Bobelock Soft Bag 4/4

Bobelock padded cello bag has a nylon cover to resist water, and the foam padding protects the cello from everyday bumps.   There's a music pocket on the back, accessory pocket and padded bow compartment on the front, and comfy adjustable backpack straps.  When your cello is in the bag, the safest orientation is on its side, with bridge side towards a wall to prevent it from tipping in that direction.  When carrying it through doorways, if it's not on your back, keep it in an upright position so you don't accidentally whack the scroll/neck.  A little common sense goes a long way.  Available colors:  Blue, Black, Green, Burgundy.  Occasionally we have purple or experimental colors.

Bobelock Soft Bags fractional

Bobelock padded bags feature a water-resistant nylon cover with padded, adjustable shoulder straps.  There are three zippered compartments: 1 for bow, 1 for small accessories, 1 for music.   The dual-zippers open and close on either side of the endpin so the tip won't destroy the zipper over time.  Cellos of the same size vary in dimensions, so it helps if you know the length of your cello from the top of the scroll to the bottom edge of the wood, excluding the endpin assembly.  If it is up to 40", buy the 1/2 size ($110, black only at this time).  If it is over 40" and up to 44", buy the 3/4 size ($125, currently in stock in blue and burgundy).  1/4 and 1/8 are not in stock but can be ordered.
