The Bowens Lumiair Octabox 140 is one of a new nine-model range of softboxes that have been created to carefully control the colour temperature of reflected light and have been designed to ensure that materials used in the construction do not fluoresce under UV light. The integral tension of Lumiair rods create the straightest edges possible for absolute control over light direction and shadow cut-off. The new, easily portable range targets users across all photo-disciplines and has been created to deliver ‘the highest quality and most efficient light possible’. All Lumiair softboxes have an optional ‘Soft Egg Crate’ (interlocking cloth strips) light control system available, ensuring a soft, directional and controlled light output.

Really nice quality of light for portraits but construction isn't up to the job.First one lasted me 7 months before it started to split at the seams by the speedring, replacement tore in the same place first time I used used it, about to send it back for another replacement. (WEX customer service is excellent.)I've used Bownes products for years and this isn't one of their finest products, quality control just isn't there, looks like they have issues with the stitching.Won't be buying any Bowens softboxes again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Quality Light Vs Build Quality
from Liverpool, UK
Purchased this item and unfortunately it arrived ripped down one seam. WEX were brilliant- fast replacement and excellent customer service.First usage taking the device down it ripped along the seam in a simalilar manner to the one that I had received damaged. The stitching is not fit for purpose and in my opinion needs to be reviewed by Bowens. I've been professional for almost 10 years now and have put up / down hundreds of softboxes with no issue so was dissapointed with what would otherwise be my go to modifier.That said, the light quality really is excellent and just what you would expect from a large softbox.I wouldn't recommend this is in its current form solely down to the issues with the seam stitching but when Bowens fix this, they are onto a winner. The included bag is useless to- far to small!
