Please read the other threads about the company "Boxwave" to get a better understanding of why you may not want to shop from them.
Boxwave is known for atrocious shipping. They'll send cables, capacitive pens, and other small merchandise in regular envelopes that they seal with one piece of tape (so the flaps will stay open on either side). If you monitor their Amazon reviews, you can often see negative reviews pop up about their shipping method, but it'll be taken down after one or two days because of some clause in Amazon's policy that states that customers need to review the item, not the shipping method. All negative comments about shipping are removed from all of their products on their storefront. Most of their products do not come with packaging - if it's a Boxwave name-brand product, it'll either have no packaging or come in a zip-lock bag or plastic snack bag of varying sizes.
Well, just to balance out the negative, I'd like to add my experience. I bought three of these Boxwave cases a couple of weeks ago to put on some Kindle Fires that I got my kids for their birthdays. For the price, I'm happy with them. The packaging was fine for what it was. They came in padded envelopes, inside another sealed plastic bag, with a styrofoam piece inside the case to keep its shape.
As far as the product goes, it fits the Kindle Fire perfectly. I'm not a big fan of only having elastic straps on the corners to hold it in place, and my son actually had his Kindle fall out once. I rectified it by adding a strip of adhesive velcro on the back of the Kindle and now it's fine. Holding it in by the corners only does give you the advantage of being able to easily touch all the way to the edge of the screen, as compared to some other cases that make it more difficult. As far as the colors/styles go, the pink satin and stealth fiber are both pretty nice but the sienna leather is too smooth and slippery for my tastes. All in all, I found these to be pretty decent for the low price.
