The blind is 59 inches from corner to corner, which is enough to hide you from in front but does leave you visible from the sides, so it helps to tuck it into cover a little bit. It does make a little noise when you pop it up. The other day, when I wanted to get in early on a bird roosted along a field edge, I popped the blind together at my truck and carried it into the field. Really, the only problem with the Stakeout Blind is that it’s so easy to use, I am getting dependent on it. I have to make myself leave it behind when it’s time to sit up against a tree and hunt turkeys the old-fashioned way.
