It's not cheap, but it's certainly one of the finest ways to add a bit of style and protection to your device.

Mozo Saffiano sleeve

Mooo Saffiano sleeve

Mozo and Microsoft have a long relationship when it comes to cases and sleeves for Surface products, and their Saffiano sleeve (about $56) is a knockout. It's made from a high-end, textured leather that's pressed to deliver a cross-hatch finish. To preserve the leather, it's then given a wax treatment.

Executive Editor Daniel Rubino, in his review, said:

The look, feel, and uniqueness makes these sleeves a perfect match for Surface, so much so that you might think Microsoft made them.

The pocket of the sleeve is lined with suede to protect your laptop, and there's enough room to snugly fit the Surface Pen. If you don't mind paying a bit more, this luxury sleeve is one of the best around.

UAG ICE case

UAG ICE case

Though the other options on this list will protect your Surface Laptop up to a certain point, you might be looking for a case that can protect your device when you're out working in the field. UAG makes a similar case for the Surface Book that Executive Editor Daniel Rubino warmly reviewed, and the quality extends here. You're getting an armored shell that's passed MIL-STD 810G standards, with drop bumpers on the outer edges, grippy finish on the outside, and even a holder for your Surface Pen. It's pricier than the other options at about $80, but it will no doubt prove invaluable to anyone who's hard on their laptop.
