Do any of you guys have the power hunter? If so tell me how you like it, weather or not you put you're gun in the blind with you, how the flip top works, and overall how you like it.

I hated mine. I couldn't kill anything out of it. Sure it's the lightest and easiest to set up, but it sucks getting in and out of it with the velcro, especially with waders. People say if you don't like the flip top, to leave it open, well that defeats the purpose of the layout blind, so if you are going to do that, return it, get your money back, and save some money by buying burlap, becauset hat's pretty much all you'll have when you take the top off. I hunted out of mine for a few hunts and couldn't see through the mesh, even on close range honkers, so I returned it and bought a finisher. Best buy I've made so far.

At first I had the Avery Fieldhouse blind. It was not
as easy to setup/takedown as they showed on the
box. I "upgraded" to the Power Hunter. Lightweight/
portability was important for me because we
walk in to our hunting spots. Your gun will be on
the outside of the blind kindof on your lap. If
you are above average on height/weight then it
probably isn't the blind for you. Vision is
slightly obstructed compared to migrator type
blinds but that just takes getting use to. The
flip top is pushed up and it ends up behind the
hunter. Maybe the best way to describe it is
hunting in a camo sleeping bag with a camo net
over your upper body with a back rest. I don't think
you will find a blind for the same price that works any
better.

had one and hated it bought a finisher and love it, and the whole gun part we love hunting in the nasty days were its snowing and sleeting and everything else and leaving your gun outside sucks with the finisher it will stay as dry as you do in those days which is a great thing

Powerhunter=Crap

Go with either a finisher, xlander, or something similar. Well worth the extra money. Advice given previously is right on the money. I learned after buying a power hunter, selling it to get an xlander. Roger's Sporting Goods had Khaki SUBs for 139 I believe.
