I am looking at finding a way to create a colored background with my flash. I looked at Strobist and they use gels pointing at a white wall behind the subject to get their colored backgrounds.

Does anybody have any suggestions on what kind of gels work best and are durable as well?

I've used all kinds, from the small ones that are included in a Nikon flash purchase to the big sheets. As long as you take care of them they should last years. I've also had good luck using gray backgrounds instead of white, that will give you a more saturated color if thats what you want.
