Sizing a cello:
The best size depends on the person, their arm length, hand size and height, the chart is good for a rough estimate of possible sizes. It would be best to consult  with  a professional instructor for their recommendations.

Types of Cases:

 The picture is of a Musilia S3

    Much Like the carbon fiber it has a great protection level but also weighs a fair amount. Heavier than the Carbon fiber.
Lighter then Fiberglass may be as affective or less affective from the fiberglass models.

    A carbon fiber case will offer great protection, somewhat lighter weight and cost a fair amount more.

 The picture is of a Duralite

The absolute least affective in protection and also the lightest weight to carry.
Woven Poly Textured cloth over rigid foam cushioning. This offers less protection but can be a much lighter case to carry.

Hard cases may have built in wheels as part of the case.
Backpack style straps may also be available on any of the case styles.
