Cover-Up Hemp Cases (Aura HD)

Does anyone have any first hand experience with the Hemp cases from Cover-Up? The below link is what may be my ideal case -- except the only review I can find mentions that the Aura HD is "upside down" when the case is opened -- surely that can't be the case, right? From the pictures, it certainly isn't!

I'd also be EXTREMELY interested in any one else's impressions of the Cover-Up cases, particularly if they've had one in hand.

If not, I'm probably gonna just go for one of the black back enclosure PU covers.

Looks nice. I'd be tempted, but I dislike pockets on the inside flap.

The upside down comment is probably due to the fact the case closure flap snaps on the back. The reviewer is likely used to cases where the closure is on the front, and oriented the case the wrong way before opening.

exactly. at the start it can be a little tedious but it's not really a problem.

Thanks a ton -- that info really helps.

One last question if I can -- is it constructed to totally fold flat against the back when opened? I like to hold the aura hd one handed (big hands), and want to make sure it lies flat and isn't flexing the "binding" or anything.

i'm not really used to read one-handed with the cover folded.
i usually leave it alone since it's not really a problem.

tried right now to fold it. it something like 0,5cm wider.

Thanks a ton for going out of your way and for the photo -- that was EXACTLY the shot I was looking for. I really appreciate it!

Seems like a cover-up hemp case is the case for me.

Well, I've used mine for 2 years. It's gotten a bit faded with time but it's still well worth the price.
