|We have both, they each have pros/cons.
-must be used if you are flying
-good if you may get banged around a bit
-Easy to carry, it has regular straps and a shoulder strap. Mom has seen some with wheels and some that can be carried like a backpack
-Very comfy, ours is fleece lined and mesh on 3 sides so we can see. Zory sleeps in it, and Lucy doesn't put up a fight when going to the vet(the same can not be said for the hard carrier, that's a 20 minute scratching ordeal).
-Looks nice, ours is sitting right in the living room. It has denim on the top and cat paw prints on it.
-Has storage, we keep our vet information, collars, and comb in the outer pocket at all times.
-Can be a toy, ours unzips on both sides and Zory runs through it like a tunnel.
-Can be a "convertible". The top unzips and there is a little latch to hook your fur baby's coller. This way you can pet her while you drive but don't have to worry about her running around the car. This is more a perk for small dogs, but a good bonus.
Zory's carrier is from PetSmart, it's a Companion Road brand. We've had it a year with no rips or anything.
We did once get a cheap soft carrier which both cats figured out how to unzip!
Expect to pay more for a good soft carrier, but unless you're going somewhere by plane, we suggest it.
