30 Of The Best Kindle Skins

Kindle skins have the most diverse mix of patterns and color arrangements hands down. You can even have skins custom made with an image or design of your choice. Instead of reviewing one skin at a time I felt it would be more valuable (if you think I am wrong comment below) to make a list of Kindle skins. First let me define what is a Kindle skin then I’ll get into the list!

[Update 1] After some requests from you the readers and the popularity this post had the first go around, I’ve updated the list with even more Kindle skins. So now there are 30 Kindle skins in all. With this update I’ve added five Kindle Fire skins, Kindle Touch skins, and Kindle 4 skins. I hope you find this helpful and if you have any Kindle skins to suggest please leave them in the comments or contact me directly.

[Update 2] Thanks everyone again for the kind emails I’ve gotten about this Kindle skin list. Another question I’ve received quite a few times is:

Where can I buy a Kindle skin aside from Amazon?

Well to answer this question, I’d suggest SkinIt. Not only are there a ton of Kindle skin designs to choose from, but you can also design your own!

The design process is fairly simple. Pick your model of Kindle. From there you’ll see a straight forward design screen where you can add your own images or design your own cover by picking text, shapes, colors, etc.

What Is A Kindle Skin Cover?

Around the gadget world there are essentially 2 types of covers that are reffered to as skin covers:

1. Vinyl/Plastic Skins- Which are made of vinyl (duh) or plastic (double duh) and are typically a 2 piece “cover”. I use the term cover loosely because skins do not provide heavy-duty protection like most Kindle covers. Skins are only a few millimeters thick and protect from scratches or scrapes primarily. To apply the skin simply line the front and the back piece up correctly and apply. If you mess up the first time (and from my experience you will) simply remove the skin and try again.

2. Rubberized Skins- This type of skin cover more closely resembles a typical 1 piece rubber Kindle cover,  however the term “skin” is used to attest to the cover’s thin design and light weight. Now to install this cover just line the corners up and stretch the material to fit around your Kindle.

Now that we have that out of the way, to make this list easy to under I’m primarily going to focus on the vinyl Kindle skins. Why? Well because vinyl skins provide the most color/design options and what would be the point of listing 15 of the same skin covers right? The list includes 5 skins for the Kindle 2, Kindle 3 and Kindle DX. Skins 1 to 4 will by vinyl skins while the 5th will be a rubberized skin. Enjoy!

Kindle skins are just one of the many options when it comes to Kindle covers. While Kindle skins do not provide incredible protection against drops and falls, many covers can be used with a skin still on the Kindle. Since skins are so think (particularly vinyl), you can use the two together for the best of both worlds- protection and style.
