Does anyone know of a case that provides more protection for the pro that is not the leather folio type? I'm thinking more like the rugged rubber cases that people put on their kids ipads. I do home inspections and love my pro but I need better protection.
You do realize that the vast majority of case accessories are made by third parties outside of any contractual obligation and not the device manufacturers, right? A phone call from MS isn't going to do it. Hence, the reason why there are a billionty options for iStuff is due to market forces. Surface commands a small fraction of the overall market, and MS is putting their resources into the actual hardware at this point.Hey Curney,
As a home inspector in California, I had the same question about a 'bump case' for the Surface Pro. So I have been looking everywhere on the web and basically found nothing specific to the Surface Pro. As a current Fujitsu (Stylistic Tablet 1031D) user, the bump case is a no brainer and they provide great accessories. The bump case they have for my product is a padded canvas material with a shoulder strap. So whats up with Microsoft? There is a huge professional industry out there that does data entry in the field and needs to step up their tablet protection. I have visited the local Microsoft store - no help, called Microsoft - not only no help, they can not connect you with anyone that cares, very frustrating.
Thanks for the feed back. Yes, I get the majority of products are produced by third party vendors, some good, some crap. The point is that if for some reason after being on the market for over 6 months and not seeing any viable 'bump case' products out there, some one has to get this going. I mention the manufacture (Microsoft) as it is in their interest to have their product (Surface pro) desired and used by as many customers as possible. As a professional products manufacture, Fujitsu has always made sure their customers could use their products effectively.You do realize that the vast majority of case accessories are made by third parties outside of any contractual obligation and not the device manufacturers, right?

So, padded canvas material with a shoulder strap? Sounds like an Etsy project. Heck, because there ARE Surface-specific fitted (p)leather folios out there, adding padding to the outside with a zipper or something might work out as well.
Hey Curney,Perry, I bought this and it works great. place to hold the pen and a better hinge angle. Me and a few other home inspectors are using it here.

Hey Corney,I just carry it in my hand but it does have a hand strap on the back.
