Red Patent Leather Cole Haan Case For Kindle 2 Costs $120

Cole Haan Kindle 2 Case: Love It or Leave It?

One of the few things I don't like about the Kindle 2 is the lack of included cover; the first generation's included case. It saved you the hassle of buying a case and the suede on it was the tactile element the device itself was missing. Not into the hot red? It's also available in gold and black.

Getting one out of those two requirements is Cole Haan's Patent Leather Kindle 2 Case. The outside is a very shiny, luxe woven leather, while the inside has that nice suede that I so liked with the first one.

Unfortunately, it's also far from the free status of the first gen's case; it's $120. Then again, you're gonna end up shelling out for a case on the Kindle 2 anyway, why not make it a statement?

What do you think of this case — is it annoying you'd pay so much for something, or is the price fine for the quality of a Cole Haan product? And the leather — is it too shiny or just right?

This would match my Genevieve Cole Haan purse. If I had a kindle I might have to to get this. Would be better in chocolate brown plain leather

Nice colour, but I would like it more if it wasn't so shiny..

basic kindle case is $30. Is a fancier case for $100 more worth it? and the default case looks ok. by the way, these cases dont change the weight very much and actually make the kindle very easy to carry around without fingerprinting the screen

Yeah i love the size of the kindle 2 so much that I wouldnt want to make it any bigger. Its so nice to curl up in bed and hold something so light and small. I feel like the case make it an inch wider - but maybe its just the pic.

SillyGirl, I've held the Kindle 2, but not this case. The Kindle 2 is already so thin, I don't know if a case would make it feel unnecessarily big — depends on you, I guess!

I am torn. Have you held it in person geek? I wanted to buy it when i first saw it, but I am nervous that it is unnecessarily big and that i would prefer just one of those thin rubber skins.
