At first I had to tug a little but after using it a couple of times, the zipper is fine.

The size of this reflector is great!

The surfaces materials (gold and silver reflective material) seem to be well bonded and I don't see any signs of flaking off.

The collapsable wire frame seems strong and looks like it will withstand alot of use.

The zipper is the weakest link in the chain. The zipper likes to "catch" on the material and the wire frame. With that said, I think this is the case with all combonation reflectors. I have found after some practice that the zipper problem can be overcome.

***ZIPPER TIP***
When switching surfaces, don't try to zip the reflector in one quick motion. You can close the zipper almost half way before it starts to catch. So when nearing the middle of the zipping process, GENTLY pull the zipper away from the frame while pulling the front and back cover material up off the frame with your other hand**. close the zipper up to where your fingers are holding the front and back cover and then move up about a 1/4 way of the remaining opening and repeat the process of gently pulling on the zipper and cover material. The cover material is very "elastic" and can easily be lifted from the wire frame during the zipping process. It took some practice but now I can change my surfaces while talking to the client and it looks completely effortless.

**Pinch the front and back cover with your thumb and pointer finger while pushing the wire frame down and away from the zipper with your middle finger.

I recently purchased this reflector because i was using a 31" that was too small for my work. I wish i would of just purchased this one from the beginning i would of saved some money that way. Also this one is better then my smaller one because my smaller one has kind of like glitter or some shinny stuff that comes off and gets all over everything but this material doesn't shed any particles. Good product.

I am very happy with every aspect of these reflectors. They are very well built and had the best price I could find for the size and variations. I also love that they came with a compact carrying case! I would definitely recommend this product to others.

It's a great idea: 5-in-1 reflector, compact size, nifty carrying case, fair price. Shipped promptly, too. Problem is, the zipper simply doesn't work. That alone eliminates the coolest aspect of this device (being able to alter the reflector quickly as lighting conditions change). It took me over 5 minutes sweating in the sun with an assistant to get it rezipped. If you want the flexibility of multiple reflectors, or if you just want to come across as somewhat professional, keep looking. If on the other hand you just need a big round disc, it does, as another reviewer noted, actually reflect light.

I ordered the 5-in-1 collapsible Disc Reflector as a gift for my husband, but worried when he opened it and it appeared to be only one disc. Turns out you unzip and reverse the cover on the rim to get all five colors, much to my relief. Super service from a great vendor!!!!

There really isn't much to say here. It reflects light just as it should. It packs up fairly small and the bag that it goes into has a loop that can easily be attached to a camera bag using just about any kind of clip. It is light weight, extremely portable, and well constructed. Worth every penny.

The Good: The construction of the reflectors is good. I really like having different options. The size is nice and works great for portraits.

The Bad: The quality of the carrying bag is shameful. The zipper could break at any moment, hasn't yet, but it sticks all the time and is very cheaply made. The carrying handle of my bag ripped off the first day, so now I have to put the carrying bag in another bag for transport.

The Funny: The first time I opened this up, I didn't expect it to go flying open and make a very loud pop. Either did my cats. Now, every time I get it out, my cats run and hide. Cat owner's, beware. :-)
