WTK: Which soft box is good for travel ??

Evening Gents:

I can't seem to find a good location soft box for my Flashpoint series of lights. I have used:

This my best built box, but it is SUCH a pain to get the black rods in to the plate ! It does fold up pretty nice for travel.

Intefits.

These are made pretty "economically" where the expandable arms are made of plastic and have broken on me and also the diffuser panels velcro to the OUTSIDE of the box so the wind blows them off.

Glow Softbox.

these just plain stink. I love how light they are but they are a bear to unlock and lock into place, and I've had the arms snap off pretty regularly.

I will need Bowens "S" mount. Does anyone have any suggestions for something I can travel with that actually lasts a decent amount of time?
