I don't know about them. I have never used any and I am a litttle leary of the Tyvek windsock products. Tyvek is great stuff for being durable but I tried it here with some envelope stuff to see what it was like and it was some noisy stuff in the wind. I had thoughts of a couple of dozen of them tings making a hell of a racket in the wind.

Also won't socks mold all up of your hunting in the rain when you try and pack them up? Or do you have to set them up in the yard to dry them out?

I've got 7 dozen currently and another 3 dozen coming.

The Sillosock is a silo head with a windsock body.

I bought one dozen last year ( plastic bag type) and really liked them so I ordered up 6 dozen of the tyvek ones. They have an inner plastic bag to help them maintain there shape.

I only got to use them once so far this season. I had them set up with some G&H Fullbodies and from 20+ yards away, they looked pretty much like the fullbodies but with the motion. They do cost more than rags but I like them a WHOLE LOT BETTER. I sold all my rags and will slowly build up my spread with these. I may even eventually sell all my silos and go with these and a dozen fullbodies exclusively.

The silo portion is made of coroplast.

Tyvek windsocks are good.. I have 30 dozen... had them for years...
I even WASH mine in the machine every other year..

you just have to make sure that they don't rub corn stalks... It willwear a hole in them.. duct tape patches them well

I have hunted with someone who owns some before and we saw a single decoying goose he was ready to commit but he spotted the socks and flared no shot. I would go with alot of silohoutes because I have seen my spread at a distance and it looked very realistic. :salude:
