    I have only played with it a couple times since getting it but my observations so far: The colors were close but not exactly like shown (the blue is very close but the reverse side is more gray which will work fine). It would be better if there were grommets on both the 10 and 12 foot sides (I already added them to the 12 foot for hanging ease). Plan on ironing it as soon as you pull it from the package. Now the great points- it is very durable feeling and even when steamed showed no sign of color loss. With studio lighting it takes on a very nice shade in photos. It is plenty long to pull away from the wall at the bottom and give a color base when shooting standing full length portraits. I would definitely suggest to friends looking for a backdrop to get one.

    I've just started using this background and am trying to figure out how to get out the wrinkles and creases. The material comes folded in a zippered, plastic pouch. Once unfolded, I noticed the creases and wrinkles and have not been able to remove them. Steaming didn't seem to work but it's possible the Shark steamer wasn't generating enough steam to de-wrinkle the material. The material itself seems plenty durable and is not flimsy. The rings along the top are interesting though the mounting system doesn't use them. But, the looped top makes inserting the cross bar simple and it stays nicely in place. The wrinkles are my main concern. How is one to transport the background material and get out the wrinkles before making use of it? It may be better suited as a fixed-location background where you can leave it hanging permanently in place.

      I like the color on this, seems well made. Material is thin but I expected that at this price.

        The color of the backdrop does not appear to be correct when you compare the backdrop to the on-line picture. However after setting it up and taking photos, the backdrop in the photos very closely match the pictures on-line.
        Wrinkles came out quickly with a fabric steamer.

          Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Stone Blue/Nickel):

          I bought this reversible background thinking it'd be really great to have two color options without taking up any more space but... it's really just the backside of the same one. The seam still shows at the top of the back and the color just looks like a faded version of the front. I like it for what it is but calling it "reversible" is a bit of a stretch. I'm not sure it's any different from a non-reversible background.

                Great backdrop. Love the reversible aspect. WIsh it had a sleve you can run the poles through instead of the holes. They don't quite match the hooks on the support system that is sold with this backdrop.

                    Does the job that I expected. 100% cotton muslin is always a fight with wrinkles after storage.

                    The zipper on the storage / carrying case broken as I was opening the package the first time.
