Sleepcover for Kobo Glo

Am thinking about purchasing Kobo Glo along with official Kobo sleepcover for it. The question I have is, can you flip the front of the cover back 180 degrees to have it behind the reader when reading or do you always have to have it open like a regular book?

I had the official sleepcover (fabric) and it was just alright for me. It did fold back. I passed it on in favour of a Gecko Slimfit, which I vastly prefer. It's more comfortable in the hand, comes in better colours, and is quite a bit smaller, which means it now fits conveniently in a particular handbag pocket of mine.

It's a goof purchase. Indeed, you can flip back the front cover as you ask. Is lighter and hard enough to protect the screen.

I did get my Glo with the black leather-like sleepcover and do like it a lot. I love the autosleep function. My wife got the gray fabric one.

That looks like a great cover, but at a conversion price of $38.41 it's a bit steep in price.

It's moderately expensive from here too - but then, the official cover is $40 retail (or $45 if you shop the more expensive shops). I figure it was worth not compromising for something I use so often.

It does indeed flip back. I recommend the grey cover, because it is fabric; my friend has the black one which is more of a vinyl, and we both agree it's less comfortable to hold, and also can get scratched. Very pleased with this cover:
