It is interesting to note that the Apple iPad has made quite an impact as expected, with many third party manufacturers coming up with a whole lot of accessories for the iPad. Nice to see that M-Edge Accessories has the Amazon Kindle in mind instead, with their new line of Camouflage jackets as well as bags for said device. Both covers and bags will include specialized digital camouflage patterns, hence its name, that were specially designed for three divisions of the armed forcesâ€”Army, Marines, and Navy. Hmmm, guess our men on the battlefront do need to relax as well, reading their favorite ebooks – but certainly not during a special and covert mission, eh?
This new line came about in an effort to help boost troop morale, as M-Edge has partnered with Len Edgerly of The Kindle Chronicles, a weekly podcast concerning the Amazon Kindle, in order to provide a Kindle for an Army Sergeant who is deployed on active duty in Afghanistan. This initiative has seen Len Edgerly and Ken Clark, a former military officer, to co-found E-Books for Troops so that U.S. military personnel deployed overseas will be able to enjoy the wonders of free e-book readers in order to enhance their opportunities for recreation and renewal when on tour. M-Edge has done the needful by donating a camouflage jacket and e-Luminator booklight for each Kindle that is picked up by E-Books for Troops.
We do wonder whether wherever our troops are will be able to download their favorite copies of paperbacks? Whatever the case is, there is a trio of styles from M-Edgeâ€™s existing Sport Line, where it provides the perfect solution for on-the-move readers in rugged environments without having to worry about sand, wear and tear, and screen scratches. Made from durable and easy-to-clean ripstop nylon, a plush grey fleece on the inside helps keep your Kindle well protected. The Leisure Jacket will utilizes a clear vinyl cover which protects Kindleâ€™s screen from sand, dust, and moisture without sacrificing full functionality of the buttons and keyboard. As for the Latitude Jacket, it zips closed thanks to a hidden double zipper. Last but not least is the Journey Bag that functions as a messenger-style bag that is perfectly sized to accommodate the Kindle as well as its accessories when traveling.
