Runner-up

Ueswill matte hard case

Ueswill's hard shell cases are pretty similar to Mosiso's, but if you'd rather more of a design than a solid color, this should be your choice. Ueswill offers a bunch of fun designs, including floral and marble patterns, as well as various graphics of space, nature, and more.

Reliable protection

ProCase hard shell cover

These matte cases are pretty standard for hard shell covers. There are a number of colors to choose from, and each comes with a keyboard cover, though the keyboard cover is black — it won't match the case color.
