Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob44 Hunt rainy, windy weather!
I bought this product strictly to bow hunt wild hogs. They are almost 100% nocturnal and show up in all weather conditions. This double ladder stand shelter will keep the wind and most of the rain off of you. This allows for a longer sit during cold wet weather. A longer sit can lead to more hogs on the ground. It does not appear to frighten deer or hogs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vinnie Had to purchase an outpost Elite Treestand Kit
Well this purchase might be a case of good money chasing bad but I needed to buy two kits to replace the originals that came with the stands. I have 160 Acres and place double tree stands strategically around my farm for flexibility. The stands and the associated blinds I purchased several years ago have worn well. However, out of the box the zippers fell apart on two stands I purchased a couple years ago while zipping the windows shut. The zippers themselves are cheap aluminum that break under normal use. Aside from the cheap zippers the roof leaks quite a bit. Take clear pro-seal and spray the roof from the inside to stop the drip. Also, as you can see from the picture, light can silhouette the occupant from the back. Being noticed while hunting is obviously what you want to prevent while hunting and that defeats the purpose of the blind. I take a rain jacket and tuck it over the top of the roof rail and place the arms on the outside of the blind. It works very well. It should be redesigned with a flap rolled up in the back of the ceiling that fastens to the back of the blind below the gap that silhouettes the occupants. It could be fastened with buttons or Velcro. Personally I prefer buttons since Velcro can stick to clothing and is loud when hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris BEST BLIND!
This blind is easy to set up. Do yourself a favor and pick up a few camo ratchet straps. The pull straps are ok, but in a treestand, you can create the leverage needed to lock this unit down to the tree without a lot of effort.
Other than that, it's quiet, keeps the wind and elements off of you, and fits any double-ladder-two-man-stand out there. Best $100 I ever spent on hunting equipment.
I just purchased a "little Buddy Heater" and I was warm and comfortable all day in the snow and freezing rain. Buy this now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by deerslayer easy set up
This was a much needed cover for both safety and keeping warm. It was easy to set up but would have been better it there were rachet fasteners instead of pull straps to keep it in place. It tends to slide loose/down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skipe great blind
Sets up simple and was easy to hang. Has made it through some windy days so far. I hunt bow and side windows are good hard to shoot out front and blind is flimzy if u dont leave stand shooting rail down which my kids cant shoot . past. Perfet for gun or crossbow though. All in all I love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by bad habit Good purchase
We love this kit except it took 2 of us to put the roof up and had to put extra straps on it to hold it up. Once it is up it is perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oleblkjck Good product, only one complaint.
I like everything about this except, the strap provided to anchor blind bracket to tree is a cinch strap that doesn't hold tight enough to support the bracket to the tree let alone" the added weight of the enclosure". I had to leave woods and purchase a ratchet strap to tighten the bracket properly... So if you purchase this, bring a small ratchet strap along to avoid a headache..
