Your new Surface Pro deserves some protection — get it a case!

For ultimate protection while you're working out in the field, this case from Urban Armor Gear (about $70) is a solid choice.

Pop your Surface Pen into the dedicated holder, and don't worry about the Type Cover not fitting. A kickstand on the back extends to five different positions for easy deployment when you're on the go.
