Hey Guys.. I was hoping to get some help.... I'm thinking of getting an Oberon Journal cover for my K2 & amazon cover. I really like the Celtic Oak.... but I can't decide on a color. Suggestions would be great... Here's pics of my K2 with skin...




& Here's a link to the cover I like: http://www.oberondesign.com/shop/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=208

Also, I was wondering... those that have the Amazon/Oberon cover... is it considerably larger & heavier than the K2 w/ just the Amazon? Pretty easy to fold back when reading?
Any Virginians have this?
thanks so much for your help :D

I just got my Oberon K2 Cover (River Garden in red) and it is definitely heavier than the Amazon cover. I saw a post somewhere that showed the weights of the various covers I think the Amazon came in at about 6.5 oz and the Oberon is about 9.2 oz http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,6053.0.html
WOW! When you combine them together it's going to be pretty heavy :( Maybe I won't alter the Amazon cover & use it when I'm home, etc.. & Oberon for her "outdoor wear"

Thanks everyone for the input.. please keep it coming :)
I was looking at Green or Chocolate... but Green won't go with my skin... anyone have a Chocolate? I'm assuming it's the dark leather.

I'm in central VA, just west of Fredericksburg, and I have two Oberon covers, red Sky Dragon for my K1 and red Sun for my K2. I can't compare with the Amazon cover, but several other threads have discussions of that, weight, protection, etc. I love the Oberon covers. Mine fold back easily and are very comfortable and solid to hold, besides being beautiful, of course.

I agree that saddle would be nice.  But purple or wine might set the skin off nicely, too.  I think of skins as more disposable that covers (because they're so much cheaper!), so I'd just get the color that you'll like the best long term.

If you are going with the Oberon Journal, I think one of the blacks would be striking - maybe Tribal on page 5 (I tried to get the picture here and am doing something wrong), or one of the celtic designs in either the Journal or K2 cover.  Have fun choosing!
