thanks, chasg and clueless wanderer, for the replies. really helpful.
good to hear that i can fold the ezybox much smaller than they officially say. will try it out!!
so i can basically do what is shown in this video?
how big are the chances that i will break my softbox??

Yeah man, you got it right (you tube)
Its all about restistance. It will resist you a little, show it who's boss But if its resisting you hard, don't force too much. Personally, I have found that the extreeme fold can twist the ribs inside the material of the wings/leading edge, but are easily coaxed back. To try and improve longevity of the Ezybox I make sure I always fold it the same way each time, using the logo badge as reference to the orientation ..
