silver/white.  They also make a gold/White that I plan on getting later<
I use those Photoflex from a long time, mostly in my "video job", and they
are really useful when your subject is "back-lighted". The one I use mainly

Those items are more practical than the traditional polystirol.
One cheap alternative is a "survival blanket" this thin foil of
"aluminized" plastic is too noisy (for the use I have) and too wind
