Tomtoc 360-degree sleeve

Tomtoc 360-degree sleeve

Available in sizes that fit both new Surface Book 2 models, the Tomtoc sleeve (about $28) has a unique design that offers thick padding around the entire device, including the zippered corners. This protects your laptop from even the most awkward drops or bumps that you might encounter when out in the wild.

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 5-star rating on Amazon with more than 275 reviews, there's a good chance you'll be satisfied with this product.

HEX sleeve

HEX sleeve

Anyone who already has a trusty laptop bag might be looking for a sleeve that provides ample protection without being too bulky. This option from HEX (about $55) doesn't have its own handle, but it does have a secondary zippered pocket on the back for some smaller accessories.

The padded main compartment will fit both 13.5- and 15-inch variations, but for a snug fit you'll want to grab it for the latter size. For something padded that will still easily fit into another bag, this sleeve will do.

MoKo PU leather sleeve

MoKo PU leather sleeve

Love the look of (fake) leather but tired of the same drab colors? MoKo's PU leather sleeve (about $14) is available in five colors, including magenta and purple. 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 4.3-star rating on Amazon with more than 650 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. A slim pocket on the back of the sleeve can hold some small, thin accessories, but this is made to be as portable as possible; expect to use it primarily with another bag as there is no handle to grab when walking around.
