I have the leather Amazon cover and fold it back to read, so I'm holding the cover, not the bare metal. I find that the most comfortable way to read.

Third party covers are ow available. Much cheaper, but no lighter.

I have seen a lot of them and the all did not appeal to me. Most of them look cheap and the all attack more permanently than I would like.
I really hope that one of the third party manufacturers eventually will come up with a nice looking cover with an actually clever design.

That is why I like my official leather cover just fine. I can get the Oasis out of it easy. There is no 3rd party cover like it. I do not read with it in the cover so there are no other options other than the official. I don't have a lot of issues with it overall. So its fine. Its a bit high priced, but then I got to use my points so it didn't hurt as much.

Now that I have used the Oasis for a while, I find it quite comfortable. It took a while to settle on how to hold it. My small hands are doing well with it.

Now that I have used the Oasis for a while, I find it quite comfortable. It took a while to settle on how to hold it. My small hands are doing well with it.
I bought two of the Amazon covers, a leather Merlot, and an Indigo Water-Safe, and returned them when the covers disappeared as the stand function didn't work very well, the magnets on the top right didn't seem to hold. I bitterly regretted my stupidity as my third party cover just wasn't as good. I prefer the buldge flattened out with the Amazon cover, and I liked the ease of removing and replacing the Oasis when reading without a cover.

Anyway, about two weeks after I returned them the a single Merlot cover appeared as a warehouse deal, it was during Black Friday so I they also have 20% off all Amazon covers. I bought it for £33. Once that arrived I had a suspicion it was my returned cover, which was great as for everything else the magnets worked fine. A day after my Merlot cover arrived the Indigo turned up as a warehouse deal, again just the one. I got that for £24. Again I think it's my returned cover, a few things with the box convinced me.

Now I'm not sure what the odds are for buying back your own returns but I consider myself a very lucky woman . And no, this time, they will not be returned.

Third party covers are okay but for the Oasis design I just don't like them.

That would be really funny if you got your own returned covers in the warehouse deal.
I am a bit upset that they went down in price so much right after I got mine, but I guess it is what it is. I don't use it as a stand, but I did try just to see and it works fine on that too. Are the magnets as strong as on the Oasis1? No. But they seem strong enough to stay on for what I need it for. Since I read out of the cover anyway, its just meant to keep it protected while its sat down somewhere. Screen mostly. I am not concerned about anything happen to the back its pretty strong.

Those 3rd party are too hard to get it out every time I pick it up and I like the wedge to read. Which isn't there on the covers either once you fold back the cover to read. But its good to have some options.

I need it to be as light as possible to read with as it is heavier and bigger than the old Oasis. So I could never read with the 3rd party covers as they said to be heavier than the official. That would be uncomfortable for me and my hands.
