Lots of different layouts out there and they all have pros/cons...
Will you be walking in with it, carrying it long distance, or transporting by boat/atv/truck right to the spot? How big a deal is comfort to you? Bare ground, winter wheat, grass/pasture land?
These are items that play a factor for me when deciding which layout blind to go with. I have several different types that I use depending on the situation.
I have the MoMarsh Invisilay for those times when hunting shallow water with low cover, such as flooded smartweed.
I have FA Eliminator Express....easy set up, lightweight, and the one i probably use the most.
I have Avery Finisher...more comfortable, a little bit of a pain to set up and heavy
I have Avery Power Hunter....hate this blind...do not recommend
Then I have used the Lucky Ducker type that is just a backboard with a sheet...this one is extremely easy to set up, very lightweight, and has worked well. Will be adding these to the arsenal.
As far as color goes....I have both, khaki and camo. I don't see a difference and don't really care. I mud my blinds heavily to get the shine off and once that is done it is hard to tell much of a difference, especially after a season of use. No matter what color blind you buy, you will need to mud it. I always mud new blinds well before season and will continue to mud them. I will also mud them a few times throughout season with mud from the area I am hunting.
