|Liesje||LOL I bought Danielle's crate from her and sold it! It was a good crate (I think the same one Debbie pictured?), I just found that for flyball I need wire crates because we never have enough space in our allotted crating area. Now that I have 3 flyball dogs I need to stack my dogs, or at least be able to put all my stuff on top (which includes large jugs of water and tubs of food..heavy stuff). Also for flyball I really prefer that Nikon be in a 42" between races. The 36" is fine for travel in the van or taking turns at agility but I don't like him running really hard and then going into a crate where he is forced to curl up, especially at summer tournaments when it can be beastly hot and humid. The soft crate seemed a tad larger than a normal 36" wire crate but not as big as the 42". Also didn't have the ventilation (we blow fans on the dogs in the summer).|

|Cassidy's Mom||Danielle, I had a similar one for Dena when she was taking agility classes years ago. The only problem with those is that dogs who are so inclined can roll them around, lol. I bought stakes for hers, since our classes were outdoors and she tipped it over a couple of times until I started staking it to the ground.|

Honestly? I bought a nicer soft crate, my dogs were a little too hard on it and it was still a little heavy, so I sold it.
I bought one of these for my border collie for agility, training, going to people's houses, etc. It's a tenth of the weight, 2x easier to set up/tear down, cute color (I got lime green) and CHEAP!
Serves the same purpose... keeps in a keepable dog.

I have Noz2Noz crates too, and I love them! Super easy to put up and take down, (I can do it by myself while holding Halo on her leash at flyball), and they're nice and sturdy.
I originally got one for Keefer that's actually much bigger than he needs, so I got the next size down for Halo:
Dena and Keefer both fit easily in the bigger one:
I slide Halo's soft crate behind the front seats in my car, so it takes up no space at all.

I have two of these TUFF Crate 2- Soft Crate - Canvasback Pets and I really like them, they've held up really well and stay cleaner than I thought they would.
When I go to trials I am often taking 2 XL crates, our ez up, some xpens, 2 dogs and all our gear. Ease of carrying is important and these crates have handles when they are folded up and are light enough that I can carry 2 in one hand and two canvas chairs in the other
When I was searching for soft crates I didn't like any one the ones I found it pet stores. They all had curved tops, a flat top is important to me as I often leave leashes, treats, water bowls on top of them.
I ordered the crate I posted a link of and set it up to a natures miracle soft crate (which also has a flat top) and the great crate was sturdier, shook less and had thicker fabric so it was the one that went home. I work at a pet retail store so I just ordered it to there from the company. I did look at a LOT of soft crates though and this was the easiest to get, sturdiest and affordable that I came across.
And Doggiedad, I do feel that you always mean well but I often shake my head at your posts. You sometimes have good info but come across as so negative and condescending, especially to a newbie who may have been hesitant to post what they did in the first place.

Love love love mine. Have had it for years. Very user friendly assemble, there are no poles, it just pops up and you zip the ends close. I am a small girl and have no problems transporting the CC. I take it to rescue events, training, and dog events when I bring my dogs along for my photography booth. GREAT product! I have many friends that use it.
Mine was purchased online.
