Default Biggest Pop Up Blind on the Market?

Looking to get a pop up blind to put on an elevated platform to hunt out of this year. Whats the largest out there currently? If all else fails, ill order a double bull but seeing if anything has a larger footprint that I dont know about. Bigger the better.

Thanks guys

Me too. Plenty tall for my longbow - with a compound you can probably shoot standing up.

I have not found one I like. Bass pro blackout x300 is the perfect size and shape, but poorly constructed. I currently have a Barronett pentagon blind set up and I'm not a fan of the layout. The windows suck and are too low. I've had several others over the years that I can't remember the brands of and always opted for the biggest footprint I could find. I like extra space in there because we use it when the weather sucks and there is nearly always at least 2 people in there. When this one craps the bed, and it will, I will build a wooden blind or buy something like a Krivo.

I'm on my 5th popup in this one spot. Should have spent that money on a more permanent blind.

I just bought a black out. It's huge and it has the vertical windows to enable elevated shooting. BPS had them for $175

Save your money on pop ups for several years and buy a Krivoman. Last forever.

I like my xenek. I'm not sure how much larger it is than others, but it is taller than a matrix.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll take a look! Ideally I'll have this pop up set up just for this season and then ill be turnung it into a box blibd or putting a krivoman on top. Kind of a last minute idea since I won't have enough time to do it all this year

Ken had one at the lease called the garage I Think. It was massive! You could put a cot in there and still have lots of room! I just sent him a text. It is called The Garage from Cabela's.

Thanks for asking bud, doesnt seem like they make that model anymore.

Im gonna make one last trip to cabelas this week to check some out in person but looks like the best value will be either the pentagon or grounder 350 from Barronnet.

Thanks for all the suggestions fellas

this..finally convinced my dad to join the club after going through 5 pop ups. They have their spot but not as a semi permanent blind...after further reading looks like you already have the plan in affect

Baronett.

Their blinds are very well made and will last many seasons.

Well unless a big arse oak limb falls on top of it.

Just ordered a replacement.

the baronett ox 5 blind is huge. I just got one. The windows are highly adjustable and seems to be a very solid pop up.
