Available in sizes that fit both new Surface Book 2 models, the Tomtoc sleeve (from about $24) has a unique design that offers thick padding around the entire device, including the zippered corners.

The sleeve has a handle on the top so that you can carry it around on its own, which you might be tempted to do thanks to its briefcase look. Two relatively large zippered pockets on the front have plenty of room for a mouse, phone, wallet, and even a slim charger. With a 4.7-star rating on Amazon with more than 500 reviews, there's a good chance you'll be satisfied with this product.

Love the look of (fake) leather but tired of the same drab colors? MoKo's PU leather sleeve (about $17) is available in three colors, including black, brown, and rose gold. It's also available in plenty of sizes, so you'll be able to find an option that works with either Surface Book 2. This sleeve sits at a 4.2-star rating on Amazon with more than 850 reviews, so don't be scared by the price tag.

The large main compartment is lined with felt and is closed by a large magnetic flap.
