I know, I know, it’s been a while since Franklin’s smash-hit post about his Kindle KlearKase, and since rumor spread that my Kindle Keyboard 3G broke, the masses have been itching to find out what I would do next?!
My Kindle broke somehow due to a traumatic blow to the screen while traveling. I used to use the standard issue faux-leather Amazon-issue Kindle case, which clearly (cause mine broke) doesn’t meet 20LL standards. I ended up securing another pre-owned Kindle Keyboard 3G for $75, so I was back in the market for a new case.
(If you don’t know why we use the particular Kindle model we do, see our gear post.)
After some hardcore Amazon-ing, I came across the, “CaseCrown Hard Case Cover (Black) for Amazon Kindle Keyboard.” I knew I needed something harder than the last one I had, but I sought to challenge the long-believed assumption, within the (non-existent) 20 Liter Life community, that the Kindle KlearKase was the one and only way to go. My problem with the KlearKase is that, although it is definitely the one of the most protective cases on the market, it is slightly large (or “donkey,” as we like to say), and I never really liked using Franklin’s Kindle when it was in the case.
Let me say, I found my solution in the CaseCrown. It’s a simple, nice-looking, and secure case that I am confident will protect my screen against traumatic blows. I prefer using my Kindle “naked” (so to speak), and this case completely removes so one can use the Kindle as-is. It also comes with a handy little Velcro attachment that allows you to prop up the Kindle for hands-free reading, should you feel the need. Although there isn’t all that much to say about this product (it’s pretty basic) I felt it definitely deserved a review just for the record.
Happy Kindle-reading my friends.
