    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 would buy this Reversible Background again

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

      I hung this reversible background from a Muslin mover system. " A track that is mounted to the ceiling".

      The material is thin enough to take up less space when it is pulled to one side like a curtain. It's light and moves easily in the track.

      The not so great part: When I removed the material from the package it had some hard creases. It took a very long time to iron them out before I could hang the material.

      To keep the backdrop spread out flat, it would be easier if the material had more grommets on the top to hang from. One for every foot. It has one every two foot apart.

      Very nice color on this background. It is reversible which is nice cause it cuts down on the bulk if you have to carry. It is part of the kit with the stand which is also a very nice value.

        I use the muslin backdrops for small music stage use. They are perfect for helping the stage area become the focal point of the room. And the backdrop(s) are a perfect photo background for performing musician photos.
        Highly recommended.

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

          For startup photogs or those on a budget, I'd highly recommend Impact's 10x12 reversible backdrop. Granted, the creases are a bit of a nuisance when first unpacked, but they can be dealt with via Photoshop or shallow DOF. Material is very strong, there's a pole tunnel built into the backdrop's shorter edge, and it also has eyelets for hangers if you choose to go that route. Absolutely no complaints!

                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.

                  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.

                            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.

                            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.
