Unofficial cover kobo sage?

Has anyone seen third-party cases for sale for the kobo sage? the official is very expensive

Only pouch covers on etsy so far. I’d bet by mid November or the end of November we’ll see some from other companies.

I’ve already bought a cheap sleeve. But I then did weaken and buy the official cover. I’d rather have had a third party case from Kwmobile, like all my other kobo’s, but I’m more worried about not having a case.

I wouldn't buy a sleeve alone. I feel a case will be more protective of the screen for potential hits / cracks

You could check with Gecko to see if they are in the works? I've bought cheap covers on ebay etc before, but keep coming back to Gecko Slimfits.

Last time I bought a Gecko case for my H2O, the magnets were misaligned. I did end up sending it back.

Last time I bought a Geckocover for my Aura One, I ended up loving it. And kept it. 😉

Noreve, a company in France, produces high-priced [and worth it], premium cases for a number of ereaders (and other products). The cases for the two new Kobos are not yet available, but will be. They offer free shipping.

The cases are superb - simply the best.

I love the Noreve quality, the cover I order for my Nook was and still is superb, but they are too bulky for me.

I am not a fan of Noreve cases.

Yes, Noreve uses premium materials (real leather) and are hand-made, which explains the heavy price-tag.

But the material is pretty much the only good quality.

On the other hand the leather also makes these cases extremely heavy. (They easily weigh 100g+ more then a regular cover.) Because they are hand-made, they don't always fit perfectly. And most of them are missing features, like a sleep-wake funktion, holding magnets, etc.

So sure, if you absolutely must have a real-leather case at any price, then there is not really an alternative. But these are far from beeing "the best" cases, you could buy.

So it is, I looked through a couple of covers and did not see the presence of a magnets. The covers are very pretentious and beautiful, but in fact - uncomfortable.
They have been making covers for Kobo for seven or eight years, and still have not bothered to add at least a sleep function... I'm at a loss.

Which sleeve did you order? Like you, waiting on kwmobile or some other 3rd party (had a MoKo cover for my aura one) cover.
