If you follow the storefront - this company has this style kindle 2 cover in many colors- brown, black camel, a few blues, red, pink, cherry pink... it looks pretty much like the m-edge cases but cheaper and they claim to be ultra-light weight so probably lighter. Both leather and non-leather options.

here is the link to all the colors:

looks like a cheaper and probably lighter option to m-edge flip covers.

Wow!  It looks just like M-Edge's Platform cover w/out the extra ledge on the left for the light.  And the price can't be beat.

Yeah I'm glad I found them . I like it doesn't have that extra room and the price is really nice. Just what I need-- another kindle cover!

That is astonishingly cheap!  The minute someone gets one of these, I hope they'll post a review--preferably complete with the actual weight. :)

I ordered one and should get it by the middle of next week. I love how cheap they are and they do say light weight so hopefully around 5-6 ounces. I have a new digital scale so I'll post the weight and my impressions when I get it.

These look great. I love the royal blue. Even though the third picture on that one looks like it's flipping me off lol.

Wow. How can Amazon get away with it looking exactly like the m-edge right down to the stitching and the shape of the place where the tab fits in?

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this case. It's hard to beat $20 for a leather case.

I have to admit, they do look identical to the M-edge covers from what I can see. I do wonder how they can do that, but at that price, you could switch them out frequently whenever you want a different color.

Well I would imagine a company can copy another's design. I have seen a lot of iphone cases from various companies that look exactly the same. For that matter m-edge is copying amazon's design with the Go jackets. If this company copies the design but makes it lighter and more compact I am all for that. I don't like m-edge cases because in general I find them to be too heavy and bulky.

I notice the last few choices come with an Amazon screen protector for $10 more.  Has anyone had an Amazon screen protector and if so, how do you like it (glare, bubbles, poor adhesion, etc.)?  If anyone has ordered one with the screen protector, I will be interested in hearing your thoughts when it arrives.

I received my midnight blue case today. It really is the same quality as the m-edge case ( I have had them in the past) so for the money this case is a real bargain. Quality is good. They use a darker grey material inside which I like since the light grey on the m-edge cases I think can get dirty easy. I don't agree with this companies statement of these cases being ultra light weight. I think they are a bit lighter than the m-edge ones but not by that much. The had accidentally sent me a non-leather one in royal blue . That one weighed just slightly more than 6 ounces. I got the navy blue one today and that is leather and it weighs 8 ounces. I know the leather m-edge ones are more like 10 ounces so this is lighter. If you are interested in m-edges platform cases and this company has the color you want I recommend checking them out. At $14 for non-leather and $20 for leather this is a bargain. I don't see any difference in quality.

Wow--I'm usually a real leather person, but if the synthetic is that much lighter, I'll pick one up. I really need something lightweight that still has substantial protection for days like today, when the Oberon is just too much for my hands to deal with.

Off to Amazon :) Thanks, Lisa, for letting us know!

(edit--prices have jumped; $19.81 for the synthetic and $24.81 for the leather. Still good deals, but with shipping it starts to creep up pricewise as Prime is not available.)

I kinda thought the price was probably an "introductory" price when they first came out.
