Amazon’s Kindle series is the best of all ebook readers out there. But like with any gadget, it isn’t immune from damage. Plus, some people don’t like the soft plastic feel much. Put a cover on it and you’ll protect your Kindle — but it also changes the reading experience.

Amazon makes its own cases for all Kindles, but with that branding comes a higher price tag. It’s unnecessary too since most third-party case makers offer the same or better product for cheaper.

Now, only you can figure out which Kindle is right for you How to Choose the Right Kindle for You in 2016 How to Choose the Right Kindle for You in 2016 There are currently four different Kindle e-Readers available to buy, from the budget Basic model to the pricey Oasis. But which one is right for you? Let us help you decide... Read More . But no matter which one you choose, there are covers and cases available. Whether it’s the basic Kindle or the high-end Oasis, this list will help you pick the perfect case for you.

Sleeve: Bear Motion

Chances are, the only time you really need to protect your Kindle are when it’s sitting in a bag with keys or other sharp objects. The regular Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite don’t need screen protectors, but the e-ink display can get scratched. A sleeve is often the best idea, like Bear Motion’s minimalistic but gorgeous solution. Plus, the sleeve also fits the Paperwhite perfectly.

We like it for the Kindle and we like it for the Kindle Paperwhite. The Omoton Smart Case is the no-nonsense solution for anyone who wants a good case without spending what Amazon asks for its own cases.

Stand Case: Fintie Origami Case

There isn’t much difference between the Moko and the Fintie Origami cases, but it’s far more difficult to find the Moko one for Paperwhites. Again, you can prop up the Kindle Paperwhite in landscape or portrait mode.

Sleeve: Moko Sleeve

You can get a Bear Motion faux leather sleeve for the Paperwhite too. But if you want to add a bit more oomph, try Moko’s felt cover sleeve. It also includes an additional pocket to store your credit card or even your phone. And this also fits the Kindle, the Voyage, and the Oasis.

Kindle Voyage

Flip-Open, Leather-Like: Fintie SmartShell

Unlike the Kindle and the Paperwhite, the Kindle Voyage sports a glass screen. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but every smartphone user knows how a glass can crack when one of a phone’s corners hits the ground. That’s why we prefer the Finite SmartShell for the Voyage, which adds extra protection around the four corners.

Stand Case: Fintie Origami Case

Amazon makes its own origami stand case for the Voyage, but it costs $60, almost the price of buying a Kindle! The Fintie Origami case might not feel as premium, but it’s a quarter of the cost, making it much better value for money.

Sleeve: Belkin Pleat Sleeve

With that glass screen, you might want a little bit more protection. The Belkin Pleat Sleeve is a tried-and-tested solution with plenty of fans. The neoprene case is sturdy, while a reinforced panel protects the screen for added comfort. It’s pretty old, but it works well.

Screen Protector: Ayotu Screen Protector
