Blind Bags

Postby LouisianaFowler » Wed Oct 14, 2009 8:27 am

Who makes a good blind bag? I need one around 20" long 12" high 10 or 12" wide. I have ran out of room agian and I am tired of taking two bags and still having to carry stuff.
I like duck hunting...

Check out the Cabelas bags, they make three sizes at good fair prices. They are very well made and contain everything a waterfowl hunter needs in a bag.

x2 although I would consider looking at Drake's bag too if I were in the market...I have yet to be disappointed with one of their products.

I have been looking at bags online and in stores, and am undecided on an over the shoulder style or a backpack. Wouldnt a backpack allow for hands free and be a better choice? But there are so few backpacks that there must be something to the shoulder that I am missing. Your thoughts?

Blind bags, per se, are a common gift at our lodge, but after 20-some years of hunting virtually every open season day, I just pass 'em along. I use a plastic ammo box for wet work or when I'll want a seat and a German army surplus day pack (small backpack) for dry work.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I got a bag cabelas a few years back and it is a blind bag/roll top combo made with very heavy materials and waterproof zippers.It was the best bag that I have ever used beat the avery ones I have hands down.I often hunt flooded marsh and just set the bag down where ever I hunt in the water and have never gotten the contents wet from that or rain.It was 100% waterproof,but the top that covers the roll top portion ripped and it has developed a small hole in the bottom that was an easy fix.Now I have been looking to get a new one and they do not carry that line of products anymore.Beretta has the xtrema bags which are good but they are not cheap .

Personally I like the FA bags. They make about ten different blind bags and they all come in Max-4 or MODB. They have one for everyone as far as im concerned.

All we use are the large dry boxes, basically a plastic ammo carrier.
Totally waterproof, you can sit on it, and will float if you don't have it filled with ammo.

do the cabelas bags have any inside pockets in the main compartment? It doesnt say on the description but I see the drake bag has quite a few.

Does anyone have a picture of the drake blind bag (large or XL) with say a box of shells in it or a decoy next to it for a size reference? I am trying to decide what size I am going to purchase, and the measurements on paper and pictures on the website just are not doing it for me. Thanks!

No pockets so to speak but there is a liner that divides the bag up into about 6 parts around the perimeter and the middle is open.

Do you all prefer the floating blind bags or regular fabric?
