I'm not a big fan of blinds, to heavy and bulky to carry around, but they are usefull in certain areas and in the rain. What I use 90% of the time is a wrap around blind. They are light weight, easy to set up and cover your movements. I use a Gorilla blind which has 4 poles that adjust from 18" to 40" high, it gives you full vission and doesn't effect any sounds coming from the birds. It covers you playing calls, rasing your gun, shifting in your seat, it goes up and down quick, and is very portable. If I'm in light rain I use a tree stand umbrella with it, that straps to a tree and keeps you dry. The best thing about them are they fold up and stick in the back of your vest, so you have nothing to carry.
Just another opion for you to look at?
