The Kindle Fire is a great little tablet that’s ultraportable and easy to take with you. However, wherever you are, you probably want a case or sleeve to protect your investment and that’s where the Kindle Fire Smart Case by SFBags and Waterfield Designs comes into play. It’s a stylish and protective sleeve that’s designed to defend your Kindle Fire from mishaps. I’ve reviewed plenty of SFBag’s products in the past and always loved them, so does the Smart Case follow suit?
Read on to find out.
The Smart Case is basically a sleeve, but it’s not cheap and flimsy. Instead it’s heavily padded and sturdy enough that it doesn’t flop around or lose it’s shape. The outside portion (orange part) is made of a really strong ballistic nylon which doesn’t fray. The edges along the sides are high quality leather, and the inside is lined with a really soft suede material. This combination of materials ensures that your Kindle Fire will be safe if you throw it in a bag or are carrying it around in your hand. There’s also a small mesh pocket on the back for storing cables or headphones if you need to.
The Kindle Fire itself sits firmly in place when put into the Smart Case. It doesn’t wiggle around or pop out when you shake the case. You really have to apply some force to get it out of the case. It’s one of my favorite parts about the case since I was never worried about my Fire slipping out and potentially getting damaged. The soft suede also means that there isn’t anything that can scratch the display on your Kindle Fire either and if anything it cleans up the screen of any smudges when you slide it in and out of the case.
As usual for SFBags and Waterfield Designs products build quality is extremely high and the case is well put together. There are no points in the case where it’s coming apart or threads fraying. The leather is really smooth and has a nice texture to it. As for the inner lining, it’s as soft as a pillow and even the mesh pocket on the back which may seem like it may stretch has no problems at all.
Overall the Kindle Fire Smart Case is a well-built case that packs a ton of protection for the Kindle Fire. It holds the Fire firmly in place and also packs a lot of style. As usual for SFBags they’ve made a great product that packs protection and style into one cohesive package. If you want a case for your Kindle Fire then I highly recommend the Smart Case.
