Timbuk2 announces ‘Made for Kindle’ products in conjunction with Amazon reveal

timbuk2 announces made for kindle products in conjunction with amazon reveal 3 f ball gunmetal twistedballistic limeaid

With yesterday’s announcement from Amazon of three new Kindles (Fire, Touch, and Touch 3G) as well as a lower-priced black and white Kindle, accessory-maker Timbuk2 has collaborated with the company to offer several new products designed to fit the new and upgraded models. The new offerings include a hardcover reading jacket for the Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Touch 3G, as well as several different sleeve options for those models and some specifically sized for the Kindle Fire. The products are all newly emblazoned with a “Made for Kindle” logo that is a marker of the partnership between Timbuk2 and Amazon.

The Timbuk2 brand originally gained traction for its customizable messenger bags, and the new sleeves and cases for Kindle reflect the same sporty aesthetic. The company uses durable fabrics and all of the “Made for Kindle” products are TSA-approved, which means that you can leave your Kindle in its sleeve or case when you go through security. Did we mention the affordability factor? The Kindle Fire Plush Sleeve (above left, $35) uses high-density memory foam and soft faux-fur lining to keep your Kindle safe and sound, and also features a velcro flap cover design. The Kindle/Kindle Touch Reading Jacket (above right, $40) uses a portfolio design to let you read from your device while it’s still protected by the hard cover and faux-fur lining, and a magnetic closure makes opening and closing the jacket a piece of cake.

Several other design are available, including a slimmer envelope-style case and a zippered ‘slim sleeve.’ All of the brand’s products for Kindle have been updated to fit the new models.
