With its lightweight construction and variety of carrying options, the Metropolitan Cello is perfect for the active musician.
The case is a bridge between a bag and a hard case. It's a lightweight suspension case that is crafted using a layered construction of dense padding and a thin fiberglass to provide durability of a hard case with a much lighter overall weight.

Decent, good looking case
I purchased this case for my daughter who only had a soft gig bag for her cello. Her cello is a step up from student quality, but I couldn't see paying several hundred dollars or more for one of the fiberglass or carbon fiber cases. This case suits our needs quite well for a good price. It is a hard case, and seems like it will provide a good level of protection. I like the variety of carrying options and the built in music pocket on the back. Most other hard cases don't include a music pocket and buying a separate, attachable music pocket can run an additional $70. I also like that this case zippers closed. This avoids issues that can occur with clasps, such as, not aligning well or breaking. The only thing with the zipper is that it can be difficult to open the case easily when in a crowded backstage area. Overall this case is an excellent value, it is lightweight and very maneuverable. Customer service is also excellent- I asked a question about the case and it was answered quickly, also the shipping was fast.
