I plan to purchase Lexan windows for my blinds but I'm undecided if I should add a tint in grey or bronze. I've always used clear windows and added light camo curtains to break out my outline.

I will be doing pig hunting throughout the year.

I'm curious on what tint, if any, folks are using and the benefit.

Thanks!

I ordered Lexan with grey tint to cover 6 windows.

Both of my stands are tinted, and I like it for the most part. The only drawback is having to open the windows at first and last light to really be able to see. A couple of those bone chilling days we had last year, I really wasn't in the mood to have a window open.

I think clear windows with a shoot-through type fabric are probably the way to go.

Thanks for the feedback.

The tint cuts light by 50% so winter mornings and evenings I'll wish I had clear windows. Maybe I'll purchase clear Lexan for my front windows as we approach deer season.

A place I used to hunt had clear lexan on the outside window, and had some of the tinted panels on the inside. You could open or close them independently. Was a neat set up and kept you from having the cold blow in early and late, and still had the option for the tinted during the sunlight hours.

Only draw back was having to buy the extra panels.
