What Blind bag

Postby team_reload » Mon Apr 29, 2013 7:34 pm

Looking for a blind bag for the upcoming season and I was wondering what everyone is using. I dont want anything to huge. Not really particular on brand as long as its made well. Thanks guys

I like cabelas ultimate as well but they switched the hardware from metal to plastic now. Not nearly the quality they used to be. Plastic sucks in the cold.

I got the Tanglefree Ultimate Backpack for Christmas and I love it! It's a great back with plenty of storage, big and small compartments. You can carry it on your back or carry it by the handle.

Avery power hunter if you do a lot of walk in hunting

I got the Avery floating bag. Able to fit everything I need in it and a couple other things too.

Whatever you go for, go small/med.....the larger the bag, the more obscure crap you bring because you "need" it...
I carry:
Granola bars
Calls
TP
Gloves
Shells
Phone
water
Coffee (small)

Avery Floating Blind or Finisher Bag is a good choice.

I typically hate Avery products, but the finisher blind bag has been the best I've owned. My Drake lasted all of 9 hunts before the carry straps pulled away from the bag.

My buddy and I use the Drake XL floating blind bag. I like being prepared since the guys I hunt with aren't. Mine feels like I packed an anvil next to his. Plenty of room to carry as much or as little as you want. Love it! :thumbsup:

Medium FA Layout blind bag. Durability wise has been great, will be my 3rd season and showing very little wear. I'll admit I got duped a little by thinking having the bag in the layout with me would be a convenience, but its holding up too well to just get a new one

Drake double banded dlind bag. Rubber bottom is nice when hunting in a wet blind or muddy corn field.

I have the smaller redhead blind bag. worked great for 2 seasons so far. I usually carry 2 boxes of ammo, gloves, hat, lights, para cord, cork for face cover, and snacks. all while not being too big. it was hard to find a decent blind bag that wasnt monsterous and didnt have 100 pockets or none at all.

Ok sorry for the delay. So I received the Drake Double band bag here a couple of weeks ago. First thing i noticed is how well it is made. There are a lot of pockets to keep all of you essentials in line along with some odds and ends. The bag is waterproof, floats, and has the Drake Spring open side pockets. The swamp sole on the botton is not a cheap hard plastic, its a soft, grippy rubber sole that assuming is glued on but it is also sewn on. I bought the "large" size and it will provide more than enough room. I hunt out of a Finisher so space is slightly limited......I guess........ anyway the extra large back i feel would have been to big. I was skeptical about the price but after receiving the bag i feel confident the bag will last a long time. Let me know if you have any questions but im sure if someone gets this bag they will be very happy with it

Really happy with my Rig Em Right Shell Shocker bag. Has lots of pockets and organized well. Seems to be well made. The sunglasses pocket and the pocket for a drink or thermos are great options.

I have a Rig em Right shell shocker as well. I have to say, that it is very well built. There are almost too many pockets to use if that is possible. It makes organizing easy. The waterproof liner pockets are nice to for id/licences/spare batteries. The built in hard case for sunglasses is a nice touch as well.
