Light cubes

A colleague would like to get one of those pop-up light tents, i.e., basically a translucent cube of white material, for photographing artefacts. The sort of thing that creates even, mainly shadow free, lighting and helps cut out reflections on shiny objects. I know we have one at the office... but the office has been more-or-less closed for a year.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good quality one? It doesn't need to be especially large.

Many thanks, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

How big does it need to be? I have one with some LED lights and I think you perhaps live nearby? Happy to loan it out.

Thanks Jon, but it isn't for me but for a colleague in South Carolina! The offer is most appreciated, however.

Thanks John. That one is in the wrong place, but it gave me a good link to follow to find something suitable. I've forwarded on the details.

Many thanks all, very helpful.
