One of the brands for a rugged case that comes up on my mind is the Urban Armor Gear (UAG). It's famous in making rugged military-grade cases for expensive electronics, and besides, I need a case that is tough because I move around a lot for work, so I still trust this brand to protect my new device.
I'm impressed with the rugged design. Although it looks tough with the feel of reptilian skin, it feels soft at the same time.
Design & Features
The UAG Metropolis Feather-Light Rugged Case for Surface Pro X feels like aplastic and hard rubber with heavily reinforced corners. The skin of the case feels like a reptilian skin but feels smooth at the same time. I also found a small elastic with a thumb tab, and I think it's to allow my Surface Pro X's keyboard to stay shut during transportation. I think it also helps protect the display since the keyboard cover acts as a screen protector.
This rugged case also has an external Surface Pen holder on the top of the case. There are also small slots on all four corners that can be utilized for lanyards. The kickstand is made out of hard plastic one. The latest design feels better, but I understand how some people would prefer a metal kickstand for outdoor work, but I think the benefit of going plastic is to reduce weight and keeping the Surface Pro X as light as possible.

|What I dislike||
The UAG Metropolis Feather-Light Rugged Case for Surface Pro X looks nice and tough. While it adds weight and thickness, the peace of mind that I get is worth the A$99.95. I work outdoors, so I need something rugged and simple for my Surface Pro, and this is the one. The case requires no tools to install or remove, making it ideal for those who prefer security and accessibility.
Overall, I recommend it for those who require higher levels of device protection to bring for your adventure. Some would prefer the metal kickstand, but I believe the benefit of going plastic is to reduce weight and keeping the Surface Pro X as light as possible. So, that's all about my honest review.
