Anyone use them?
Look like a good blind, and they're local to me, but wouldn't mind some reviews if y'all have them.

I've got two. a 5x8 on a tower and a 4x6 on the ground. Pros - We got lots and lots of rain last year. They stayed dry. Cons - I would like bigger stairs. I need one more and they are on my list as first choice.

I bought the 5x8 and fabricated my own base for my needs. I've had it up for 1 year and checked it out last week; no leaks, all interior carpet is holding up and the paint has not faded in the S TX sun. The only thing I would change if I were the manufacturer are the windows, I'd like to see a true slider instead of the plexi in a groove. I'd be willing to bet that a strong wind will blow these open. Other than that for the price point you can't beat it.

I looked at them today, the 5x6 is a lot more roomier than the 4x6.
The inside is really nice, they have a board that makes a shelf, and one as an elbow rest.

He also said they've never had problems with the plexiglass windows sliding open in the wind.
If they're competitive, I'll probably be picking up a couple. Wasn't a fan of their ladder base kit price though.

So, share some prices with us! They look interesting, and the comments are predominantly favorable; tell us what it would cost to put one into service.

Also, here's their stair ladder kit. The platform can be adjusted to the deer frame height, so it's not that big of a drop out of the blind to the platform.

Yep, that was the skinny steps that I was talking about when I said I wanted bigger stairs. But to be fair, I have never slipped on the stairs.
And I adjusted the platform on mine. It is 4-6 inches from the bottom of the door.
The cost has gone up some. Two years ago when I bought mine they were both $200 cheaper than today.

Since April I can't tell you how many blinds I've looked at. These were on the final list....the two things that got it nixed, the roof and the windows. I didn't like either. If that doesn't bother you, I think they are nice blinds.

the roof is actually a great thing, because of the "A" frame design, they have two large shelves at each end that is above your head. Makes great storage for items, so they are not on the floor. I did not like windows either as all my previous blinds had real glass, but I have really had no problem with any of the windows in the two blinds that I have.

What I liked about the windows is you can sit with the windows closed until you're ready to shoot. You then just slide a window open 6" and done.
With the 5x6 and a frame, it has a lot of room to stand up in.

I bought the 5x8 last December. It's held up well - still smells like new when I get in it. I've been amazed each time I get in - literally zero bugs in it. Built really well. Plenty of space and very quiet.

My only regret is not getting one with the drop down windows. I opted for the slide windows because it was the only one available at the closest dealer. Next one will have drop down.

I liked the idea of sliding over drop down for this. If you drop down, you have to drop all the way down. With sliding, you move it only how much you need.
