Best Sleeves and Cases for Microsoft Surface RT

Made out of the magnesium shell the housing of Microsoft Surface RT is sturdy. On the front there is Gorilla Glass 2, this is another tough wonder. Having made from these two elements the Surface RT seems strong enough.

This is the reason you need a case or a sleeve to carry your new tablet. Here are some of  the best sleeves and cases available for Surface RT tablet.

    I bought the Knomo Balham Surface envelope and love it. Really classy and rugged.

    How’s that case in regard to accessories. I can see it’s a small pocket on the inside, but how much can it fit? Really just need it to fit the flat Arc Touch mouse and preferably the charger…

  3. Ian Denchasy

    Welllll, I wish I could say it’s good for accessories, but it’s definitely not. I have the flat Arc Touch Mouse and it fits that alright, but the power adapter makes it bulge out and defeats the elegance.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I think elegant looks weigh in favor anyway. I can keep the charger in my jacket pocket 🙂
