It sounds absurd to think that something as simple as black cloth could be worth the high price, but if you've ever used a cheaper flag, you can tell instantly. This is a must have for any gaffer or DP. Hell, even if you're a YouTube, wedding videographer or photographer, these are the end all be all neg flags.

This is a must have in controlling light for portraits. I also found this an essential tool for maintaining blackout backgrounds when using large umbrellas.

It's a flag of good quality.

This flag is made to last and it cuts the light with its thick canvas fabric very well. I found mounting it with a boom are in a umbrella bracket worked well for my needs.

Great investment

Most use a wooden box, a flag box. If you were to use a bag, it would need to be heavy duty canvas/fabric. These are rectangular, inflexible. And, dealing with the tongue , maybe a tennis ball?

This is flag rather than a floppy cutter, which has the extra layer of material. An example of this is the Matthews Floppy Cutter - 24x72", BH # MAFC2472Q https://bhpho.to/2G8dc5b
