Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Perfect Yet Imperfect Cover for the Forma This custom cover for the Kobo Forma has a number of practical and thoughtful touches, but missed several key opportunities to make it THE choice cover for the device. The Good: Fit: This cover is built specifically for the Forma. Therefore, the device will fit securely and snugly. Users will also appreciate the ease and simplicity when using this cover. NOTE: There is a setting (under Energy Saving and Privacy) in the Forma to wake or place the device to sleep mode when using this cover. Feel: The material used is soft to touch and overall, a pleasure to hold. The inside of the cover is made of felt-like material. I wish that this was thicker which would increase the plushness and tactile pleasure when holding the device. Origami-inspired stand: This is one of the strongest positive point for this cover. It was an inspired idea to combine a cover that can be folded into a stand in both the portrait and landscape mode. This feature allows the device to become hands-free and is a useful option especially to users who may find the weight of holding the device with one hand tiring. The Bad: Price: At $59.99 CAN plus taxes, this is an expensive accessory for one specific device. While it is a good product, the quality of the material does not warrant such a steep price. The felt-like material inside the cover also absorbs your hand's natural oils so be careful especially if you use hand cream, oil, ointments etc. Not Waterproof: I would gladly pay the steep price if this cover is waterproof just like the device it was created to protect. I had a water pack that leaked in my bag and this cover almost did not survive but my Forma had no problems which is quite ironic. Added weight: If you are considering this cover, please note that it does add weight, changing the feel of the device and the reading experience. While the added weight is not significant, it is enough of a contrast because the Forma is light as air on its own. In addition, the weight of the device causes the stand to sag a little which might annoy more discerning readers. Power Button Exposed: The way this cover is designed, the power button is completely exposed which is less than ideal when you place it inside a bag. I learned this hard way when I charged my Forma before a 10 hour flight and when I placed it inside my backpack, the button must have pressed against another item because it was completely dead when I took it out during the flight. Along with the lack of waterproof treatment, these are two design flaws that are significant enough to prevent this product from receiving a recommendation.
