The Surface Go was designed from the start to be easily carried with you no matter where you go, including coffee shops, campuses, and boardrooms. For those looking at sprucing up their Go with a stylish leather case — perfect not only for protection but for upping your professional game — we've put together a collection of the best options available now.
Considering you get a built-in Bluetooth keyboard with this PU leather case, the price seems far more reasonable if you don't already have a Type Cover. The thin cover protects against scratches and bumps, cutouts keep camera and sensors uncovered, and a kickstand allows you to prop up the Go at a proper typing angle.
This affordable sleeve case is made from synthetic leather for a natural look, and it has a microfiber lining on the inside to keep from scratching your Go. A pen holder keeps your Surface Pen nearby, a magnetic flap holds everything in place, and it's available in four different colors to match your style.
Brydge's zippered folio is handmade from 100 percent full-grain leather for a premium look and feel, and inside it has a velour lining to avoid scratching your Go. The zipper extends around the top and side for a wider opening, and there's even a slim pocket on the outside for your smaller accessories.
This portfolio is made from genuine leather and is cut out for anyone who'd like to carry around a single case with everything in it. Inside are pen loops, business card slots, a phone sleeve, myriad zippered pockets, a notepad, and a holder for your Surface Go. A sturdy zipper runs around three sides, allowing you to open it up like a book for easy access.
Use the Go's kickstand
Unlike a lot of other cases, Ztotop's affordable option allows you to use the built-in Go kickstand to get the right angle. It's made from PU leather and is available in four different colors, cutouts leave your camera and sensors intact, and a pen loop on the side helps ensure your Surface Pen sticks with you.
Noreve's cases are available in a number of different leathers, including PU, smooth, grained, patent, Saffiano, and more. Each material is also available in a bunch of different colors, so you can truly get a case you want. Cases are compatible with the Type Cover, each has a Surface Pen holder, and a kickstand on the back keeps it propped up.
Cover with handle
These handmade leather covers don't constitute a full case, but they're certainly unique. They stick onto the back of your Go with an adhesive that won't leave a residue when removed, and they have cutouts for the Windows logo and Go cameras. A leather handle sits in the middle, giving you a sturdy spot to hold onto your tablet with one hand.
