Protect your Surface Pro 4 from damage with one of these awesome cases.
The Surface Pro 4 is not a cheap piece of equipment. That magnesium-alloy case is strong and light, but it's also easily scratched and dented. So you might want to consider a case to keep it protected.
Here are some of our favorites.
Updated March 2, 2017: We didn't add anything new, because these are still the best cases for your Surface Pro 4.
Waterfield Designs Sleevecase
Waterfield Designs make some great looking, highly durable bags and cases for many devices, and the Surface Pro 4 is no exception. Your expensive equipment will be protected by soft and cushioning neoprene, with either a ballistic nylon or waxed canvas shell.
It's also got a commodious rear pocket for your non-digital paperwork and a pen loop so you never misplace your Surface Pen. Throw in some customizable options like having it horizontally or vertically oriented and whether you want a shoulder strap or not, and you'll have the perfect case for you.
Fintie PU leather folio
For the business professional, the Fintie PU leather folio is the utmost in sophistication for holding onto and protecting your Surface Pro 4. It's specifically designed for the Surface Pro 4 and fits like a glove.
If business isn't your thang and you just want a nice-looking leather folio, it comes in 11 colors and patterns. (Our favorite is the All Nighter).
You get a handy stylus loop to hold onto your Surface Pen and the folio is keyboard-friendly, folding back into a convenient stand.
ProCase tablet sleeve
ProCase's sleeve is just this side of being a laptop bag. It zips around your Surface Pro 4 and protects it from scratches with its soft interior and durable, almost denim-like exterior, and it has a convenient handle so you can grab it and quickly get going.
This sleeve features an external zip-up compartment for books or adapters or whatever you need to carry, though space is limited, keeping in line with the fact that this is only a sleeve and not a full-on laptop bag.
ProCase's sleeve comes in dark gray with orange trim, light gray with a mint trim, and teal with orange trim. (The last option is borderline hideous.)
rooCase Dual View
rooCase's Dual View case is a neat option that has a detachable inner sleeve that can be reattached in landscape or portrait orientation. The one glaring downfall of this case is it's incompatibility with the Type Cover, since the port is covered by the sleeve. If you don't use a keyboard with your Surface Pro, then no worries.
There are a couple handy slots on the inside for pens or Surface Pens and there are three slots for cards if you don't feel like carrying a wallet. You get scratch protection on the outside, thanks to durable synthetic leather, and you get scratch protection on the inside, thanks to soft microfiber.
Again, if you rely on a Type Cover or another keyboard, you're out of luck with this case. But if you prefer to use your Surface Pro 4 as more of a tablet, then have at 'er.
Kensington Black Belt 2nd Degree
They might have gone a little overboard when naming this one, but that doesn't make it any less of an excellent heavy duty option for your Surface Pro 4. It meets military drop-test standards, so your tablet won't be horribly disfigured in the event of a short drop.
The Black Belt's hard polycarbonate design will protect your Surface Pro 4 from bumps and scratches, so you can feel safe tossing it in your backpack or laptop bag, knowing it'll be safe and sound.
The flip-to-open kickstand on the back is convenient and practical, so you can attach your Type Cover and have it secured in place by the built-in strap. All of your ports and buttons are totally accessible, and your Surface Pen is held firmly in place by the holder on the side of the case.
If you need a functional, rugged case that'll go anywhere with you, go with the Black Belt.
Urban Armor Gear Feather-Light composite
Urban Armor Gear (UAG) makes tough cases that are built to protect your devices from some harsh stuff. If the main reason you want a case for your Surface Pro 4 is protection, the Feather-Light composite is the right choice for you.
Made with an aluminum exterior and a Frogskin soft core, this case prevents damage not only from scuffs and scrapes but also from impacte, since it's been military drop-tested and meets standards.
It is compatible with the Type Cover keyboards, and its kickstand lets you position your device at five different angles.
If you're looking for a truly protective and practical case and don't mind a little bulk, pick up a UAG case.
