I'm a fan of the Bubble Case for Kindle Fire by HardCandy. It has a lot of what I like to see in a case. At just over two ounces, it doesn't add much to the weight of your device while offering a lot of protection. The case is attractive and its distinctive bubble design on the back has already brought on a number of compliments. At only $40, it isn't going to break your budget. It is easy to install and hard to take off. It made an immediate impression when I received the press release. When the case came in a clam-shell plastic enclosure wrapped in a cardboard box I knew I was in for a treat. The case is very lightweight and thin. At only 2-3/8 ounces (66 grams), I was thankful it wasn't going to add much weight to the Kindle Fire (at 14.6 ounces [413 grams], the Fire is hefty for its size). The black and grey color motif, while attractive is also near impossible to photograph. Overall - recommended.
