Default Questions on Popup blinds glare

Do all new popup blinds reflect light or have a glare. I have an older Ameristep Backstrap . That had more of a camouflage denim. And didn’t have any glare. Do they still make any blinds like this. Which blinds are you using that doesn’t have glaring material. Thanks

I have 3 of the Rhino 600 blinds and one is 8 yrs old and still going strong.
But there are a few other brands that are just as good like the Primos double bull, and the Xenek which are all on sale at a great price right now.
There was a thread posted earlier today that Jason Smart had links to the discounted deals.

you can take care of that glare by mixing a couple of shovels of dirt in a half of a 5 gallon bucket of water. Then take a broom and "paint" the blind. When it dries it will match the surroundings better and less light will get through. Waterfowlers have been doing this to layout blinds and field decoys for years. It works.

I know of a few guys that will hit their blinds with a can of flat paint - black, brown, or gray. Just a dusting can knock off the sheen some fabrics put off.
