[prMac.com] San Francisco, CA - WaterField Designs announces a new Large SleeveCase for the Kindle(TM), which holds and protects the Kindle(TM) while in its issued case. Additionally, WaterField Designs now offers a removable Shoulder Strap for the Large and Small SleeveCase for the Kindle(TM) and the Travel Case for the Kindle(TM). SleeveCases for the Kindle(TM), the Travel Case for the Kindle(TM) and the Slip Case for the Kindle(TM) are all custom-fitted to the Amazon Kindle(TM) dimensions. Each offers stylish protection and accessibility.
The Large SleeveCase for the Kindle(TM) protects the Amazon Kindle(TM) with high-grade neoprene; a sturdy, black, ballistic nylon shell; and a lightly padded closing flap. A rear, open-top pocket stows items such as the USB cable and ear buds. A subtle grey-black checked fabric trims the bottom of the case. The Small Sleevcase, designed to hold and protect the Kindle(TM) when it is not in another case, uses the same materials, but also includes a layer of impact resistant plastic to protect the Kindle(TM) screen. Both are now available with an optional, detachable shoulder strap.
The Travel Case for the Kindle(TM) - designed with padded, internal compartments to keep the Kindle(TM), the power adapter, the clip light, and any additional accessories tangle-free and organized - is now available with an optional, removable Shoulder Strap. The water-resistant Travel Case uses self-locking zippers to ensure that contents don't spill out and is available in six vibrant colors.
"Some customers were asking for a larger SleeveCase that would fit the Kindle and their existing read-through case," explained owner, Gary Waterfield. "They also asked for a shoulder strap since many of them like to carry the Kindle around by itself. They told us what functionality they wanted... and we just followed their lead."
WaterField Designs also offers The Slip Case for the Kindle(TM), which sports the same vibrantly colored, water-resistant material on its exterior as the Travel Case; a lightly padded, scratch-free liner; and impact-resistant plastic to protect the screen. Customers can toss the Slip Case, SleeveCase or Travel Cases for the Kindle(TM) into any bag, including the WaterField Designs Cargo, Cozmo, Racer-X, VertiGo, or Sling.
