Whether you listened to us or picked it up yourself, you’re rocking the best ebook reader out there: the Kindle Paperwhite. How about protecting it with a cool and useful case? We’ve listed the best.
We think accidents happen. Sure, you plan to take care of your Kindle Paperwhite, but it’s easy to accidentally drop it, or just scratch it from a little rough handling. You don’t want that to happen, so these cases will work around that somewhat. In addition, we appreciate that you want your eBook reader to look reasonably stylish, so we’ve tried to pick out cases that look good too. Just because you’re not reading a physical book doesn’t mean you’re giving up the character book covers anyway.
Update, 4/4/22: Guaranteed content and links still good. All images updated. New choices added for the best overall, the best grip and durability and the best hands-free case.
Best Overall: CoBak Kindle Paperwhite Smart Case
If you only buy one Kindle Paperwhite case, make it the CoBak Kindle Paperwhite case. It’s stylish, practical and affordable. It fits both the new Paperwhite and 11th-generation Paperwhite Signature Edition, which can come in handy if you’re rocking an older version and looking to upgrade soon.
The cover wraps around your Kindle with a magnetic closure, ensuring the cover closes securely every time, protecting every corner. In addition, simply open it and your device wakes up from its slumber. The case weighs just a few grams, so this won’t add bulk or weight to your reading session or your bag.
The exterior is made of waterproof PU leather, while the interior features a scratch-resistant microfiber design. And bonus: there are 17 cool colors and designs, so it’s easy to find one that suits your taste. Simply put, you’re protected (and at a great price).
Best for Simple Style: Amazon Paperwhite Leather Case
Amazon’s very own Paperwhite leather case is easily the most stylish and professional-looking case out there. Like CoBack’s case (above), it has a magnetic closure that keeps your Kindle safe and can also wake it up when you need it. This case works for Paperwhite generations prior to 2018; Amazon is also making an almost identical case for the 11th-generation Paperwhite 2021.
Where the Amazon Paperwhite Leather Case stands out is its design. It is made of premium natural leather so it obviously looks classy and expensive which it really is at this price. It’s also available in four great shades – Fuschia, Persimmon and Royal Purple – but we prefer the professional shades of Onyx Black. If you want a leather bag that shines and takes on a patina like a classic book cover, Amazon also has a brown-only premium leather model that will let you walk a little more, but age beautifully.

Best for Grip and Durability: TiMOVO Clear Case
If you tend to drop or throw your Kindle around, you need a sturdy case that can keep up with your adventures. The TiMOVO Clear Case is super durable and stands out in a sea of matte “protective” cases. It is also a good choice for anyone who prefers a clear case. It is sturdy and does not cover the screen, but usually protects well against a strange drop or bump.
Due to the precise fit, the case is only compatible with the 11th generation version of the Kindle Paperwhite and the Paperwhite Signature Edition. A rubberized texture allows you to hold the case securely without the risk of it slipping, and it has four thickened corners for extra protection. It is made of soft TPU material and is also scratch resistant.

Best Waterproof Option: WALNEW Waterproof Case
While the WALNEW Waterproof Case is not the most attractive case in our range, it is very effective in protecting your Kindle Paperwhite from water damage. It is a case made of durable PVC so you can see through it for easy viewing on the screen. Three ziplock strips in the opening plus a roll-and-pinch design help keep things dry inside. There is also a drawstring if you want to tie it to yourself, for example during a nap on the beach or by the pool.
In the end it’s just a nice plastic bag, but a good one. It’s also a small price to pay for protecting your beloved Kindle, and it’s compatible with other devices, such as iPads and smartphones, thanks to its loose, universal design.

Best Hands-Free Case: Moko Slim Stand Case
A few different stands offer a basic stand here, but none can really compete with the MoKo Slim Stand Case. This is a great solution for those times when you need to rest your Kindle upstairs. You’ll always have a clear view of what you’re reading without the risk of the Kindle sliding down.
In addition to the all-important stand, the MoKo Slim Stand Case offers an extra layer of protection and a PU leather interior for extra scratch resistance. It looks cool too, with a variety of different colors to choose from, including the Blue Ink model (pictured above), one that looks like the classic Composition notebook, several floral options, and one that resembles a leather-bound book.

Cutest Gift Idea: Husiru Painting Case
Not so into things like waterproofing, super grippy backing or real leather, but want something super cute and perfect for a gift? The Huasiru Painting Case is ideal for this. Available in over two dozen different patterns and colors, there’s an eye-catching design for everyone.
Made from durable synthetic leather, there’s an element of protection here with a soft interior that further protects things, but really, this is a case that’s all about looks. As a nice change from the more utilitarian-looking fare, it’s a great choice for making your Kindle look more charming.
