The 24 x 36" PortaFrame Scrim Flag Kit from Impact contains some of the lesser-known modifiers in imaging, though they have a maximum effect on a production's subtlety and nuance, especially in close-ups. They also provide the ability to selectively light larger areas. The kit is comprised of five folding, compact, metal flag frames that accept sleeved fabric modifiers that are stretched into the 24 x 36" shape when locked into place.

For use with the frames, the kit comes with a 1/2-stop Black Single Net, a 1-stop Black Double Net, and a Black Light Blocker. A 1-stop and a 2-stop Silk Diffuser are also included in this size.

Dots and Fingers are used to modify small areas of a subject or location. This kit includes a 1/2-stop 6" Single Black Net Dot and a 6" Black Light Blocker Dot. For more linear light modification, two 4 x 14" fingers, one 1/2-stop Single Black Net, and one Black Light Blocker are included. All of these scrims are mounted onto optional grip heads, articulated arms, or accessories made for that purpose. The included carry case has inner compartments and pockets made to keep the components of the kit organized and at the ready.

Portability
The Impact PortaFrame Scrim Flag Kit fits in a 44 x 11 x 3" carry case, about 75% more space-efficient than separate components.
Construction
Constructed from durable steel, these three-sided collapsible frames have two arms that fold out from the center bar and lock into place. In combination with the easily interchangeable fabric covers, these flag frames can be easily mounted onto any standard grip head. The collapsible frame allows for easy transport and storage.
Versatile
Each type of fabric scrim or screen blocks or diminishes light to a different degree. Having a variety of options at hand means you can fine-tune lighting easily in any situation or environment.
Block Light, Diffuse Light, Reduce Light Intensity
Color-coded for easy identification, each element of the kit blocks the light completely, softens it, or reduces it to a calibrated degree.
Dots and Fingers
Dots and fingers allow you to shape light on smaller objects or areas. They're ideal for tabletop shooting or in situations where larger fabrics are inconvenient.
Easy Storage
The removable fabric screens and scrims fold up for safe storage and travel inside the carry bag.
Carry Bag
The carry bag for the scrim kit protects your flags, frames, and scrims, and keeps everything organized and gathered together in one handy lightweight bag.

Perfect!

Love the portability of this kit. So versatile. Wish there was more than one black flag but I'll probably get more along the way. Definitely a good buy!

Cheap and decent quality.

The black is a little bit porous, so it is not quite the same as a solid object (a bit of light gets through, which you can see through it quite prominently, but not much light will actually spill onto whatever you're flagging.) If your use case requires 0 light through the black flags then you will likely need to try a different option. Overall the quality of the fabrics are so-so. I would not handle them roughly. The kit is generally small and light, for the dimensions (it is just slightly longer than 24", and packs down quite flat.) Once you put the fabrics on the frame, just leave them on to extend the life of the materials (taking them on and off will wear the fabrics, and they fit fine in the case without the fabrics being removed.) Overall, for the price, and for someone that handles things with care, they are a great value, but they do show the cheapness of the price tag, so if you're expecting matthews build quality you will likely be disappointed (you're not paying a matthews price, after all.)

Works well

Excellent value for the money! Much cheaper than their competition. All scrims and diffusion are well made. Only the blacks are not truly black. But for the price, a minor short coming.

This is the most affordable scrim flag kit in the market as far as I can tell. Even better when it's on sale. Based on some online research, it looks like another company sells this same kit (probably made in the same factory) under a different name for almost double the cost. When you lift up the carrying case, it feels heavy, so the frames are pretty solid. Definitely a good purchase.

It's really similar. If they measur Ex the same they may work. The way the frames lock is the only difference I can see.
