The Surface Pro 8 is one fine 2-in-1 PC, and adding a case is a fairly inexpensive way to keep it running. We've tested and reviewed plenty of Kensington's Surface accessories, and its BlackBelt Rugged case should be a great general pick for most people who want lots of protection without a ton of bulk. It's not the cheapest option on the list, but it's also not out of the affordable range.

If you do want to go all-out, the UAG Plasma with shoulder strap and 360-degree hand strap is also a top pick. If you're primarily working in the field, it should prove itself invaluable in keeping your Pro 8 pristine.
