K4K E-Reader Raincoat

I received the red e-Reader Raincoat from my mother-in-law for Christmas.  It is absolutely fantastic!

PROS:
1. There is a double zipper lock system to ensure that the Kindle will not get wet, sandy, or greasy.
2. I can read it in the tub without worrying too much about it getting wet (note: the case is not water-proof and they discourage you from trying to read underwater with the K4K Raincoat)
3. It is a fabulous red color with white stitching. Very chic.

CONS
1. It's a bit bulky.
2. Adds extra weight.
3. You have to unzip it to turn it on after it has been hibernating...which requires unzipping the double-locks.

If you have any questions...feel free to ask away.

    Can you take the waterproof part out of the case part (if that makes sense)? It looks like that bag part might be able to separate from the red case, is that true?

    I have one too and I love it as well!  And yes, you can take the zip loc compartment out of the case.   It is attached by a large piece of velcro.  My concern was what it the pouch rips?  I e-mailed the company and they have extras available, I was assured that it wouldn't be a problem.
