The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Cooper X Chinee Wetsuit Neoprene Dual Zipper 7” Tablet Sleeve in Pink
The Cooper X Chinee 7” tablet sleeve , great for Nexus 7 & Kindle Fire, is available in an assortment of fresh, vibrant colors, which is nice. Even better is the choice of materials used to keep the device looking lively, as well as the lanyard wrist strap feature for secure hold and carry.
- Vibrant colors
- Lanyard wrist strap
- Dual-zipper closure
- Scratch/water-resistant material
- Single-purpose use
- Not rated against heavy drops/impacts
- Poor lanyard strap design
The Cooper X Chinee tablet sleeve measures 19.5cm x 13.5cm x 1.5cm (approximately 7.7” x 5.3” x .6”). It will fit most any 7” tablet, including popular types that include the Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0, Playbook, Nook Color, HTC Flyer and the new Google Nexus 7. The design is top loading with dual-zippers to maintain secure case closure. The exterior is made of a scratch and water-resistant material, which is similar in look and feel to a diver’s wetsuit. The interior incorporates an anti-static lining that keeps the screen free of dust and lint particles. To top things off, the lanyard wrist strap will provide a secure hold and confident carry.

The lanyard wrist strap is a nice feature that enhances the single-purpose design for basic tablet protection.
No need to stash this sleeve in a large bag. The materials shield the tablet against bumps, dings, dirt, dust, scratches, splash spills and mild wet weather conditions. It’s not rated against heavy drops and impacts, but the lanyard strap should prevent such misfortune.
One loose stitched seam here can cause the sleeve to unravel. Well at least up until the zipper seam, which is well formed along with the lanyard strap. Mostly overall average quality, but something that is built well enough to handle the stress of basic everyday use.
Similar quality can be found for a lower price, but I think its worth paying just a few dollars more here for getting the lanyard strap.
The assortment of fresh, vibrant colors and lanyard strap feature are all nice. But in the end, it's the amazing low price that makes the Cooper X Chinee tablet sleeve a great short to mid-term solution for your 7" device.
