Microsoft's Surface Pro is quite the 2-in-1 device, designed for life on the move. To help protect it from scrapes, scuffs, and dreaded drops, consider grabbing one of these great cases. All cases in this roundup will fit both the fifth-generation Surface Pro (2017) and the latest Surface Pro 6.

Heavy-duty protection

UAG Metropolis

It's made of non-slip grip material that snaps tightly around your Pro, and despite its ruggedness doesn't add a lot of weight. A kickstand on the back can be used in five different positions, and it's available in black or cobalt color finishes.

Keep the kickstand free

Kensington Blackbelt 2nd Degree

The Blackbelt case offers rugged protection with padded corners for extra drop protection, but you don't sacrifice the functionality of the Surface Pro's built-in kickstand. A Surface Pen holder keeps it clipped to the case when not in use, and a handstrap allows for easy carrying.

For the café crowd

ProCase Premium Folio

The composition leather exterior is available in three different colors — brown, black, and purple — and the interior is soft and won't scratch your device. All ports remain open, and there's a Surface Pen holder, so you don't leave it behind.

17 styles

MoKo Smart Shell

This case wraps around your Pro and latches with a magnet, leaving all ports open and full functionality of the kickstand intact. The outside is PU leather that keeps scratches and smudges off your device, and the inside is a soft microfiber. Styles range from solid colors to famous works of art.

Budget style

Fintie Folio

The Fintie Folio is a low-cost option with 15 designs to choose from and a stand that sits at two different angles. The synthetic leather exterior holds up to wear, all ports remain open, and a built-in Surface Pen holder keeps it in place.

Executive look

ESR Intelligent Series

This synthetic leather case is available in black, blue, and brown colors, and the inside has a microfiber finish to keep your device from scratching. The case's design lets you adjust the Surface Pro's kickstand how you'd like, and a magnetic buckle keeps everything in place.

Extra drop protection

Incipio Octane Pure

Around the corners of this case are thick bumpers of TPU plastic, which will absorb impact if you accidentally drop your device. All ports remain open, and the entire back of your Surface Pro is covered, protecting it from scratches when carrying it around in a bag, but you keep full kickstand functionality.

It means business

Infiland multi-angle case

This case leaves all ports and your camera open and covers everything else — Type Cover included — with a sharp finish available in five different colors. The stand can be propped up at two different angles, there's a Surface Pen holder on the side, and a pocket on the back fits your smaller accessories. A lifetime warranty rounds things out.

Protection matters

These are the best cases we've found for the Surface Pro, whether it comes down to adding rugged protection, a bit (or a lot) of style, or an executive look. If we're making a suggestion, the UAG Metropolis is likely your best bet for a rugged case if you don't mind losing use of the Pro's kickstand, while Kensington's Blackbelt case is a better rugged fit if you want to keep the kickstand's mobility intact.
