Found this on ebay:

Pretty similar to Case Crown.

Hey, nice find! I like the look of the hemp cases... very tempting if I didn't have a CaseCrown on it's way to me already.

well found Joywalker, I do like that case - it is black on the inside and colour on the outside, just what I was looking for, but alas, I've already ordered an all-black Casecrown

I paid $30 for the other cover I was using. Hopefully I can use it for another eReader in the near future. Maybe the upcoming touch Kindle will fit it.
I went back to using my original case (with the 4 straps). Couldn't read comfortably with the Case Crown (didn't feel natural) and found the flap/clasp distracting (just dangling). Always took the Kobo out when reading. I prefer touching the front of the Kobo itself (Black) and not the Case Crown material. With my original cover I can do that. Of course there's the bigger footprint and the encumbered power switch. *sigh* But I'm happy when reading.

That's a shame! I found folding the clasp back underneath worked for me otherwise its just like holding a book (remember those? ) Unlike a book you only read one side and that does make the front cover feel like it is a nuisance but I'm getting used to that.

I stuffed mine into the sleeve that came with my Sony PRS-300. It's a little snug but it works.

Interestin that you've dropped the Case Crown. I wasn't a fan of the heavy textured look of the case.

I think I'd like a Moleskin style elastic more (than a flap/clasp). I still haven't ordered a case as I keep waiting for some other options but I've yet to see many . The Cover-up/ucover (http://www.ucover.co/Product_Info.asp?productID=730) case seem ok. Be curious to hear some first hand feedback on these. It's curious that some posts on ebay list these as genuine leather, and others faux.

I like the case you linked to. The three storage card slots are overkill though. I can't get past looking at those. It looks like it was made for the Sony 600/650 because those models use two different size memory cards (Memory Stick and SD), plus a stylus (stylus holder shown in other photos).

I've got a cover from etsy (fabric, not leather, but that's what I like). Perhaps a bit wide, but it is nice.

@SCION: I think you might be right (re: it being a repurposed SONY eReader Case). Still a nice way to get to market quickly I guess (& move old stock), and it does look ok/seem to hold the Kobo Touch well (not covering access to the buttons or charging port.

@Terisa de morgan: nice (if a little girly for me :-) )... the front of the cover looks really big in that 2nd photo though. Is it well reinforced inside? Who (on Etsy) did you get this from? My wife might be interested in a similar case.

Oberon Design has come up with covers for the Nook Touch. I recently sent them an email asking if they'd come up with a Kobo Touch version. Still no answer.

http://www.oberondesign.com/nook.php

I'm wondering if the Nook Touch cover would fit the Kobo Touch cover. The dimensions compared are :

KT 4.5, 6.5, 0.40
NT 5.0, 6.5, 0.47

Do you think it would fit my Kobo? These cases are expensive at $70! But they look oh so nice!!!

I inquired about the same thing and received a response. There's concern that the case would be too wide, given the NOOK is 5.0 and the Kobo 4.5. The person stated they haven't tried a Kobo.

Well, I'm such a girly, what can i do? The front cover is around 1 cm wider than Kobo Touch, I think it's the same size for Kobo and Nook Touch, but no so big. And not very strong reinforced (not rigid but strong material), which it is OK for me (I don't like a lot hard covers). The shop is this:

That was what I thought also (a little loose). Somewhat $ to experiment with also. Though if you (EMG) want to get one a let us know that would be great? :-)

@Terisa de morgan: Cheers. You think it is just a singe sheet of card in the cover? My wife might need something a little more durable for when she chucks in the bag with all he other odds and ends. Some cool designs though.

@molman, yes, I think it is only a sheet of card. It's OK for me because my bags are not very big but, perhaps, in a bigger big she needs something stronger. And yes, the designs are cool.
