Help protect your Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 5, Surface Pro 6, or Surface Pro 7 from scrapes, scuffs, and dreaded corner drops with a protective case! But, which one should you get? The Surface Pro is a super premium device, meaning you're going to want to protect it with the best Surface Pro 7 cases, as any small drop or knock could damage your device. Here's our roundup of the best cases for Surface Pro devices that are compatible with the Surface Pro 4, right the way through to the Surface Pro 7+.
This durable case is made of non-slip grip material that snaps tightly around your Pro, and despite its ruggedness, it 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. If you're often taking your PC into the field, this is the best Pro case for the job.
This case offers rugged protection with padded corners for extra drop protection, but you don't sacrifice the Surface Pro's built-in kickstand functionality. A Surface Pen holder keeps it clipped to the case when not in use, and a hand strap allows for easy carrying. This is an excellent case if you're handing your Pro over to the kids.
The Fintie Folio is a low-cost option with 25 styles from which to choose and a design that allows you to use the kickstand at will. The synthetic leather exterior holds up to wear, all ports remain open, and a built-in Surface Pen holder keeps it in place. You can close it up around your Pro with a Type Cover attached, and a magnetic flap keeps everything inside.
The composition leather exterior is available in three different colors — brown, black, and purple — and there's some fancy stitching along the top for a premium look. All ports remain open, and there's a Surface Pen holder, so you don't leave it behind. If you'd like a refined design that can fit in anywhere, this is it.
The best Surface Pro cases for a rugged lifestyle don't have to be super expensive. MoKo's rugged cases start at a reasonable price and offer good protection against bumps, scratches, and drops. There's a strap to keep the Type Cover closed and in place, and the Pro's kickstand is free to operate. All ports remain open, and there's even a pen holder on the side.
Infiland's case cover combines full-body protection with accommodations for the Pro's kickstand, Surface Pen, and ports. It has a pocket on the back for carrying documents, and it's available in four different colors. This is a great option if you want a full cover with a bit of professional flair.

All of the best Surface Pro case options in this roundup should fit the Surface Pro 7 and the Surface Pro 7 Plus, as well as Pro siblings all the way back to the Pro 4. That's because Microsoft didn't really change the physical dimensions throughout these generations.
Unfortunately, the Surface Pro 8 and new Surface Pro 9 won't fit these cases due to the redesign. If you're searching for a case for your Pro 8 — or really anything to complement it — check out our collection of the best Surface Pro 8 accessories.
The Surface Pro 4, Pro (2017), Pro 6, Pro 7, and Pro 7 Plus are some of the best Windows laptops out there, and their premium nature means they should be well looked after. Whether it comes down to adding rugged protection, a bit (or a lot) of style, or an executive look, you should find what you need.
If you're planning on taking your Surface Pro with you into the field, the UAG Metropolis is likely your best bet for a rugged case if you don't mind losing the use of the Pro's kickstand. In contrast, Kensington's Blackbelt 2nd Degree case is a better rugged fit if you want to keep the kickstand's mobility intact. Both of these cases are extra tough and protect against significant bumps and scratches, so you'll have to worry less about damaging your expensive PC.

On the other hand, if you're mostly taking your Surface Pro to a coffee shop or back and forth from the office, ProCase's Premium Folio is probably a better fit. It's made from composition leather available in a few different colors. It lets you use the kickstand at different angles, and it has the right cutouts for sensors and cameras. It won't provide as much protection as the rugged options, but it will still help with bumps and scratches that come with regular use.
