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.
The Westcott 301 5-in-1 Reflector is simple to use and comes with a convenient carrying bag. You can either have an assistant hold it, or you can mount it on a stand (sold separately). It's very durable looks way more professional than using a sunshade from the automotive department in Walmart. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, they work as a reflector too).
Here's how it works:
-The silver side is very reflective, and only casts the color of the light being thrown into it.
-The gold side will give you warmer skin tones in situations that you desire warmer light.
-The white side can be used when you need some fill light, but you don't need as much output as the silver side would give you. The white is not as reflective and it's softer.
-The black side will subtract light. If you are in a situation where you want to take away light, you would use this side of the reflector
-The diffuser, is great for sunny days where you want to soften the light on your subject. I recommend buying 2 of the Reflectors because you can use one to diffuse the light and one to use as a fill
Great product from Westcott and you just can't beat this price. It's a great tool for pros and novices alike.

(1) Light weight and compact size when folded
(2) It's size is very good, have used for a group photo of 5 people and it worked fine
(1) Turning it inside out to change the colors from silver to gold (or vice versa) is a bit challeging when it come to closing the zipper
(2) Could be seen as over priced since you could perform the same function using the regular shades used in the car, but I wanted to get the professional look and I was willing to pay for it...
The stand in the product shot is sold separately. I knew that before hand, but thought it's important to mention this in case anyone is confused.
