    Unlike muslins I've purchased in the past, this one came in its own bag, which is a real bonus. It has two sets of attachment points, too, so you can use a bar or rings to hang it. This muslin has a wonderful marble pattern to it, and is nearly neutral in color. The only downside is that it doesn't iron well, and holds wrinkles, so hang it early to let it relax.

            Excellent quality for the price. It's a lot heavier than the thin muslin that comes in the backdrop kits. My only complaint is the color is listed as slate gray and in reality it's a lot more blue than gray.

            Comments about Backdrop Alley Muslin Background (10 x 12', Slate Gray):

            It looks light blue when you get it but once you white balance with a good graycard it picks up beautifully. It's a good blend of mottled portrait style pattern but not too busy or distracting. It reflects the colors of your lights quite accurately as well. If anything it'd be nice to have it a tad thicker to prevent wrinkles but you still need to steam iron it a bit once its hanged to get it smooth. Overall a great product for the money.

                I've used gels to throw different colors on this backdrop and have been very happy with how it picks them up. Or you can go with no light on it for a nice simple gray mottled background.

                  I use this as an easy, portable backdrop, ready to take anywhere. Love having the grommets on one side to put through screws or the clips on a dry erase board, and the sleeve on the opposite side to run a PVC pipe through. I would prefer to have the grommets on the 12' side for wider group shots instead of on the 10' side, but it may be fine on the 10' side for others. Price point is very good for this muslin.

                      I purchased this mulsin looking for a good all around background of decent size and price. This seems to fir the bill. I washed to remove the bad rinkles and it was good to go. The smaller rinkles are easily hidden by the pattern. The quality seems nice however I feel any backlighting of the muslin could be a problem. It's heavey enough that the eyes hold it well and alow it to hang flat. My only complaint would be that it is a little on the blue side, but then I guess slate grey leans a little blue.

                        I have always been a user of paper backdrops simply because I meet have to iron or steam the backdrops, so I have always stayed away from muslin backdrops. I recently had a shoot scheduled where I needed to setup a studio backdrop away from my studio so I needed to find something more portable.
                        I was very pleased with my results. The backdrop did not wrinkle easily and it even came with a carrying bag for easy portability. I used the backdrop for a church directory and when lit well, it has a great, subtle look.

                                    This Muslin background is well made and looks great! The color scheme looks nice in the picture online, but the actual product is nicer. If you are looking for a grey to add to your collection, this is it, at a nice price point too!

                                      The 10 x 12' Slate Gray Muslin is actually the fourth Backdrop Alley backdrop I've purchased. It's the second I've bought of this exact type.

                                      I keep one backdop setup permanently to photograph musical artists who frequently visit a local radio station.

                                      The others are so easy to store and quick to setup, I carry 'em around all the time - events, indoor sport team shoots, etc.

                                      The quality of the fabric along with the eyelets and generous hem make them easy to use on any portable or permanent backdrop support system.

                                      Good stuff. Good Price. Have four, will have more.

                                        Great background, really nice looking and looked great in pictures. Did have a few little snags in the material but they did not show up in photos.
