
- The cover is made out of a brushed leather that marks easily, but I feel only adds to the appearance.
- The leather is very soft and warm feeling, not shiny or hard like many electronics cases.
- A single retaining strap secures the Kindle to the back cover. Most complaints regarding the hinge system seem to be caused by the Kindle falling forward away from the back of the cover and placing stress on the casing causing cracks.
- Does not fasten in closed position.
- The cover is not super slim and is very slightly bulky compared with other covers.
