I prefer the soft tonneaus when I bought my truck it had a fiberglass cover and I took it off almost immediately and got an Extang full tilt tonneau. I prefer it becuase it pops up on pistons, you can take the whole cover off in litterally two seconds, its arched so no water pools, and it can be rolled up. I just feel they look better and are so much easier to have especially if you have something that will stick out of your bed so you need to take the cover off

The hard one should definately offer better security though. Do you plan on always or often having something of value in the bed?

I would also agree with the hard tonneau being just a smidge better for security. Although if they want it, they will find a way. The one downside to some hard covers is the functionality of your bed. That's why I got a Roll-N-Lock. Seemed like the best of both worlds, hard aluminum for security, yet rolls away for complete use of your bed.
