    The "rip-stop nylon" or parachute material can be bought at most fabric stores. The piece needed for the plans attached above cost roughly $25 and seems unbothered by heat, wind, etc.

    I like these:

    http://www.creativeshelters.com/DisplayAllFittings.asp

    Strong, reusable, and they fit standard emt pipe available cheap (affordable) at HD or lowes.

    I set them up with a couple of cardilinis or mafirs on c-stands.

    i agree, great thread. i've been wanting these things too, but didn't feel like paying a fortune for a glorified piece of cloth.

    Thanks for the help!

    I have one of these:

    I got the 2-stop diffuser and kind of wish I had gotten the 1-stop instead. Very compact and easy to set up with a couple of c-stands. No assembly required. I wish they made bigger ones, though.

    My understanding is that for any attachment you would need a grip head to use with a C-Stand.

    I haven't used these, but they seem pretty reasonable and I've heard good things about Amvona.com
