Quick poll to help decide next cover the Bobarra Austen or wait patiently for Strangedog dark and Stormy night.  Can not decide on my own

Bobarra bags are padded bags, and the StrangeDogs are beautiful covers,  One is a bag and the other is a cover.

Actually, Misty has it right: Bobarra makes Kindle covers. BorsaBella makes Kindle bags.

I don't own either cover you're mentioning, though I've thought about both. There's a couple of big differences I can think of--price being the most obvious, but also the holding mechanism & the quality of workmanship.

Bobarra--more expensive, professionally made, corners for holding Kindle in. There have been reports that their corners do not have the security of other brands, at least a few users on these boards have had theirs slip out. A search on Bobarra should produce some opinions.

Strangedog--less expensive, possible long wait, metal clip & velcro mechanism. Security-wise, I've not heard anyone have problems with these, though the clips leave me a little concerned about possible scratches. I have yet to see anyone complain about theirs, which says a lot. Again, a search of these forums on Strangedog should give you plenty of opinions to ponder.

I love my Bobarra cover!  It's the Thoreau style with and Austen print...a special one that Andrea had available and offered up to me when I was emailing with her.  It's gorgeous...pink and green print, padded on the outside, the front folds back for comfortable, one handed reading and has a brown suede inside and brown leather trim.  It has corners and my K2 stays snuggling inside.  I haven't seen where others have had an issue with the corners on her covers, but I remember reading someone had problems with the magnet on the first round of covers she did.  I believe she took care of that issue for that person.  If you have any questions, you can email Andrea...great customer service!
