A company called Urban Armor Gear has started selling a rugged case, the Scout, that's been made especially for Microsoft's Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 tablets. The company claims it is the first case for those devices to meet military standards.
The Scout has been independently tested to make sure it meets the MIL-STD 810G-516.6 standard for drop and shock when it is used in combination with Microsoft's Type Cover keyboard. That means the case can protect the Pro or Pro 2 from a drop of several feet. Urban Armor Gear adds:
The distinctive one-piece design features a soft tactile backing with Frogskin technology that provides grip in wet or damp conditions, while a rubber core and bumpers resist impact from drops and abuse. Utilizing UAG's feather-lite construction, the patented form-fitting design adds minimal size and weight, maintains compatibility with the Microsoft Surface Pro Type Cover keyboard, and includes an integrated kickstand.
The Scout case, which at the moment only comes in black, is now on sale for $59.99. There's no word on if a version of the case will be made for the new Surface Pro 3. If you use your Surface Pro or Pro 2 a lot, are you interested in checking out this rugged case?
