Good bang for the buck!!!

Date:September 9, 2010
Just picked it up today, for my wife during the archery season. Very easy setup just flatten out, align the top to bottom, pull the top up then the sides, put in the stakes and your set. Took me less the 10 minutes to set up (including staking down) and another hour to brush it in. Plus, it's a really good price, blacks the hunter out well, and gives you just as much ample room as competitors. I would have given it a 5 star but only time will tell about it's durability, wind/water resistant.

Selective Viewing Options & Great Features

Date:October 9, 2010
Fit and finish of this product is very nice, the main zipper is heavy duty with pulls from the top and bottom that meet in the middle. The shell is 300 denier and feels strong. Entry and exit is as easy as any other, once inside the interior is dark with window shades up with very little pin holing from stitches. Space enough for 2 gun hunters and very comfortable for 1 bow hunter at full draw. Windows have silent drop down shades that attach with elastic and plastic hook that anchors to sewn in hoops. I'm going to tie on larger string hoops for easier hook/release. Shades can be released half way and held in place by small velcro patches or let down for full viewing, nice feature. The mesh windows have 1/2" velcro around edges and can be adjusted to any size opening desired. corner windows are great. I would recommend presetting before hunting observing. A nice surprise is the 2 convenient sewn on interior mesh pouches for stowing small items. The TruTimber XD3 timber camo is nice, but I think they have other patterns that would work well with this blind. The photo shows it being tan looking, but it is actually has an olive drab hue, not a big deal, but doesn't totally work with timber. The storage bag is backpack style with full length zipper and spacious for repacking. The bag itself is light weight and kind of noisy and worse off NOT made from same 300 denier as blind and will get punctured from hub cleats. This can be avoided if you pack the legs/feet so they are at top of bag rather than bottom when packing out. Do use supplied steaks as the blind will blow over in the wind. The folks at TruTimber were helpful when I called to ask questions. I bought 2 from Cabela's, worth the money.

Great blind for the money!

Date:October 29, 2010
This blind is well worth the money. Has both open area on one side and windows on the other so it works great with whatever you prefer. Material is durable and the black backround allows you to stay hidden even when deer are really close. The only downfall of the blind I've encountered so far is the carrying bag is a bit to noisy for what I prefer.

Just Average!

Date:November 20, 2010
Ordered my True-Timber and was surprized by the quick delivery! The True-Timber blind set up very easily, but didn't collapse quit so easily. It sounded like it was breaking apart! The window screens didn't fit properly (seemed too small) and had a hard time trying to match the velco. The camo is great and the material seems durable. The biggest issue is the cheap carrying case that the blind came with. After just one use, the bag split open up a seam! Nice blind, terrible carrying case. Looks like I have to spend even more money to aquire a better carrying case.

Weather restricted

Date:December 8, 2010
Snow collapsed the roof, and only around 3 inches. The windows don't fit properly. Can't completely close up the inside window covers, they are just a hook and catch type, no zippers. Really, no where near the older Ameristep I used to have. I would not have bought this, had I been able to see it in person, or even had more information on it prior. No, not recommended at all.

enraged

Date:October 15, 2012
i bought this blind as i needed something bigger than my old pop up as my 11 yr old daughter has taken up hunting. the first time i tried to set it up 2 of the legs kept popping out of the sleeves. It doesn't live up to any standard. i tried to set this heap up before bow season this year and once again the legs kept popping out of holding sleeves. One leg even broke and caused me to sip it bag in its case and chunk into the trash can awaiting the trash man to take it where it belongs. Out money and not happy.
