Very easy set up and take down.

This is my fourth ground blind. I was going to go with a high end model but glad I got this and saved money. Windows are simple triangles of material that are totally silent to open or close. They hook up with a simple elastic strap to a T handle. I like this design better than my other blind that uses magnets on a large curtain. The windows on this thing give some options as I only want some windows open not all. This keeps the light out and dark inside (and some smells in) Note: There is no window in the back as this is NOT a 360 shooter (not an issue for me).

Set up is easy, take down - once you figure it out it is easy but save the directions as there is a trick. I've had one heavy snow that did colabse the roof, but most times it holds up. I will tie the roof to an overhanging rope (tied between two trees) as all my blinds tend to fall in with heavy snow. It's moderately rainproof inside but this is not a building - Nothing a hunter will mind - small drips but hey your hunting and mostly protected

keeps the most of the wind out.

Shoot thru mesh is held on tightly by velcro. I read that others complained about the loud windows - not sure why they were taking the velcro off - it's shoot thru windows. You will need fix broadheads - mechanical will spring open as they pass thru the mesh. For a firearem - I would slice a grove with a razor and slip the gun out. I bet you could 'shoot' thru the mesh but it would be loud and would melt the mesh a bit.

Comes with some ground states and tie down cords. All an all good value. I did my research and found this to be the best value for the cost. Happy with purchase.

I shoot bow and my boys shoot crossbow off a rest out of this. Plenty of room for either.

Used it for the 2013 Rifle Season Deer Hunt in Seminole Oklahoma (Mid November). A couple days into the hunt I had a flock of turkeys come in and walk all around the blind foraging off the ground. Turkeys hear for crap but see better than about any other animal. With the camo mesh that comes already on the blinds windows the turkeys never saw me, even when I held my droid phone right up to the mesh to video them. I even waved my hands at them and they didn't see me.

I'm 5ft10in and can almost stand completely up, my head has to bend down. Put it up about a week before the season started and it is still up now after a month. It has went through a really bad sleet and snow storm and is still standing fine. The temp during the hunt was around 15-20 degrees Fahrenheit and I used a small propane heater to keep it somewhat warm on the inside, with the windows only open on the top half. Sprayed the outside down with scent killer each morning and scent was never an issue.

Was able to fit myself (about 300lbs) and a 16 year old boy both of us sitting in camp chairs and both of us had no problems killing a nice buck out of it with our rifles. Both bucks, 9 other does, a flock of turkeys, a bobcat, and numerous crows and other birds all got within 5 yards of the blind and while they obviously knew it was not natural became used to it and ignored it after the first day. My buck was shot ten yards away and the 16 year old's boy was about 15 yards away,

Hopefully they are selling these next year as I will buy another for a second hunting site.

PS - Here is a video of that flock of turkeys with my waving at them and holding the phone up to the mesh:

Great value for the money spent. Very large and sets up easily. Only gave it 4 stars because the door opening is somewhat small and on the corner seam and no "shoot thru" hole in mesh windows for firearms hunter. A sharp knife will cure that. Sprayed it down with waterproofing, UV killer, and scent killer. Dried it and packed away for setup a month before opening day.

I went back on forth on a few blinds and finally settled on this one. Really great blind durable material easy to set up and take down. Only bad thing is velcro on windows is very loud. This blind is very roomy and will last me for years to come.

This blind met all my expectations.Very easy set up and take down. My son and I shot two nice bucks from this blind. Comfortable enough for two people. The netting could use slits to point a rifle through, the velcro is very noisy. All around good buy.

I just got this blind today and haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I set it up at home and have a few comments. First - I was hesitant to buy this blind because of the camo pattern. What's shown in the photo isn't that appealing to me. THANKFULLY, it actually comes in Realtree AP, printed in high resolution and a much larger scale then shown in photo (the tree branches are proper scale). It's MUCH better than what's pictured. The fabric looks very wear resistant and has two layers. The outer layer looks like a quality suitcase type fabric - some type heavy weave nylon cordura. The inner layer is a non permeable coating of what appears to be black vinyl. This is great because it looks to be very weather proof and will prevent scent from escaping except maybe through the windows. Of course this quality comes at the price of weight. Though it's a little lighter than my summit tree stand, I would not want to lug this thing several miles. It comes with a black case with backpack straps.

The windows are shoot through, printed camo, mesh on the outside and adjustable panels on the inside that are made from the same fabric as the rest of the shell. I woudn't shoot through them with a shotgun, but a rifle or fixed blad broad head would be okay. They are NOT velcro'd on. They use a silent loop fastener system. They can be easily adjusted to just expose the area you want to see and shoot toward. You don't have to open them all the way. The window height is just right so that when sitting on a stool and aiming at the ground, you should have a clear shot.

I could stand and shoot through it, but I would have to hunch slightly. It's big enough for me and my son, me and my dog and maybe a little cozy for me and another adult, but doable.
