It’s been a few weeks since the Windows 10 tablet Surface Pro X launched to say the least. But now a custom Surface Pro X rugged case will launch for it, as the Kensington Blackbelt 2nd Degree series of rugged tablet cases will launch for the Surface Pro X to on June 23rd:
Kensington has a line of rugged tablet cases mainly for Surface tablets, as Kensington is a partner of Microsoft, and their Kensington Blackbelt 2nd Degree lineup is supposed to reflect that. So Kensington is a member of what is known as the Designed for Surface Team, who then develop products that are officially certified by Microsoft to the extent that Microsoft even sell Kensington’s products at Microsoft Store.
So the fit should be tight and practical for the Surface Pro X. The rugged case has a high MIL-STD810G drop protection rating, and offers normal access to the rear kickstand, open but protected access to the ports, protection of the buttons, and includes a flexible self-adjusting hand strap on the back, as well as an additional pen holder for the Surface Slim Pen that’s otherwise stored in the keyboard when used without the rugged case.
The case can be used with or without the keyboard, and when the keyboard is attached and closed, it is locked into place with the Kensington TypeCover strap at the right corner.
