    my favorite blind was an "Easy Up" blind.
    its really compact when folded down.

    You custom fit it to what suits you.

    I don't know if they are still in business or not.

    If you're referring to "Pop Up" blinds out of Nebraska, then I believe they are still in business.

    A lot of people like them but it's not my style.

    I’m guessing he talking about the actual Easy Up blind. If you Google it, you can see some photos/videos of it.

    Yep I stand corrected! Looks like a solid design.

    We only hunt boat blinds.....I've been in all of them....the "scissor" blind design, like Avery uses, really can't be beat. We have 2 rolls of grass on plastic backing that we add when the blind is set up to make it taller. Once that's done, we can just sit and watch without fear of being busted. Nothing to flip down to shoot....just stand up and go. Deadly (at least for the guys I hunt with, but I'm sure this next season will be the one that I finally kill a duck).

    We've hunted the last 4 seasons out of the Avery blind on the Platte in NE from a 16' river jon. The river is wide open and subject to the elements here and the blind has held up well. If you get the black rain fly liner it helps keep wind out and the blind surprisingly holds heat well. Pops down for traveling just make sure its folded inside the boat and not hangin over the side.

    Not trying to sell you on the Avery Quick-Set, but:
    1) Sets up in about 30 seconds once you've done it a few times. (Tip: when hunting alone, only ser up the back)
    2) Mine was put on in '97, and it's still rolling. Travelled a whole lot of miles in that time without issue.
    3) Grass mats can be easily attached to the main rail. Grif's tip about plastic backing is solid.
