    I’m not sure why someone would rate this reflector low because “it’s too big” since in the 21st century I would hope that people have figured out the concept of measuring length and it’s not the fault of the reflector if they don’t understand that 40 is bigger than 32, but truth be told, this is a nice large reflector and I am glad for it.

    If you do portraits, you want to make sure you cover the shadows and with a smaller one it’s a little harder to aim. I also like that the translucent part of this is big enough to cover a whole person without standing too close to them. Also the large size lets you use this as a background for a headshot or closeup.

    The zipper IS kind of weird but pretty much all 5-in-1 reflectors are a little fussy when it comes to sliding the different reflectors in and this is not something you can do when you’re in a hurry. you need a place to lay down the reflector and slide in the middle part and close the zipper. If this is a problem for you, it might be better to buy dedicated reflectors or a 2-in-1 type thing, but overall if you’re on a budget, this product works well if you are patient.

    FYI, I just use a tripod or light stand and home depot clips to hold this together and not the one that is sold for it.

    Let’s face it, this is a reflector. It really does everything I could ask out of it. It is solid and well made. The slip is easily reversed and I noticed no problems with the zipper, as I had read in other comments. I say that this is a very nice product. The reflectors give a nice bounce and the diffuser works great outdoors, or even as diffusion in front of my studio lights. I think this is a great price and I would recommend it. The only other thing I would say is that being a bigger piece, you really are going to want someone to hold it for you, as it may prove difficult to shoot and hold, but you can always lean it against stuff or get a good c-stand. But I like the size, because it gives you a good surface area for bounce and you can shape it any way you see fit. I have not come across any issues or regrets, it’s a good choice.

    I just received this today and am impressed with it. Very good value for the money. Folds down to a nice size and seems very large when open. I’d recommend this to someone who is looking for a decent reflector at a good price.

    material seems fine but the zipper is very difficult to work with. making this thing reversible is easier said than done.

    This product has a reversible liner that acts as a slipcover that slides over a diffuser panel. If you aren’t really, really careful when changing the cover (turning it inside out and re-covering the diffuser), the zipper gets stuck. While still functional, it looks sloppy and unprofessional. My solution is to have the color reflector I need already on there BEFORE you arrive at the photo shoot. #1 to avoid an unprofessional appearance and #2 to save time – if the zipper gets stuck it takes some time to guide the zipper back and forth properly to fix the problem.
