The Surface Pro X is the thinnest Pro yet from Microsoft, and its premium chassis is certainly one to behold. It's portable by nature thanks to the lightweight build and LTE connectivity, so you probably want to add some protection to keep it scratch-free or safe from drops while you're on the move. We've rounded up a bunch of the best sleeves for the Pro X right here.
WaterField's products are handmade in San Francisco, and you can expect a premium product in the Dash. It's made of ballistic nylon for impressive but lightweight durability and a water-resistant coating keeps out unplanned weather. The inside is lined with compression foam to keep your Pro X safe, and it's secured with an elastic strap. Grab it in a vertical or horizontal orientation.
Thick corner protection
Are you worried about drop damage? This tomtoc 360 sleeve has thick padding around all four corners instead of just along the sides. It's all wrapped up in a sturdy zippered pocket with room for a Pro X and an attached Type Cover. A smaller zippered pocket on the outside holds smaller accessories, and you'll be able to choose from more than a few different colors and designs.
Need a quality sleeve but don't want to spend too much? This Mosiso sleeve comes in a bunch of different designs and the price is certainly right. A main zippered pocket lined with fleece has padding to protect your Pro X against drops and scrapes, while a secondary zippered pocket on the outside has room for your charger and smaller accessories.
Handle for easy carrying
Inateck's 12.3-inch sleeve fits all Pro models, including the X, bringing a soft flannel lining to prevent scratches and a durable polyester exterior that protects against the elements. The main pocket is zippered to keep everything inside, and a handle on top makes it easy to carry on its own, sort of like a briefcase. Grab it in Dark Gray or Black colors.
PU leather option
MoKo's sleeve is a great option for deal hunters and vegans alike. It's made from PU leather for a sharp, professional look, complete with a magnetized folding flap to keep everything in place. The inside is lined with felt to prevent scratches, and a dedicated Surface Pen holder on the side is ideal if you're still using the original model instead of the Surface Slim Pen.
With real leather
This premium slim sleeve is handmade in San Francisco from a single piece of full-grain leather, with the corners along the top cut to allow a charging cable in. A dedicated Surface Pen holder keeps it close at hand, and the interior is lined with plush to prevent scratches. A snug fit holds your Pro X in place instead of a zipper to further prevent damage to your device. Grab it in Grizzly or Chocolate leather color.

Any of the sleeves included in the roundup above will offer on-the-go protection for your Surface Pro X. However, if you're wondering which one to ultimately go with, we recommend checking out the Waterfield Designs Dash sleeve. Each Dash is handmade specifically for the Pro X, meaning you're going to get a perfect fit that comes with a lifetime warranty.
It's available in either black ballistic nylon or a Luna textile in four other colors, including blue, green, red, and grey. You can also choose between horizontal or vertical orientation, which changes the side into which you can slip your Pro X. To keep it all contained, an elastic band slips over the opening. For your smaller accessories, including charger, there's a zippered mesh pocket on the back of the sleeve.
The Dash is relatively pricey, so if it's not quite in your budget we also recommend checking out the tomtoc 360. Many sleeves provide padding along the sides but neglect the corners where accidental drops will do the most damage. The tomtoc 360, however, offers thick protection around all corners, along with plush lining to cut down on any scratching. The main pocket is zippered, and there's a secondary zippered pocket on the outside for your smaller accessories.
