    You know, I've been watching this thread for just the right case. Right now I'm using this one by Case Logic that I already had. I'd like something more like this one or this one mentioned above, though - something more of a folio style, with a magnetic-closing flap (Please, dear God, no Velcro!). One thing, though. I see on one of them that it has a twill interior, and I'm not seeing the other. That's all well and good if you're not using a TypeCover on your Surface, but with the fabric back-side of the keyboard, it seems to me that getting the Surface in and out will be a pain. My case, while I'd rather have a different style, has the ballistic nylon throughout, so it slides in and out very easily. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

    There IS an office leather sleeve for Surface Pro 3, but as far as I know it's currently only available through the Chinese Microsoft online store as a free gift bundled with Surface Pro 3 pre-orders. Here is the link to this product:

    Maybe it will come to the US later.

    That's a great deal!
    Here's one in a different color that's slightly more, but should ship faster for those in the US.

    It would be good if it didn't cover the ventilation ports. The thing gets pretty warm as it is when playing something like Asphalt 8, so I wouldn't inhibit the air flow at all.

    After posting I also noticed that it covers the bottom edge of the screen, so you couldn't use the magnetic keyboard tilter. The search continues.

    Good point - I hadn't noticed that.

    Plus it just looks cheesey....

    Anytime I see a "stitched" cover or case available in 20 colors, I assume it is crap and will fall apart or not be sized properly or in some way hinder the proper use of the unit.

    Like...how am I supposed to use the kickstand? They have basically limited you to two positions; flat and their predetermined angle shown in the picture.

    I like the look of it, but it is the quality and functional issues that you also have that concern me.

    Here is what my SP3 looks like with the Electric Blue Snuggs wallet case. I also have a matching Incipio Dual Pro case for my Icon too.

    Honestly I don't see the need of a case. As with phones, there simply isn't a design that won't hinder the device in some way. Most of the time that way is bulk, but for the Surface it's mostly the kickstand. For that reason I'm a sleeve fan all the way.

    Brenthaven has spectacular Surface products. They are certainly on the higher dollar end, but I dropped my Surface RT in their Trek Case two stories onto hardwood (yes it was an accident, don't ask how) and it left my device completely unscathed. Since they tailor to business professionals, all of their stuff is also quite sleek and even luxurious.

    Here's a minimalist leather sleeve case. just plain slip in and out. And the best part of this minimalist case is that they included stitching logo of Windows on the side.

    This is great for those who just need to protect their surface inside their backpacks/briefcase full of pens, paper clips, car keys, knife, pizza cutters, etc. its quick and easy to grab.

    Found this one from Wakefield. It's pretty nice looking, but I'm not sure I'm willing to shell out $129 ($109 for the back + $19.99 for the strap) for it.

    I like this bag too. They must've just recently posted it on their site. Didn't see this bag several weeks ago. I didn't want a sleeve type of case. I want something with a strap so I can put it around my shoulder. Hope they have it in store in SF.

    I got the Belkin sleeve from Best Buy. It fits the Surface Pro 3 like a glove.

    Got the amCase 11.6 inch Neoprene case from Amazon and I am really impressed. I am new to the Surface tablet alltogether (loving it so far!) and wanted to get something to keep it safe when travelling for work or on the go. I got the case last week and have since placed an order for another for my laptop. They are a great price and I also got free shipping on Amazon. There was a coupon code on the page as well, gave me about 2$ off, though I am not sure how long Amazon will have that deal.

    Was around 10$ and shipped to me quick. Is nice, this black neoprene and has a really soft inside linning. The zipper is nice too, I like that better than the standard velcro. Also had carrying handles, which cam ein handy when I was at the airport etc. Will post pics if anyone wants.

    Here's another Surface Pro 3 case from Exact: Amazon.com: Exact Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Case [SUITE Series] - Slim PU Leather Portfolio Case for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Black: Computers & Accessories

    It accommodates the adjustable kickstand but I need to see better pictures to be convinced.

    check pictures of the brown version. you see how it works there. it also looks like the quality isn't very good (when looking at the brown) - almost like those paper (tyvek) wallets - which I use and love.

    Something to consider. I just kinda figured this out. Pretty much any case designed for a MacBook Air will work with the SP3. My electric blue Snugg folio case is for the MacBook Air (although I bought it at my local Microsoft Store). If that helps.

    I went with the chocolate leather City Slicker sized for a MacBook Pro Retina for my SP3: CitySlicker MacBook Case – WaterField Designs. Fits perfectly. I store the type cover in the back pocket and the SP 3 goes in the very soft and plush main compartment.
