    I purchased this product along with the new “Kindle” (the new smallest $79 version) because I’ve liked Built products in the past (great digital camera cases). Everything but the lining of this envelope-shaped case is made of tough, thick, neoprene-like material. It repels water and will certainly hold-up to normal transport and wear and tear. The case is held closed by industrial grade velcro tabs on each corner of the envelope’s flap. The velcro is strong enough that this is not going to pop open. Once you open the top flap, there is a zippered, flat pocket on the front of the main “pocket” part of the envelope. It spans the entire width of the envelope and perfectly fits the USB charger cord that comes with any of the Kindles. Note: You would not be able to fit anything bulky in this pocket, like a clip-on light or USB electrical outlet adapter.
    The lining is made of a very plush and soft, synthetic material that feels like a luxe throw blanket. It adds a little extra cushioning to this product and will absolutely never scratch the screen of your kindle. Also, the product is fairly light weight and doesn’t add unwanted bulk and weight to traveling with your Kindle.
    Even with buying the smaller Kindle, this envelope is a secure fit and the Kindle does not move around in the case, and it certainly will not fall out. I can tell that the Touch would also fit, but this evelope would be more of a sleeve-type fit for the slightly bigger Touch.
    I would definitely recommend this as a great case for the Kindle or Touch.
    UPDATE: I now own the Kindle Touch (which is fabulous) and this case does work fantastically. As I suspected, this case is a very true fit, like a sleeve, when used with the Touch. But you don’t have to struggle to slide the Touch into the case.
    Also, to address another review, I do not think this case is too bulky or thick. It appears as pictured and the neoprene + soft lining ensures that your Kindle will not break if you drop it or have other items poke into it while it’s in your bag. However, this case is not a thin sleeve; so if you are looking for a sleeve that will basically just protect the screen from scratches, then this product will have more heft and bulk than you are expecting.

    This review is from: BUILT Kindle and Kindle Touch Neoprene Envelope Case, Black (Accessory)

    I purchased this Envelope because I was tiring of repurchasing different sleeves and covers every time I got a new Ereader or upgraded. I had the Built Open Sleeve for my old K3, which I liked, but it’s considerably too large for the new Kindle. It fits, but without a closure and snug grip, the ereader is liable to fall out if it’s accidently turned upside down or sideways.

    I’ve also previously purchased the Timbuk2 nylon envelope for a older version Kindle (K2), but I disliked its stiff bulkiness.

    This Envelope gets 3 1/2 stars for the following reasons:

    Pro: The shell is very well padded and secure, and the interior is plush and soft, with no chance for scratches. Also, it smells fine. I’ve never received anything from Built that had a smelly Neoprene stench.

    Note/Observation: For those that are curious, no the K3 (Kindle Keyboard) does not fit into this envelope. It’s a little over 1/2″ too long. I have a feeling the new Timbuk2 envelope for K4/Touch might, since they usually run big. But just to be clear, this was not a concern of mine.

    Cons: The shell is already well padded, just like their other Open Sleeves, but the flap closure is just as padded and creates added bulkiness, that really isn’t necessary IMO. I also really don’t understand the side zipper pocket. I personally will never use it, unless I’m traveling for an extended period of time. There is also a bit of clunkiness in regards to it in the closed state. It does not exactly lay flat and flush (puffs out on the front top sides).

    Overall, I’m a bit disappointed, especially for $30. I already have other sleeves that sort of work, so I don’t need another I don’t really care for. I’m returning this one and trying out the new Timbuk2 soft envelope.

    My last cover for my K2 was a really nice pale pink leather case. I really liked it. But this one serves my purpose much better as I like to read my Kindle naked. This case is very well made, and lightweight. I love that I can just slip my Baby Kindle inside, close it with the velcro closing and know that it is safe and sound. It also has a zippered pouch just under the flap that will fit the charging cord. I cannot imagine a better case….thank you BUILT.
