Urban Armour Gear Goes Military

   Urban Armor Gear (UAG), founded in 2011, in Orange County, California, brings a sleek new Military Spec drop-tested case for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 to Australia and New Zealand. The lightweight case has an integrated kickstand and a rubber core with bumpers that deflect impact from daily wear-and-tear, as well as occasional hard falls. The company has also announced a wide range of similarly styled cases and folios for other devices including the iPhone 6/6 Plus , iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini, iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S5.



Available in Black (Scout) and Red (Rogue), Urban Armor Gear’s one-piece Microsoft Surface Pro 3 case offers UAG’s unique blend of FrogSkin technology (for assured grip in wet or damp conditions) with an impact resistant tactile backing. In addition to rubber core and protective impact bumpers, UAG is also best known for the extraordinary juxtaposition of its feather-light case with lasting durability. Each Urban Armor Gear case, including the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, exhibits UAG’s distinctive form-fitting construction, with easy access to all buttons and ports – guaranteeing minimal added weight, as well unobstructed functionality. The UAG case for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is compatible with the Microsoft Pro Type Cover Keyboard and features an integrated lightweight aluminium adjustable 5 position kickstand for added convenience. 

As with all UAG products, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 case is independently tested to meet military standards for drop and shock as required under MIL-STD 810G-516.6. This is the US Military certification standard applied to equipment that can withstand tough environmental conditions. Though traditionally awarded to military applications, the Mil-Spec certification is granted to a number of commercial products that achieve the same standards of ruggedness, durability and protection.

According to Steve Armstrong, co-founder of Urban Armor Gear, “Urban Armor Gear is excited to be the first company to provide drop-tested military spec protection for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Our case will allow the mobile professional more freedom while providing maximum protection against drops and shocks.”

Engineered to perfection, UAG also brings the same rugged design and distinctive style to its cases and folios, for the iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini, iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S5*. Available for the first time in Australia and New Zealand, the UAG range comes in numerous striking colour palettes.
