RooCase for Kindle 3
« on: October 08, 2010, 08:57:27 AM »

I just received my RooCase for my Kindle 3 from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/rooCase-Leather-Wireless-Reading-Generation/dp/B0043CA30I/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1286553104&sr=8-3

I like the look and feel of the case. I selected the red one. It currently comes in 4 colors. The case comes packaged in a hard box. It is genuine leather nicely stiched. The case is padded nicely with  a pebbled finish and a magnetic closure. The case folds back and the closure can be snapped so that flap is out of the way.  The Kindle is held in very secure by two leather straps at the bottom and two elastic with leather pieces at the top. All keys, switches and adapter areas are accessible with no problems. It is still a pretty lightweight case, about 6 oz and not a lot of bulk to try and hold in your hand. The case has an inside pocket for money or credit cards. I dont intend to use this other than maybe to put an card in it to identify if it is lost.  Over all I am very pleased with the case, its nothing fancy but I was not looking for that just nice case to protect my new Kindle and not cost a lot.  Hope this helps anyone that would like a nice case for the money.  ;D

Here are a few pictures of it. Although they make it look more pink than red it is a pretty deep red.  I have the Decal Girl Library skin in matte on my Kindle.

Very nice, I like the Library skin!!

Freaky thing though - this is, for all intents & purposes, completely identical to my non-branded Bundle Monster case (check out my review, listed one or two below yours on these boards). 

Stiching in same place, identical lay-out (same # of pockets and locations), same suede-y material that sits behind the Kindle, same exact holders for the Kindle, etc.

Must be the same company!!  They look like they're about the same price on Amazon, so at least neither of us should feel like we got ripped off - but strange all the same.   :D

That is funny. I know when I kept searching Amazon I could not get much to come up except their cases and I didn't want one of them :P. I don't remember the one that you purchased coming up. But they do look the same just different "brand" stamps on them. Your brown cover looks very rich your skin looks great with it. I wish my pictures didn't come out so pink looking it really is red. ;D. When I did a search on Bundle Monster I saw that they have a lot more colors. The RooCase only comes in 4 colors. Maybe they will add more.  I agree, I think we both got a good case at a good price.
