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.
