This is the latest in the M-Edge line. They sent me a review copy and I’ve been using it ever since. The jacket zips up all the way around so the Kindle 2 is fully protected. When opened you can fold the jacket back, if you like, for reading. The padded jacket weighs almost nothing and adds very little heft to the Kindle itself. The inside of the case is covered in a polar-fleece material so it is soft and won’t scratch the front or back of the Kindle.
There is another, curved, zippered compartment that holds the Kindle charger. It will also hold the M-Edge booklight, so you can carry everything on one package. Here’s a shot of the case with the booklight in place:
The light slips into a small compartment on the back of the case. You can fold the case back, by the way, with the light in place. The case is nicely padded and when it is zipped closed gives the Kindle the most protection of any of the cases I’ve seen. It’s also nice to be able to carry the whole kit at once. The Latitude Jacket costs $29.99 and is available from M-Edge here. It’s the best case I’ve seen so far for anyone who is traveling.
