Top Positive Review


This tent is a good value for the price but it isn’t perfect.
Pro:
Compared to other tents in this price range the roof isn’t full of holes and will keep you relatively dry in the rain.

Plenty of room for two people with adequate height to stand up inside.

Strong structure. This tent has withstood two storms including a Nor’easter without collapsing.

The brush loops are handy for breaking up it’s shape with brush or grass.

Plenty of windows on sides and corners.

Cons.
There are a few things I don’t like about this tent.

The little hooks that keep the window flaps closed are weak. Two already popped off in the wind when the flaps were closed.

The zippers on the door are loud and must be waxed and opened/closed slowly to prevent too much noise.

The material is a bit shiny. It dulls with time.

My main dislike is the-shoot through screen. It is very hard to see through the screen when the sun is shining on it.
My tent is facing west and for about 20 minutes at the end of the day before sunset the sun is shining on it. I actually removed the main window screen to see better at that critical time of day. When the sun isn’t shining on it seeing through it isn’t a problem.

The tent has brush loops on the top edges. However, it would be nice if there were some on the sides.

And last but not least. The stakes supplied with these tents are useless. They are easily lost due to their black color and are short, thin and ineffective. If you are going to use them, at least spray paint them a bright color to make them easy to find. Better yet, when you buy the tent spend another ten bucks on some good tent pegs. The large yellow plastic ones work great here in the sandy soil.

All that said, Ive used this tent for a few weeks, have seen several deer while using it, some less than 20 feet away and for the price is worth the money.

I’ve used it now for the past month and its worked great. Set up was easy and secured to the ground. the two issues I have is once in and out hunting, as soon as the sun comes up, you see these little “stitching” holes all over with little beads of light entering. i thought maybe a product defect but my son also bought one with the same issues. I wish it actually had or offered one with a bottom since one day two weeks ago showing up at the blind at 4:30 am, i was confronted with a 5′ rattle snake taking refuge in there right below my chair. I advise everyone look inside good before entering in the dark. I also have pictures of the ceiling sweating after being inside for 4 hours from humidity

Customer Questions & Answers


Will it have brush in loops for better concealment?
Answer: The looped handles that are used to pop up the blind can be used for brush-in support.

I’m 6’2 how tall is this blind?
Answer: It is 67?? tall (5??7??). I??m a little over 6??0??; but the hinged door design makes it much easier to enter than other blinds. Once you??re in, even though you??ll have to stoop a bit until you get seated, you??ll find the blind is very roomy. My favorite Ameristep model so far.

is the mesh replaceable?
Answer: Don’t know….I bought 4 of them last fall, have not needed to replace any mesh yet ??

Is it warm?
Answer: No it??s not warm but it definitely helps from the wind and some cold , not suggesting for windy days. Other wise it??s great. Happy customer

Is ther openings on all four side to shoot form or just three ?
Answer: You have all four sides to shoot from, really like the set up.
