Incipio, Kensington, and UAG join Surface Go party with new rugged cases and covers

Surface Go shipments are arriving on store shelves and doorsteps today, which means it's also time for case makers to get in on the action. First out of the gate are Incipio, UAG, and Kensington – each of which has debuted its own set of cases and covers for Microsoft's diminutive tablet (via Reddit).

UAG Metropolis Series

First up is UAG (seen above), which has a rather bulky but tough-looking Metropolis Series case on offer. With three colors available – black, blue, or red – the Metropolis Series case for Surface Go is rated to meet military drop-test standards, according to UAG. And despite its large size, the case will still let you slot in and use your Type Cover as needed. There's also a built-in slot for Surface Pen storage and a sturdy looking kickstand around back.

UAG's Metropolis Series case for Surface Go is available to order now for $69.95.

Kensington BlackBelt

Sticking with the rugged theme, Kensington's BlackBelt case for Surface Go also features "military-grade protection," meeting the same drop-test standards as the UAG model. Where Kensington differs is in the case's design, which is slightly sleeker. Around back, there's a cutout for the Surface Go's own kickstand to pop out, rather than a dedicated kickstand attached to the case.

Also included are a silicone hand strap and Surface Pen holder, along with a cutout so you can use the Type Cover with your Surface Go.

Kensington's BlackBelt Rugged case for Surface Go is available now for between $55 and $70, depending on where you order it.


Incipio Surface Go cases

Finally, Incipio has a more diverse range of cases available for Surface Go, ranging from a typical folio option to an ultra-rugged design. The Incipio Faraday Folio case fits around a Surface Go with a polycarbonate shell with a magnetic cover for the screen. Meanwhile, the Capture case packs a bulkier, rugged design with a 360-degree rotating handle around the back. Lastly, Incipio's Octane Pure case is a simple clear back shell that protects against bumps while giving you a peek at your device.

Of course, Incipio is offering up a couple of tempered glass screen protectors as well, including a privacy protector.

None of Incipio's offerings are available to order just yet, but they range in price from $49.99 to $79.99.
