Product Details

The 43" Optical White Collapsible Umbrella is partnered with an 8' light stand and adjustable bracket for an essential on-the-go speedlite modification kit.

Building umbrellas for over 110 years, Westcott was the first to bring the collapsible telescoping shaft to the photo industry. This 43" umbrella's all-metal shaft collapses down to only 14.5", making it small enough to fit into a backpack or gear bag.The shaft is finished off with a 7mm tapered tip allowing for use with many specialty lights on the market. Some of these lights have a 7mm catch pin making them difficult to find modifiers that will work with them correctly. Our catch pin insures a perfect fit with most popular lights.

The hexagonal design of this umbrella shaft also provides 3x the strength of a normal round shaft. Pair this with the solid steel insert, and it's no wonder our umbrella shafts are some of the toughest in the market. Frame tips are constructed of all metal and are finished with an 8-count thread pass providing quality construction and product durability.

Working with some of the finest fabric mills worldwide for over 110 years, Westcott umbrellas also feature quality diffusion fabrics. Our fabrics are produced using superior materials and offer a standard one-year warranty against manufacturers defects. An included nylon travel case and additional PVC carry case help to protect your umbrella from getting dirty or stained. Simply add a flash to this inclusive kit for complete lighting both on-location and in-studio.

The Westcott Original

Since 1899, Westcott has been an industry-leading innovator of umbrellas. The inventor of the fiberglass umbrella frame, Westcott has continuously strived to develop the best umbrellas on the market. From improved framework to superior fabrics, Westcott's professional collapsible, parabolic, and standard umbrellas prove to be the essential modifier for all photographers.

Durable Structure

All of the current Westcott Pro Umbrellas (except for collapsible models) feature a lightweight fiberglass frame. These frames are strong and resist breaking while also providing flexibility. On many styles, this strength is backed by a solid steel center shaft, which provides a solid center for worry-free mounting. This steel shaft is 7mm—the most common umbrella mounting size for stands and brackets.

Premium Fabrics

From satin diffusers to highly-reflective surfaces, all Westcott Umbrellas are designed with high-quality fabrics. Soft and metallic silver umbrellas are laminated for protection. Optical diffusion umbrellas are built with white satin. Westcott places high importance on using quality materials, which ensures that the best fabrics are utilised for reflecting, softening, and diffusing light sources. All versions are available in a variety of sizes and in bundles—each featuring the same emphasis on precision craftsmanship.

Compact Options

Collapsing down to 14.5", Westcott Pro Collapsible Umbrellas create large light sources while still allowing for efficient storage and travel. These innovative modifiers can slip directly into a gear bag and are protected with an included nylon case.
