There are specific design issues that I think should prevent the BounceLite from being in most bags.
Let's start by saying the inventor hasn't learned from Gary Fong, that space in a bag is precious, and if you notice, all of the Fong Domes are collapsible now - this thing is rigid plastic and a huge waste of space.
Next, the price point - £80 is still over $120 USD, which is a high price for a Kickstarter where there are existing options in the market place, at a much cheaper point. If you're looking for softer light, you have to move off camera due to size of the modifier, and you can get a Westcott Apollo kit for the same price.
Oh, Iglu71, the UK isn't a top marketplace for cameras, so the majority of backers are paying an extra £12 of shipping, no matter what price level they commit to. Insults seem to be your method of standing up for someone you're related to, but I hate to tell you Neuro is one of the highest respected folks here at CR.
