For $5 more I'm going to just buy an office chair from Office Depot or somewhere and use it in the ground blind. A lot more comfortable but it will be harder to transport. It just has to be out there for a few days in a ground blind anyway and then just take them back and store them in the lodge.
That's a good idea with the office depot chair. Most Gamewinner stuff IS NOT BAD, but it is basically the cheapest hunting stuff on the market so I figure don't complain. (unless there is reason to like in the OP's case) cause you know what you're buying. You all know the rhyme, you get what you pay for.
A lot of comparable game winner gear can be found at REI or Whole Earth Provisions. It won't be camo but serves the same purpose. It's priced significantly higher, cause it's not the cheapest gear on the market.
I have some game winner gear. It serves it's purpose for me. yes I love Academy, been shopping there all my life. But I tell you what if Academy did not have the great return policy it does have, I would be one of the first in line to roast them like a stuck duck. I've spent gobs of money there over the years. GOBS! Their gamewinner gear fills a space many are happy for including me. If they don't return something of theirs they should (which I doubt would happen) take it to management and I doubt you'll be disappointed.
Thank you Academy Sports and Outdoors for all the years of great products and great service. (you owe me for the plug) j/k
