Pocketwizard AC5 Shields and the 580EXiis

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HGyVhoW8iY&feature=player_embedded

So in this video MArk uses the same setup I have for location photography but I don't see any of the AC5 soft shields on any of his flashes (580EXii).

I am wondering what is your experience on the necessity for this accessory. I have 2 on 2 of 3 flashes and they are cumbersome especially when I need to get to the back or stuff the power cord in side.

I ordered another one..
