The 36" Rapid Box Octa XL from Westcott is an octagonal light-shaping tool that is ideally suited to groups, portraiture, fashion work or any field that requires its signature wrap-around quality of light in the studio or on the road. The softbox features sturdy aluminum alloy framework and removable interior and front diffusion panels. The Rapid Box lives up to its name, thanks to its built-in Bowens speed ring and compact, shallow design. A carrying case with a shoulder strap is included for storage and transport.

    Rapid Box Octa XL for Bowens (36") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy- Great Diffusion= Awesome! This Wescott Octobox is a no brainer. It pops open with ease, snap in diffusion and with 2 minutes it is ready to go. I am a one woman band shooting video - mainly interviews - so a good keylight with an easy set up, portable, nice soft diffusion is a must and this dome delivers on all marks!!! I also got the deflector plate which spreads the light around the face so there are no hot spots. I recently purchased a Aputure LED video light with Bowens mount� and was looking for a good diffusion. Aputure has an amazing light but their dome option is less than user friendly with 16 rods to put together!!! Pay the extra $100 and get this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We purchased this mainly for use on location when doing corporate type people shots, head shots and the like. Using it with our Bowens Gemini lights. Haven't worked with soft boxes before at all, have always used umbrellas, but have definitely noticed the difference as compared to using umbrellas (which sort of throw light all over the place). The Octa is easy to put up, it takes only a minute or so, just a little bit longer than sticking an umbrella on to your light. The quality of the box seems very durable, setting uptakes no more than taking it out of its bag, undo the front velcroed bit, push and lock it into position and a gentle twist of the speed ring onto the light. Very happy after the three or four shoots we have used the octa on so far, hard to explain, soft light but still sharp shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Softbox! I really like my Rapid Box Octa XL. I've had it for several years and I use it both in studio and on location. It's fast and easy to set up and tear down. The only drawback is Westcott is not making available other speedrings like they did when it first came out. I've switched to Profoto and I can't change the speedring as the diameter of the flange is custom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this item again. In the short time I have had to use this softbox it appears to be exactly what I was looking for. The convenience of opening and closing quickly saves a great amount of time and looks professional. The concept is similar to an umbrella and folds pretty compact for easy transfer. The softness itself seems to be good so far. The ability to diffuse the light with two panels and the optional Deflector Plate which I also ordered also gives another lighting look. Comes with convenient carry bag. Cons? It states Aluminum Alloy but seems very thin and if accidentally mishandled or caught in wind before applying the front diffusion panel may not hold up? Pure speculation. A longer warranty of 2 years instead of 1 may help ease this concern. Overall happy thus far and I would recommend considering other options out there.
