I'm so excited for just a few months ago, I finally purchased an Amazon Kindle 3G! I love reading, but hate lugging around a large novel in my purse. Also, the bookshelves in our home are rapidly overflowing and I like knowing that the Kindle will help stop the physical book overload. And who am I kidding?
I love tech gadgets of any kind, which definitely played into my decision to purchase a Kindle. Of course, when buying any electronic device, I always make sure that I have extra money in my budget to also purchase a top-quality protective case so that I can safely use my new gadget absolutely anywhere. M-Edge Accessories has a slew of well-designed and fashionable cases to protect any of today's hottest electronics.
What's more, they even allow you to design your very own e-Reader cover through their MyEdge series of cases. I recently had the chance to create my very own protective jacket for the Amazon Kindle 3 and received a super cool surprise too. Keep reading to learn more!

Latitude Jacket with Theater-Stand 360 for the Kindle 3, which retails for $34.99 with FREE SHIPPING
I was so excited to have the chance to design my very own Kindle 3 protective case via the MyEdge jacket app from M-Edge Accessories. The sky is completely the limit and there are a ton of options available which ensures that your MyEdge will be a complete original! You can select one picture or several pictures and arrange them in any way. It's also super easy to add color and text to your soon-to-be work of art.
For my custom MyEdge case, I decided to use the cover art from my favorite book, "A Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. Then, so it would appear to be a real book, I constructed the mirror image on the back side. Creating the MyEdge case did take a little bit of time on my part, simply because the image used must be fairly close to the actual dimensions of the Kindle jacket itself. Unfortunately, M-Edge doesn't ever tell you what those dimensions are and they don't allow you to change the proportions of your image either. Because of this, creating a custom jacket can take a little longer than need be, simply because finding a properly sized image is rather difficult.
I was shocked by two features of the MyEdge cases. First, I couldn't get over the level of quality of these custom jackets. The cover itself is composed of 100% Scotchgard-treated canvas with a synthetic leather spine and contains a microsuede interior with a document storage pocket. It also has a very secure four-point mounting system to hold your device, and even contains a sewn-in pocket so as to be fully compatible with the M-Edge e-Luminator Booklight (sold separately).
Second, I was thrilled at the value of the MyEdge protective Kindle case. I thought that charging $40 for a custom, quality jacket like this was a bargain, but then I saw that M-Edge offers FREE SHIPPING on any order and even offered a buy one, get one free deal at the time I ordered my case. That means that I was able to choose another fashionable case of equal or lesser value and receive it absolutely FREE! What a steal!
Although I could have selected another MyEdge custom case, I decided to try the Latitude Jacket with Theater-Stand 360 instead. This ZeroChroma Theater-Stand transforms the jacket into a 15-angle, portrait or landscape stand. The molded mounting system securely holds your Kindle and it is also fully compatible with the M-Edge e-Luminator Booklight. There's even a small document pouch on the back of this case and a zippered pouch on the front. I loved the colors and modern-styling of the Latitude jacket and appreciated how it could be folded back completely on itself so that I could hold the Kindle easier and with only one hand.
Protecting any electronic device these days is a must, for all tech gadgets are designed to be super portable. Since these items are usually quite expensive, it's great to find a company that specializes in making top-quality protective cases which are also quite affordable. If you have an iPad or an e-Reader that is crying out for a sophisticated, well-designed protective case, then I highly recommend shopping the large selection from M-Edge Accessories. A custom MyEdge jacket would also make a fabulous holiday present for that special person on your shopping list!

This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
