I love my kindle and will be bringing it to Aruba this year. Any sand problems? a1patti
Hi Patti, my case has a clear front, so that I can read my Kindle while keeping completely protected. Prior to getting my case, I used a zip lock bag. With that being said, I also saw tons of people with their e-readers in the open, so I really don't think the sand posed a problem. I'm just extra careful.
Okay we received our TrendyDigital packs today and they are going to surely be sand and waterproof. For $20 a good investment towards our more expensive kindle investment.
Here is a demo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2j0UHtgL-Rc At 1:51 into the video they show the protected opening with the double zip closure. Further into the demo they show what happens when the case is dropped in water. We surely do not plan on dropping it into the pool, but sitting poolside, say dangling your legs over the side, you never know when there is going to be an accident or even splashing. It will also be good protection when resting the kindle on your lap with a wet bathing suit. I have trashed numerous books in that fashion.

Jeff, I live in Michigan, need I say more?! LOL
We don't have much sun this time of year and I just got it at Christmas.
I will say, I have read it while sitting in my vehicle and as long as I brightened the screen it was fine. Sunshine with sunglasses on might be a different story. Sorry I can't really tell you what you want to know.
