When I can get it (which is about never) i like Arri's Varicon system to reduce contrast.

Keep it simple!
I'd also take a box of homemade nets as they technically aren't filters.

...then I'd say that a Pola and ND grad, and some sort of simple filter for mildly softening a close-up in an emergency, like a 1/4 Classic Soft or 1/2 Soft-FX.
If I wanted a diffused look for the whole project, if that was a possibility I had to prepare for, then I'd add a 1/8 & 1/4 ProMist or a 1 & 2 GlimmerGlass.
Favorite all-time effect filter is the 2 Fog, just because it was Geoffrey Unsworth's favorite filter. Have never found a use for one, but I have occasionally used a 1/2 Fog and even that seems heavy by today's standards.
A new favorite which I may start always carrying is the 1 & 2 Smoque, because it helps make inserts match smoked wide shots, plus has a pretty look similar to a cross between an UltraCon and Double-Fog.

So what is your point?
You are promoting dolly products on a thread entitled "4 favourite filters". I am glad you have a good business and wish you all the best but the company icons to the right have paid for the right to advertise (and help the upkeep of this site) and yet they havent chosen to post random messages on unconnected threads.
Ive heard that people use two polorisers sometimes as a form of ND. Is this a windup or is there fact in this?

1) Antique Suedes (usually #1)
2) Chocolates (#2)
3) Promist (1/2-1)
4) Fog (for a really good halo)
