Pros:attractive, nice design, slim enough to fit in purse even with Kindle
Cons:not confident of protection of hard band or heavier weight
The Bottom Line: For someone looking for simple protection from everyday scratches or slight bumps, this sleeve will do fine. Not so much for those of u who are clumsy.
When I received my Kindle Fire for Christmas, one of the first things I went looking for was a way to store it and carry it without getting it scratched or otherwise damaged. I also didn’t want to spend a fortune. I came up with the Amazon Kindle Fire Zip Sleeve and purchased one in blue since that’s my favorite color.

I really liked the simple design of this sleeve. It was only zippered on two sides, making it easy to slide my Kindle in and out as needed. My Kindle fit in it pretty snugly and didn’t move around all that much. When I positioned the Kindle with the one zipper on the bottom edge, I didn’t even have to take it out of the sleeve to plug it into the charger. I simply opened the zipper to the port for charging and plugged it in. I also liked the fact that it was lightweight and conformed so much to the size of the Kindle itself. This made it easy to throw the Kindle in my purse instead of having to carry it separately when I was going somewhere.
However, after using it for a while I had more concerns. The cushioning on the inside of the Amazon Kindle Fire Zip Sleeve isn’t all that much. It’s enough to protect it from a slight bang or scratching, but if it got banged roughly into a table, I could see it getting damaged, never mind a scenario where there might be some actual weight involved. I can’t see this holding up at all in terms of protection. If you know how accident-prone I am, that’s a huge issue. I already broke my computer screen this year when I rolled over on it accidentally on my bed. I don’t know how much actual protection this sleeve would provide in a similar situation. It’s not like there’s any cardboard or anything in the lining of the sleeve. It doesn’t have the least bit of sturdiness to it.
That said, this is a nice, attractive sleeve for someone who just needs light protection and doesn’t want to be encumbered by all that goes along with some of the other cases out there for a Kindle Fire. The simple design and light weight to it make it an easy choice for someone who doesn’t have concerns about heavier damage. Mine will probably get passed on to one of my kids since I think I need to make sure my Kindle Fire is better protected.
