So I picked up my Surface Pro 3 this week as a replacement for my Samsung Series 9 laptop. With a couple of discounts, I was able to get the Office/Complete/Sleeve/Keyboard bundle for a bit under $300.

The flap stays closed thanks to a magnet, which also keeps in line with the overall slim look of the sleeve. On the inside is a microfiber coating that won't scratch your Surface Pro, and a separate holder for your Surface Pen ensures it doesn't scratch the laptop when going in and out of the sleeve.

And don't worry, your Type Cover will fit fine. This sleeve starts at about $40 and is a great option for anyone who likes a bit of style.

WaterField Dash sleeve

Not every sleeve needs to have a flap or a zipper. The Dash from WaterField takes a minimalist approach that uses a simple, stretchy latch that pulls over to keep your Surface Pro in place. In his review, Executive Editor Daniel Rubino had this to say:

There are some specific usage scenarios that the Dash Sleeve fits well, and it's a great option to have if you travel a lot with the Surface Book or Pro 4 and are looking for protection. WaterField Designs is a company that stands behind its products, and I recommend the Dash Sleeve.

It's available in black ballistic nylon or waxed canvas (which is grayer in color) and has real leather accents. On the back is a wide pocket to hold chargers or a book or two, and there is a dedicated slot for the Surface Pen. This premium option from WaterField starts at about $59.

ProCase blurs the line a bit here, offering up a sleeve with a handle, zipper, and plenty of padding. Still, it's thin enough to be a sleeve, and many of you will love it if you carry your Surface Pro around without another larger bag.

It currently has a five-star rating on Amazon with more than 5,500 reviews, and many buyers note the soft, padded interior and spacious pocket on the back for chargers and the Surface Pen.

Available in four colors, this is definitely a favorite sleeve out there, no doubt helped by its $18 price tag.

Professional-looking sleeves don't always have to be made of stark leather. This option from Inateck is made up of a felt material with a leather accent on the flap and is quite striking.
