Bang for Buck 48'' Softbox for Locations?

I recently picked up a Flashpoint XPLOR600Pro with a C-stand for a great deal used. I have 43'' and 32'' umbrellas but am looking into getting a larger softbox. I will be using this for location work the overwhelming majority of the time. So I want it to be fast to set up and break down, I don't want it to fall apart in six months, and I would like to have a grid for it. I was looking at these below. Any opinions? Anything else I should be looking at?

Glow EZ Lock Octa Quick XL Softbox With Bowens Mount (48") -- $90

Glow EZ Lock Deep Parabolic Quick Softbox (48") -- $95, twice as heavy, no experience with a parabolic softbox before.

Cheetahstand Easy Open Deep Parabolic Softbox - RiceBowl RB-120P -- $200, twice as expensive, twice as well made? I really like that you can keep both diffusers attached when breaking it down. The optional choptix looks very interesting but not sure I need it. Seems to be out of stock.

Cheers and thanks!

Matt
