Pros and cons of storing BTC in a wallet vs offline?

Hello, HODLers. I've been following bitcoin and crypto for a few years now and have accumulated a small amount of BTC. I am just curious what your thoughts are on storing BTC on a wallet vs offline. What are the best ways to store it offline, a flash drive or hard drive? Is Coinbase a good wallet? Is it worth potentially losing the offline storage piece in the unlikely event my wallet gets hacked? Any advice is appreciated. Keep HODLing!

Edit: Coinbase is an exchange, clearly distinct from a hardware wallet. I've already learned quite a bit, thanks for the feed back.
