      Great case if you're looking for something low profile that will protect from bumps and scuffs. Probably won't protect too much from drops, but in my experience a case that protects from drops is no longer a daily case for me because it will add too much bulk. I don't work/use the N7 in a construction environment.Pros- Very low profile. Probably the slimmest case that offers screen protection and is of acceptable quality (compared to low budget cases found on @).- Good coverage. N7 is not exposed anywhere when case is closed except where neccessary (mic, speaker, headphone jack and usb port).- Easy to clean.- Easy to handle; Feels like a book. Other cases feel clumsy when cover is folded back due to their thicker covers.Cons- No magnet for "smart cover" feature (although you can add it with a magnet and a steel shim).- Finding a store that has one in stock- Buttons are harder to actuate- A little on the heavy side at 130g (approx .25 lbs). I may "perforate" the back to reduce weight.- Nothing to hold cover closed (Doesn't bother me, but may be of concern to others.)

      This is a very basic cover/case for the Google Nexus 7, the one adveristed, but seldom in stock on the Google Play website, at least in Canada. It fits the tablet perfectly, though the cover is softer than I might have imagined and it feels a little flimsy. It would be nice if it had a magnetic edge to hold it closed, and to shut down the tablet at the same time. Honestly, I bought it because it was the same case they were selling at Google. It does the job but I suspect there are better cases for the same price.

        This cover looks great, helps protect the screen (when the cover is closed), as well as the body of the Nexus 7, and makes the tablet even easier to grip. Made a great addition to a great birthday present for my son, and was, of course, offered at a good price and shipped quickly by B&H.

        Fits the Nexus 7 well, protects it effectively too. Only complaint is the front cover flap doesn't fold too comfortably behind the device, it sticks out a little more than expected.

          Comments about ASUS Google Nexus 7 Travel Cover (Dark Gray):

          I use my nexus 7 mainly for school and around the house, so I wanted a simple cover for it so it wouldn't get scratched up in my bag. As a simple cover it works great. As for a stand to watch movies hands-free, not so much. Then again, its not advertised as such. The only minor flaw I am noticing so far though, is that the screen can still be touched through the outer cover while powered on. Therefore, if you are carrying your n7 without putting it in standby first, you may open it up to see that you've also opened a few different apps or pages on accident. Also, it would be nice if the front cover had some sort of magnet to keep it closed without opening when shifted. Beside those minor factors, it's a simple, slick cover that fits and looks great on any nexus 7.

            Comments about ASUS Google Nexus 7 Travel Cover (Dark Gray):

            This cover works very well. I didn't want a cover that would help the Nexus 7 stand, just one for travel. It's durable, it fits the tablet perfectly, and it adds very little extra bulk. I like the texture on the exterior as it provides a little extra traction.

            I've discovered one downside, and that is that it's not comfortable when you use the Nexus 7 in its horizontal orientation with the cover on. The front cover just feels awkward. Another potential downside is the part where the cover folds feel a little flimsy, so hopefully it will hold up over time.

              Although it says something like "travel cover", I use it all the time to protect my device. It is not as good as Apple's Smart Cover, as it doesn't turn it on/off.

                    I like the look and feel.
                    It does everything a basic cover is supposed to do: protect the tablet effectively against shocks and scratches. Fits well, feels comfortable (no hard plastic), thin and lightweight, and leaves all ports, microhone and speaker holes free.
                    It doesn't have a (magnetic) closure and it cannot be used as a tablet stand. The 'hinge' is made of the same polymer as the rest of the cover, so we'll have to see how durable that is over time.

                        Fast operation system, great screen and color reproduction. Very good construction quality and solid feeling with a perfect size that fits in any jacket.

                        Very handy as portfolio. Around 9 hours of battery life is more than enough. Perfect for Skype, Google Maps and to read books.

                        Cons: speakers and camera could be better. It also doesn't read many video types - need an app for that.

                        Great tablet, unbeatable for the price

                        The product is indeed a travel cover, and it is good to have the tablet protected. However, if Google designs it for button pressing and leaves speaker output open, it means they want you to use it as an everyday cover as well.
                        As such, you loose the grabbing ability unless you completely fold back the cover, which is still a bit annoying and not clear how much you can go back and forth without breaking it at the end.
                        On the pro side, at least the cover fits smoothly, and takes out little space, and evenly, on the sides, unlike those covers that cut corners to grab the tablet.

                              This case is perfect. Exactly what I wanted. Thin, rubber, protective and barely adds anything to the profile of the tablet.

                              My only caveat is

                              1) There are no magnets in the cover. I believe this is the standard "Google" case that you can buy from Google directly. Since the tablet has an "auto sleep" function that works with magnets, I thought this cover would have one. It does not, the cover is just a thin piece of rubber/plastic.

                              2) There is no way to lock/latch/tie the cover closed.

                                The Price for this case is not worth what you pay for it.
                                -It offers little to no Protection.
                                -Screen Flap is flimzy and "weak"
                                -Buttons are hard to press, since it it completely covered up.
                                -Does not offer Sleep/Wake Function, or any other functions for that matter
                                -Overall most of the other Covers are better then this.

                                          Comments about ASUS Google Nexus 7 Travel Cover (Dark Gray):

                                          i purchased this product for my Nexus 7.
                                          it really feels cheap. i did not like the color dark grey. Why they do not sell it in black?
                                          it is fragile, the cover will tear off in a few weeks. Big disappointment.
