Best Microsoft Surface Case, Cover And Sleeve

Updated on March 31, 2014

Cases And Covers Suitable For The New MS Surface

The new tablet from Microsoft is sleek, elegant and quite expensive too. That's why it needs a good protective cover to keep it from getting scratched, bumped, or even dusty, all of which can eventually hinder the tablet working properly. So if you're looking for the best Microsoft Surface case designs, including covers and sleeves, I have compiled some of the best ones such as made of real leather, elegant carrying ones, keyboard cases, water resistant covers, soft sleeves and pretty much everything you might need to protect and show off your new Tablet With Windows 8.

The Surface, as most people call it, is one of the relatively new additions to the tablet market of 2012.

Microsoft Surface Soft Sleeve

While we don't know yet what the future will bring us, the new MS Surface tablet has already integrated well with the rest of the batch, including the iPad, Google's Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy, and so on. And because it's far from cheap, like any valuable gadget, it needs a good case or protective cover that doesn't disappoint and doesn't come apart within a few weeks. I hope the selection below will be to your liking.

Why The Need For A Protective Cover For The New Office Tablet?

Let's face it, the gadget is cool! And it's not cheap either. So protecting it with a quality (and elegant) case is a must. But what other benefits do you have besides simple protection from bumps and scratches? Is it really worth getting one of these protectors or they're mostly a waste of money?

First of all, as I mentioned above, you protect it against scratches and knocks. That alone should be enough to get you to buy a case (I did buy for mine too).

Second, nobody likes to look at a scratched tablet, it cheapens it no matter how much money you spent on it. It just looks weird.

As to which type is best to get? Personally I'm drawn to leather cases, they are not only elegant (there is just something to leather, don't you think?), but they are extremely sturdy and have a quality in themselves. Sure, they're a tad big more expensive than similar plastic cases, but you get more prolonged use out of them too.

The Official Case From Microsoft Itself

We have to start with the official covers made by Microsoft, since they are the best fit for their own Surface tablet. The cover comes in 5 different colors and let me just say that it's a bit pricy. So if you find it too expensive, just scroll down to much cheaper alternatives. Here you have the black as example of what you get. When you click through you will be able to see the other 4 available colors.
