On the other hand I like how small and light the Kindle is in the original case and I know that the Oberon case add size and weight.
The Oberon will add a LOT of weight, but they are beautiful and offer a lot of protection. The last Oberon I bought was a Mini Sleeve for my Paperwhite, and it's considerably less weight than their full covers. The Mini Sleeves also fit the K-4, and if money is a consideration, they're also a bit cheaper than their full covers.
