Default Krivoman blinds

I’m thinking about buying two Krivoman blinds for the deer lease, does anybody that uses them have any complaints,or have a better recommendation? Thanks for your input

I do not think there is a better blind out there in the price range. I recommend the deluxe, the door and window upgrade on the deluxe is well worth the cost..

Very nice blind. IMO, the best for a rigid type bow blind.

There is not a better bow blind on the market. We've got 7, maybe 8 of them.

I love mine; had some problems with leaking windows and door at first but caulked all around them and put thin foam sealing tape on the windows and got it to stop. I use a battery powered fan for warm weather. I also put a floor vent in the floor near the front of the blind for better ventilation.

That floor vent is a good idea! I'd position it right under my cods. Good 'ol mobilehome vent would work perfect.

They get hot. Make sure you get it vented. You may also want to add a window or two. They are great blinds.

There is nothing on the site about a “deluxe” version to avoid the window leaks.

I've got one that I've had for a few months (I bought it late summer of last year). I like it. It's plenty comfortable and big enough for me and my kids in there. If it's cold outside a small heater will keep you nice and toasty.

I have not hunted in it when it was hot so I can't comment on that. Mine has a vent so I'm sure that will help.

I did put caulk around the outside of all the windows and door as soon as I set it up. Don't know that it would have leaked without me doing that but I figured what's a couple more dollars for caulking and a few minutes of my time gonna hurt. No problem on water getting in the stand.

I have four.

I like the four window version with the vent. That window setup seems to be the best for bowhunting IMO

The heat during October hunts is my only complaint. If you can put it in the shade, it would make a big difference. Mine is always in the sun. Besides that, it's great.

Does anyone know of some kind of UV resistant paint that you could spray on to reduce heat and slow the deteriorating process from the sun?

We have 4 and love them! Tinted windows a little more and made curtains from a black towel and wraparound lead decoy weight to cover up windows even more!

Yes but be sure to place some window screen material under it to keep the insects out! I also cut the small roof vent out and enlarged it to get more circulation. I have had no problem getting winded.

You take codfish with you to the blind?

They are awesome and will last a lifetime. They are also pretty easy to transport/move by one person.
