Product Details

This umbrella with removable cover is a great portable way to really soften or reflect light from a flash or strobe. With the cover in place, easily bounce light. Remove the cover for instant diffusion. Westcott has been building umbrellas for over 110 years and were the first to bring the collapsible telescoping shaft to the photo industry. This all-metal shaft collapses down to only 14.5" making it small enough to fit into a backpack or gear bag.

Umbrella tips are constructed of all metal and are finished with an 8-count thread pass providing quality construction and product durability. The hexagonal design of this umbrella shaft provides 3x the strength of a normal round shaft.

For over 112 years, Westcott fabrics are produced using high quality materials and offer a standard one-year warranty against manufacturers defects. The included nylon travel case helps protect your umbrella from getting dirty or stained. In addition, a BONUS PVC style carry case provides for an extra layer of protection from your umbrella getting stained or damaged.

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.
