|I don't have any experience with the soft carriers, but I do with the rattling hard carrier. Is the rattle from the door? That's what our hard carriers do, and our cubs also hate it. So do I, it's annoying!
I wrapped a large bungee cord around the hard carrier, because I am PARANOID about those plastic clips breaking open and having the kitties fall out and be injured or escaping. To stop the rattling door, I attached a small bungee to the hinge and stretched across the door and hooked it to the wraparound bungee. This keeps everything quiet, and it's not foolproof security, but it makes me less worried that the door will fly open or that the clips will break and the bottom will fall out when being carried.
If you do go with the hard carrier, I would suggest putting a soft bed or mat inside so your kitty has a comfy spot to curl up. My cats like the West Paw sleeping mats for lounging around the house, so I got small ones for the carriers. They still hate to go for rides, but these things have helped.
