Kindle Oasis 2017 original case replica

Just saw this, will leave this here:
https://www.amazon.com/Ayotu-Colorfu...asis+2017+case

Someone seems to have figured out that it is a good idea to make a replica of the Amazon case, and one that apparently works well.


UPDATE:
Just received my cover. It looks slightly less high quality than the original cover (I don't like it when the color of the seam does not match the material 100%; but: no branding) but it attaches nicely (not perfectly aligned but close) and, most importantly, holds on to the Oasis when opening the case and when hanging the reader from the cover. This is realized by a non-sticky gel patch on the inside of the back flap that provides additional adhesion.
I would recommend it to anyone who is currently looking for an alternative to the unavailable Amazon cases. Shame there's no high quality tan leather option.

There are reviews dated over a year ago. I wish Amazon would keep reviews linked to exact items.

Yeah, the reviews are confusing to me. I want a cover for my Oasis2 and some of the newer reviews suggest it is the right one, but why are there reviews from 2016. That would suggest for the first Oasis.

I am going to go for it. Just need to decide on a color now.

Assuming its for the right Oasis, its about time. No proper covers for it has been driving me nuts. I don't want a snap in full cover. I want it to come off easy. And not be the suede type. This should be it. Finally.

eta: I went for the cats. Since they don't have a map design. Its pretty and retro. And will be easier to care for than the suede original one I have. That one looks like some cats got at it with all the marks and scratches on it now.

Thanks for posting this johnnyb

I got the white one, will report once it arrives.
(no stand is a bit of a bummer but well... maybe some other manufacturer will figure that out as well)

I never even noticed it doesn't have a stand as I never used that for my original. I only tried it out like once when I got it, but didn't want the flap to get floppy so to speak so didn't do it again. I actually prefer it to be one solid piece so it doesn't just move part of it when opening for reading. Since the fold is just in that direction, it gets annoying at times. So this one is perfect. Assuming everything else on it works fine like the magnets and auto open.

Well yes, there are a gazillion of those type 3rd party out there. But there were none for those of us that want to read without the cover, but put it on between reading sessions. So those covers were not an option for me. Now there is at least one option.

I had a snap in type like that for my first Paperwhite, I could never get that thing off. I have to get the cover off many many times a day so snap in is no good.

Can you prop the device on it's side? I lay on my side at night when reading in bed, and the regular clip in covers allow me to prop the device on the bed. (I don't need to prop it that way on a table top or slippery surface)

I do like the look of the one you bought.

yup, works perfectly...

I really like the look too, looks hardcover-ish without the dust jacket

I'm late to this thread -- and I don't even have an Oasis2 (just an Oasis1) -- but just in case I get moved to buy the newer one*: can this cover fold back and lay flat against the back of the device while reading? I never, never, never do that to a paperback book, but I want my kindle cover to do that, so it will disappear.

*Mother's Day sale, maybe??

Yes, since the magnetic back only extends as far as the hump, it folds perfectly flat, just like the official case did. Likewise, when you fold it back, the magnet holds it there until you are ready to close it. It's extremely thin and has a nice tactile feel to it.

Thanks! I'll drop it into my Wishlist, next to the Oasis2 -- just in case I decide to treat myself.

I bought this cover, and and totally disappointed in it. The magnet doesn't hold it in place, allowing the Oasis to fall. So I used the two sided tape that is on the back inside of the cover. It held for 2 days.

I paid too much for the Oasis to let it fall so easily out of a cover.

I did like the color, I got a blue one, and the texture. But it offers zero protection.
