      Considering what is out there I feel this is a good buy.
      The fact that it is portable and feels sturdy makes it useful.
      If you are just building a light kit and don't have a budget for all sizes
      of scrims, flags, dot etc.. this is the way to go. You might find that you need more modifiers as time goes on but this is a great start.

      Nice to be able to pack this totally flat and a little smaller than the size frames they are, but, regret a bit not getting a regular flag set.

      Comes with two frames, which is nice, but if using both frames, to switch out to another fabric type, you'd have to break down one and reassemble, whereas a regular flag set you can just switch out.

      Sure, if one fabric rips you only have to replace that fabric, but, with a regular set you'd just have to replace that flag. Not sure where the huge value really is.

      Makes the most sense if you're more concerned with space and being able to tightly pack a car.

      Frames are kind of a pain to set up too.

            Gets a couple of frames and a few different flag/scrim materials into a (somewhat) portable kit (more portable than carrying 4-5 fixed frame 24x36" scrims and flags).

            Good for what it is.

            By Me the gaffer

            from San Francisco Bay Area

            Comments about Westcott Fast Flags Scrim Kit:

            Good for what it is, but do note the limitations:
            - The steel frames are not as light as the MSE Road Rags competition which I believe have aluminum frames, but might be more durable since you can bend them back into shape.
            - The frames are not nearly as taut as the standalone nonfoldable matthews flags, so they flop around a bit and the open edges aren't quite straight.
            - There is a seam on the open edges of the nets and silks, unlike some of the nonfoldable ones.

            I think it might be better to stick with smaller sizes for foldable frame flags, which wouldn't be as floppy, like 18x24 instead of 24x36.

            I'd be hesitant to use these in windy conditions because of the overall floppiness would likely sway around, but then again any flags have issues in the wind.

              Students use these kit to direct and diffuse halogen lighting. It's quite capable, but needs a decent, heavy duty stand to support the flags. We purchased grip stands from another manufacturer.

              I really like this kit and would have given it 5 stars however one of the metal frames bent the first time I used it.
              It would be spectacular if they made a kit with carbon fiber frames to cut down on the weight.

                  The black flag bends the frame a little so if you need a hard edge it may be a problem. Great if you are traveling.

                    Pretty handy little kit if you don't want to/can't carry around a full flag kit.
                    They can definitely stand up in professional use, but best for the budget/indie world. I like it and would buy it again.

                    I was under the impression that there were enough frames to hang the flags on so that I could use all 4 flags at once, but there are only 2. That being said - there are very durable well made flags which have so far been a pleasure to work with.

                      Nice and big, the only bad thing might be the lock on the folding arms. Its not the most re-assuring system, but on our first shoot with them We Never Had A Problem. So I think it'll be fine. Its a full 3ft long so make sure you've got some room to haul them around. The size is way nice, the portability is the way to go and the build seems better than other brands of portable scrims that i have used. So, not bad!

                          The kit comes with two frames and 4 fabrics (diffusion, black, single scrim, double scrim). The frames are solid and easy to mount. There is a bit of extra space in the included bag to add more things (I carry my grip heads in it). Best portable kit for the price.
