Will be crossbow hunting from a pop up.
What's a well made, quiet and roomy blind?
So many to choose from. Had a gorrila blind but wasn't quiet, didn't like the Velcro on the mesh screens.

PitchForkPredator on here recently got a couple Cabelas XL blinds I believe they are well made and very quiet and roomy. Im sure he will chime in with details but there is no velcro and only zipper is on the door.

It's the Cabela's Zonz model in XL size @ $179.99.

I've owned quite a few different brands including Double Bull and it is on par with Double Bull except not as thick of material.

Other than that, it's more roomy in width and height. Silent slide windows and hooks for the screen not velcro. A great blind for the money. But it's not gonna last left out for months at a time, but none of them do. I looked at Barronet 350 as well which is cheaper and a good value, but it doesn't have the silent slide adjustable height windows and the mesh screen is velcro attached which I agree is noisy.

Went with the Rhino blind. Only because I hear it is made to last. Bit more $$$, hope I made the right choice.

Loc: The last LF ranch in S. Texas
Just purchased a Barronet "Big Mike" popup blind for $149 from Dicks.
I hunted last couple of seasons with a $99 Ameristep that is still in great shape. I left it up thru the entire bow season and rifle season in the shade and it's still in great shape with just very little fading.
I think the important thing is shade and anchoring it down so strong winds don't wreck the blind.
The problem with my old blind was not enough room to draw and shoot from different angles with my recurve. I had basically one direction I could shoot out of, so hopefully the larger blind should be many times better.

The Herters XL from Cabela's is super quiet and it's relatively cheap.

Since you don't have to draw get the smallest one you can find. Much easier to hide and set up.
