I don't know what constitutes too rough but I have read posts from some folks that they did not like the Oberon covers because they were rough. They ended up buying a smoother m-edge and really liked them. Since Oberon's cannot be returned, you might be running a risk ordering one.MineKinder said:I received my Cole Haan bronze cover today with my K2, and I am not liking the cover at all.
Of course this is my FIRST Kindle. But the cover is too rough and stiff, for my liking. Also I don't like the 4 elastic bands, that hold it.
I am going to return it soon, and wait for a velcro Oberon. Now I know... I will go with a smoother Oberon, maybe one with a pattern just on the front, and with VELCRO for sure!
Just my $0.02!
I am not trying to discourage you from ordering an Oberon, I love my Sky Dragon, just suggesting that the Oberon covers are not smooth. I don't know how they compare to the Haan covers texturally. Just tossing it out there for your consideration.
