It's an affordable pop up blind and roomy . I normally use Ameristep blinds but everyone was sold out at the time. So i went to dicks and Purchase two of these blinds. First thing i notice was the room. Not bad for 2 people . But then i notice the magnets on the windows didn't line up with the blind. Any little breeze and the windows would fall . So I used heavy duty paper clips to hold them in place.That seemed to do the job. After a few windy days I went to the deer blind and found the support straps ripped out.The straps are sewn onto the side of the material on the blind and not very strong . Now there's a hole where the loop used to be and nothing to support the corner . Look for a blind with metal loops on the sides if you plan on leaving it set up for the season. I would advice spending the extra 30 to 40 dollars on a better built blind.

Best for someone looking for something they will use on occasion. I deer hunt from a climbing stand, and will only use this for Turkey season (Most likely).
Came in a big bag, wife said I looked like a ninja turtle when I put it on. Pretty lightweight. Pops up pretty easy. Seems roomy until I draw my bow. I max out the length when I draw. I would say 1 adult and a small child that you can stand to be close to. Top limb of bow hangs out a few inches. Could work good with a rifle/shotgun. I bow hunt only.
As others have stated, the window magnets are weak, bubble gum is stronger than them. Easy fix, buy a short roll of Velcro and put a small strip where the magnets are. The "shooting windows" are held by Velcro, they stay put. I have not tried to shoot through them,yet.
Collapsing it takes a little practice, I felt like I was going to break it, but it collapsed with ease.
Overall: Not a bad piece of kit if you have to pack your gear in and out of the woods everyhunt. The carrying bag has plenty of room if you want to drop a few things into it, i will put my turkey decoys in it.You get what you pay for, keep that in mind, if you expect gold, then buy something else. If you want something cheap that you can sit in and look at nature, than it will work. I'll have better info when turkey season starts.

It has lot of room but the magnets are no good. If you are not handy to puts new or add more managnets to fix the opening do not buy.

I have used this blind four times. I like they way it's compact and doesn't require any extra tent poles. But ,the magnets that are used to hold up the windows are sewn to far up and doesn't attach very well on three of the four windows. This is a problem in the slightest breeze.Would like to complain to the manufacturer ,but can't find a web site or 800 number.

Rated 1 out of 5 by All season Hunter No sipper adjustment for sight concealment !
This Ground blind only has magnets To hold up the window flap. Poor design And poorly made . Light snow or light winds blow down the window flap And that could ruin your day hunting. Don't waste your money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Highly_Disappointed Garbage!
This blind is a joke. Has magnets to keep window flaps closed that don't line up once blind is set up, same with the Velcro mesh once you open it it's virtually impossible to get reattached. I prefer to keep one or two sides closed to avoid silhouetting myself but if there is even a slight breeze the flaps fall. No way to keep inner (solid) flaps from being open completely I hunt with a rifle and prefer only a small opening. Blind is noisy and not user friendly unless you want to use it for a child's playhouse. Save your money. If you want a blind similar to this style find one with zippered openings a much better product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tills Easy to use
I purchased this for my kids 7 and 9 to hunt with daddy. They aren't ready for a tree stand and this gives them coverage on ground. The windows have camo flaps that close using magnets. The screens on the windows release using Velcro on top or bottom allowing the ability to remove or open just enough to shoot through. It comes with tie downs and spikes to hold in place. They love it.
I gave it a 4 simply because it does have a nice carry case that has straps to carry on your back-However, I am not sure how long the straps (although sturdy) are going to remain stitched on the case.

Seams of the carrying bag are week - bag ripped the first time I put it back in the bag. Have not put up in the woods yet - stay tuned for that feedback! I like the one action set up, just take it out of the bag, make sure you have the required ground space, and it almost srpings step back.into position.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BC this product needs instructions to fold up
This blind does set up quickly. It did take a while longer to fold back up.You need to pay attention when unfolding the blind the first time. It's a little tricky folding it inside it's self.Folding instructions would help. I use a crossbow and had enough room to pull up and shoot.
