Neal, the problem with that type of vent is if you step on it, the vent will collapse and they are prone to filling up with dust and clogging air flow. I like the rigid vent better and it is available with a filter in it already.

Joe, you can get Cobra Roll Vent and put it under the metal ridge cap. You may have to trim it to fit. All it takes is a drill with a nut driver bit to remove the screws, install the roll vent, then put the metal ridge cap on. Cobra Roll Vent should be available at the big box stores.
