Heavy-duty protection: UAG MetropolisEditor's pick
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, ice, plyo ice, or cobalt color finishes. If you're often taking your Pro into the field, this case will pay off.
Keep the kickstand free: Kensington Blackbelt 2nd Degree case
The Blackbelt 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.
Lightweight protection: 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 works of art.
Tons of styles: Fintie Folio
The Fintie Folio is a low-cost option with 25 styles to choose from 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.
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 nine different colors and styles. 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.
If we're making some suggestions
These are the best cases we've found for the Pro 4, Pro (2017), Pro 6, Pro 7, and Pro 7 Plus, some of the best Windows laptop options out there. 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.
