Anyone who has the fabric kobo Glo Sleepcover, can you give me the dimensions? The kobo website doesn't say, and Indigo gives the dimensions as (unbelievably!!) 1.1 x 5.4 x 9 (in)
Considering the glo specs are 0.39 x 4.5 x 6.2 (in), the extra (almost) 3 inches in length seem a bit much...pictures on the kobo website also seem to indicate the case to be much closer to the size of the device.
So if someone who has one, wouldn't mind measuring it? Inches or cm are both fine.

I have ordered three Kobo touch cases previously and they varied from 7-16 days for delivery (Airmail, Hong Kong to Ontario Canada).

I have ordered 2 Glo cases which were shipped Dec.3rd. (Airmail no tracking). This is the peak holiday shipping time right now though.

Cases received Dec.10th. Seven days from Hong Kong is excellent! Weight of case is 5 ounces, perfect fit and great quality Red & black leather.

I ordered a Runforcovers cover designed for kobo/kindle touch and it fits the Glo surprisingly well. There's also a lot of quirky designs (made to look like book covers)

Despite being slightly big (like 1cm from top and 1cm from bottom, the straps look like they're barely holding onto the device but they are actually really secure (so the device doesn't slide at all!)

The things I dislike are 1/ the slide button is covered 2/ lint gathering on the inside felt (?)

Other than that, I'm happy with it!

Hi all I got my Kobo GLo today.
I bought the Sleep cover with it and yeah it was pretty pricey, but it is good quality and the sleep on cover close feature is handy.
The cover has 4 corner pieces which it slots into leaving lots of room for access to the sdcard slot power and light button.

I figure I use my ereader so much (I also own a Kobo Touch which I've been using for over a year) that it's worth splashing out on a nice cover.

anyone have any experience with this case: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Twill-leather...ht_2127wt_1512


seems like an affordable + functional case, but the adhesive only backing scares me (should it ever become loose)

How do you like this cover? it is indeed a fine looking case.
Does the lid, if you fold it to the back, also have a magnet close option on the back as it folds back?

I actually ordered the red Lux cover. But i think of changing it for the above one because I like it a lot more.

Review of Navitech Brown Bycast Leather Flip Carry Case from Amazon $12.99

Excellent cover, price was very right, very nicely made, fits well, also acts as a sleep cover although the item description doesn't mention it. I had sleep function of Kobo Glo turned off initially; when I initially rec'd the cover and was looking closely at it, I felt a very small round lump on the inside of the cover, I thought, hmmm, wonder if thats a magnet for the sleep cover function. Turned that function on on the Glo, and Voila!, sleep cover works! Sweet.

A good deal, and worth the wait (they were backordered when I placed order) of about a month. Other than that, simple, perfect for designed task, openings placed correctly so can charge and reach the on/off slide switch, the light button, and the uSD card slot. Perfect.

link to cover on Amazon:

I just bought Kobo Glo eReader Black Genuine Leather Case Cover Jacket + Screen Guard from the SkinDigital store.

There's a promo on at the moment of 10% off using coupon code Holiday10.

Also free tracking - normally $2.

So my US $15.99 purchase was $14.39.

It's compulsory to use PayPal - but there is an option for those who don't want to sign in to their Pay Pal account to use it as a 'guest' and also an option not to use their conversion rate (which sucks). I opted to use my credit card company's rate so won't know what it is till I see the bank statement. Doesn't worry me because I know it's a darn lot better than Pay Pal.

Hi everyone,

A new Kobo Glo owner and forum member here!

Just wanted to inquire about whether anybody has used, or even seen, the Glo Leather SleepCover cover:

http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/ereadi...ccessories%3a1

None of the stores in my area seem to carry it, and I'm hesitant to purchase it online without actually seeing it in person. Doesn't help that there aren't many pics or reviews posted online either.

Any help would be great. Thanks!
