: Blind Material

I'm going to have the wife sew me a couple custom 4 pole blinds blinds (similar to the Butch Green's, they're great). Does anyone have any info on where to get some quality camo material that would hold up to the everyday beatings that a dog blind takes? Hopefully a nylon product? Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Here is one I found. I know Macks has some other bulk material available. Our club had some sewn up and they used 1/2" round bar welded with a U shape stake on the end.

Hope this helps!

Check and search for camo cordura. They have great prices and cordura will definitely hold up to abuse. It's also waterproof and windproof.

It's not camo but I just made 4 blinds using 3 poles ( Rebar) welded a step on them ( so they look like an h )
I used heavy canvas Dk Green Tarp 5' X 7' from a farm store 15.99
They have eyelets sewn in and I zip-tied to my poles
so I have about $20 per blind

Good Luck

BTW I have used several other materials and none lasted more than 1 season, the die cut nylon camo (Hunter Specialties), nylap, burlap all failed to withstand the heavy use. I expect the Canvas tarp to last 3-5 years
