The Westcott 5 x 7' Mist X-Drop Background System is a lightweight package that is perfect for travel. At a little over 5.3 lbs, this kit can be used for headshots, product photography, weddings or general commercial photography in the studio or on location. The 100% polyester fabric comes with grommet holes on the top and bottom for easy hanging and that also eliminates the need to establish a top or bottom orientation. When it gets dirty, it's readily machine washable in cold water and tumble dried on "low."
The background support system is characterized by quick setup and tear down capability. It is lightweight and contains telescopic legs and arms that will hold the fabric taut. The expandable carrying case is capable of holding the X-Drop System as well as up to three backdrops.

This product is quite easy to setup, but the footprint for the stand is rather large. The frame is also a bit fragile, but with proper care should survive. Shouldn't be too difficult to make a standard black and a std white backdrop with some fabric and a few grommets. The background that I received has a pattern that repeats a bit too frequently, but will be OK for many applications. Liking the transportability factor. Also will serve well in my in-home studio when I want to do a single subject portrait without having to setup the 10X20 rig. Used it twice thus far with great success.
Fast, light weight, one hand operation backdrop that can be set up almost any where. The drops are wrinkle free and they give a Big Bang to portraits in a complimentary way. On the down side I have heavy hands so it feels almost to fragile ...maybe if they put a little more stock in the frame in would be closer to a perfect product.
Very easy to set up and easy to purchase fabric at the store, install some gromets and make your own backdrops at a fraction of the manufacturres price. But you need the stand and at least one backdrop to get started.
Seems a little flimsy but the setup is fast and does the job that I was looking for. It is much easier then bringing stands and a cross bar.
