The 5 x 7' black X-Drop Background from Westcott is a lightweight and wrinkle-resistant polyester/cotton backdrop that can be used for headshots, product photography, weddings or general commercial photography. It comes with a 2" pole pocket along the top edge and grommet holes on the top and bottom, allowing for easy hanging and eliminating the need to establish a top or bottom orientation. When it gets dirty, the backdrop can be machine-washed in cold water on a delicate cycle and tumble-dried on low. It's designed to work in conjunction with the Westcott X-Drop Background System, but will work on any suitable background support system.

              The Backdrop works just fine. The price is right -- the only downside is the frame -- it is a little flimsy. I also have a white backdrop that came with the frame. The backdrops are great for head shots.

                Good quality, soft cloth with low reflectivity. Seems rugged enough now, but I'll know more next year!

                    I had previously purchased the white kit for use as a backdrop/reflector/diffuser and decided I wanted the black version for an optional backdrop/flag.

                        Only thing I wish was that this was reversible with white on one side and black on the other. Other than that, it's a great backdrop.

                            very simple - not too much that can go wrong. I wish it wasn't the fleecy type fabric as it collects lint constantly.
