Default KeviKev Case Review

I just received a new version of the Kevi case. This one is supposed to be a tighter fit and he has replaced the cardboard inserts with a plastic one.

While the ports for charging are not exposed and you need to open the case for charging, this really works for me.

I travel a lot and tend to close the case and keep my headphones on listening to music. having the audio jack exposed is more important since I can slide the xoom on its side and keep it next to my armrest while sleeping. I dont have to worry about someone taking it while asleep. The choice of leather is of good quality as well. Stitching is clean and consistent and it feels and looks like a high end day planner.

Another area of appreciation is the fact that they are improving the case and he understands the importance of customer service.

I received frequent updates from kevin on the status of the case during weekends and he replied to my emails late at night. This was due to the delay of the order. He sent me an email letting me know that he was making changes to the case, what they were and would let me know when it shipped. He followed up on all areas.

Good product + Good customer communication = great experience. I will by again from him.

I would like to know the answer to this as well. I want to return mine because it's so loose.

i ordered one and got it last week, i dont know what material he used but it works very well. the charge port access was my only complaint but its really no big deal. no problems with actual use of the xoom while in the case. There might be some little conflict with the FFC if you dont have the xoom in the case securely but i didnt seem to have issues with my use

I don't think its a defect. He is just improving the product just like any other manufacturer. So its unlikely that he would offer a refund or exchange. All case providers do this. I have seen this done with Sena Cases as well as several others.

What he told me is that the material inside the case has been changed to provide a tighter fit and for it to be sturdier. I dont have an older one to refrence. I will post some close up shots so that you can judge it.

Looks nice if I wanted a slim case that would definitely be my choice.
