Pros: Very sturdy, very soft; has held up through quite a lot
Cons: None
So we bought a soft carrier because our cats are just the worst when it comes to going into a carrier. They love to start bouncing around when we are actually carrying them so naturally it causes a weight shift and the carrier will tip. When they did this in the plastic ones it used to terrify me for 2 reasons. One being that the poor babies were slamming into hard plastic but also I was terrified the carrier would pop open and they would fall out. This is much softer so when they decide to do gymnastics as I am carrying them into the vet I feel slightly less guilty when they bump into the sides but also it has a shoulder strap so it makes it easier to hold it close to my body so there is less movement of the carrier itself.

Pros: My cat loves softness and the fleece bottom is very soft for her.
She can see me through the mesh.
Cons: She is an elongated cat and even though she has space, I wish she could lay down in it.
My cat Dutchess and I travel out of state to visit my family and she doesn't like boarding. We travel by car or train and this carrier is very sturdy.
I'm not sure but maybe putting wheels on it to roll on a flat surface would be a good idea to alleviate carrying it for those of us that have back problems.

Pros: Comfy
Lightweight
Easy to clean the inside
Cons: Can be difficult to clean on the outside
Can be quite pricey
I have the large size for my cats and I LOVE it! Though it was pretty pricey back in the day, it's lasted me a good 7-6 years and it still looks brand new. I love that it has two openings ; top and side. Easy to put a not so happy kitty inside!
I do, however, find it difficult to clean on the outside.

Comments

I purchased a similar product. I have no complaints about the carrier except that there are three "issues" that don't become apparent until you use one.
1. If the cat pees (and it will), it drips down through the bottom.
2. The case bangs against you as you walk (unless you swing the carrier around to the front).
3. It is soft-sided, so (at least for me) there's a lot of "I hope someone doesn't collide with me as I'm walking down the street."
Those aren't complaints because it isn't like there's a defect in manufacture or something. The cat seems to like the extra airiness (compared to a shell carrier). It's easier to get the cat out (in is always a blood-soaked challenge). It's easier to interact with the cat to keep him or her calm. I suspect that for people who have cars or very brief trips, these are the superior option, but if you have to take your cat on the subway to go to the vet, like I do (and it's roughly an hour there and an hour back) I think the old-fashioned plastic crate is better.
