Those heading out into the field with their Surface Go, Surface Go 2, or Surface Go 3 under their arm will no doubt want to use a genuinely rugged case, and we've had nothing but success using UAG's Metropolis. 

You might lose function of the built-in Go kickstand, but the overall protection provided is invaluable. It has its own aluminum stand, there's thick corner protection to protect the Go's screen, and it's certified to hit MIL-STD 810G standards for long-lasting durability. Thanks to the Go not changing dimensions or design, this case will work with all versions of the tiny Surface tablet.

For something a bit more stylish and with a bunch of color and design options available, check out Fintie's case, which is also one of the more affordable options in our roundup. Despite its low price, it's made from quality synthetic leather that provides some protection, and you don't lose are buttons or cameras thanks to proper cutouts. There are a bunch of designs to choose from, a Surface Pen holder keeps in close, and you still get to use the Go's built-in kickstand. If you don't plan on putting your Go through a particularly hard experience, this case should fare well and look great at the same time. It works with all versions of the Surface Go.
