See Through Hunting Blind Review From an Avid Hunter
Most hunters don’t consider using hunting blinds in their overall hunting strategy because they are too heavy and bulky and can significantly limit your field of view in the woods. TideWe’s See Through Hunting Blind is a true game-changer when compared to other products as it brings many new advantages to the table without the usual limitations of ground blind hunting.
Having a good hunting blind is extremely valuable in helping hunters develop a solid hunting strategy for the season. In this article, we’ll explore some of the benefits and advantages the TideWe See Through Hunting Blind offers and help you decide if this product is something you should add to your hunting gear arsenal this season.
Overview of the TideWe See Through Hunting Blind
The TideWe See Through Hunting blind is a one-of-a-kind product that can be used in a variety of both big game and small game hunting scenarios. When set up, it stands at a height of 65 inches while the floor space measures 58 x 58 inches. There is enough space to allow a seated or crouched hunter to draw a bow, and it could potentially hold 2 or 3 hunters inside with room to spare.
It features a pop-up design that can be fully set up in roughly 3 minutes or less. The TideWe See Through Hunting Blind also features 3 noise-free sliding windows that allow a hunter to position themselves to make a shot in either direction. Sitting in the blind, hunters will have a 270-degree unobstructed field of view. The best feature of this product is obviously the blind’s see-through camo design that allows you to see everything that’s happening in your surroundings while remaining totally concealed from the eyes of wildlife.
Setup and Takedown
One of the most important aspects of hunting with a ground blind is the ease with which you’re able to set up or take down the blind in the field. The TideWe See Through Hunting Blind weighs just under 14 pounds, making it easy to pack along with your other gear into the wild. For turkey hunting and other outdoor activities that require frequent position changes, this blind is perfectly suited to allow you to reposition yourself for the best opportunity at harvesting your game animal.
I was able to set up the blind in just 3 minutes, but once you become familiar with the product, it’s likely that you’ll be able to fully set this blind up in around 2 minutes. The pop-up style setup makes it extremely simple and easy to handle instead of the traditional blind setup that requires hunters to erect poles and take time situating the fabric around them.
See Through Material of the Hunting Blinds
Many hunters ask,“Is the TideWe See Through Hunting Blind actually see-through?”
The short answer is yes. Not only is this fabric see-through, but it is also breathable and can allow air to flow into the blind, keeping you cool on warm days without feeling like you’re trapped in a sauna. Most hunters are pleasantly surprised at the level at which they are able to see through the fabric when sitting inside this blind.
“Can you shoot through the mesh on the TideWe See Through Hunting Blind?”
Yes, you can take a shot through the mesh material that makes up this hunting blind just like you can with more traditional blinds made with similar see-through fabric. The main difference is that hunters will have a much better ability to see through this blind’s fabric and spot movement in areas where they would usually have a blind spot.
For bowhunters, shooting through the mesh fabric is possible, but it’s a good idea to practice this with the broadhead and arrow setup you plan to use before going into the field on your hunt. In the event that you want to make a clean, unobstructed shot, you can simply peel the fabric down on each window section, which provides hunters with plenty of space to aim their bow or gun and make an ethical shot at their target animal.
The exterior camo pattern blends into the forest around it with relative ease, making it possible to remain hidden from the early season all the way into the winter months when foliage is sparse on the trees. Loops along the outside of the fabric make it very easy to “brush in” your blind as you see fit to make it blend in with your surroundings as best as possible. If you choose, you can slide limbs and brush into these loops along the bottom to further camouflage your position.
I had plenty of space inside the blind to turn and aim a rifle or shotgun without feeling like I needed to worry about knocking the side of the blind with my gun. The TideWe See Through Hunting Blind stands at 65 inches in height when it’s set up, allowing hunters to freely move around inside without being cramped for space.
Bowhunters should find this product especially useful as you have plenty of room to draw your bow and shoot without getting your gear hung on any part of the blind. The 58 x 58 inches of floor space makes it possible for 2 or even 3 adult hunters to be comfortably seated in the blind.
This is conducive for hunters who want to bring a buddy into the field or for a camera person and guide to accompany a hunter. In my opinion, there is enough room for a tripod and camera to be set up while still allowing the hunter to wield their gun or bow as needed.
As you might imagine, the see-through fabric on this blind is not thick enough to block high winds or heavy rain. However, it does provide enough protection between you and the elements so that hunters will feel comfortable sitting inside for a few hours, even in inclement weather.
The TideWe See Through Hunting Blind is constructed out of durable, yet breathable fabric. It also comes with a strong metal hub that connects all of the sides and makes it possible to use this pop-up blind in a variety of environments. The corners of the blind are reinforced to maintain structural integrity and ensure that the sides of the blind will remain still and in place–even in strong winds.
One of the main concerns hunters have when using a blind is to what extent the fabric will produce noise. This is not something you’ll have to worry about when it comes to opening the entrance of the blind or any of its three windows because each one can be opened or closed without any sound at all. The zipper on the entrance is very quiet when used slowly, so be careful not to get into a hurry getting in or out of the blind when you’re trying to remain concealed.
Packing and Carrying
The TideWe See Through Hunting Blind weighs about 14 pounds and can be carried along with your other gear items with relative ease in most cases. It comes with four ropes that allow you to secure the blind to any nearby trees or brush in the blind for extra camouflaging. The blind also comes with eight down stakes, which should be used to prevent movement in high winds or when you want to ensure that any accidental touching of the blind from the inside won’t create a great deal of movement.
The TideWe See Through Hunting blind can be tightly packaged and placed inside its black carrying case. I’ve found that the blind can be packed along with most hunting backpacks for optimal storage and to allow your hands to handle your weapon on long hikes to and from your hunting position. This blind is the perfect item for hunters who want to quickly and significantly conceal their position on the ground when hunting deer, turkey, elk, and other game animals.
I harvested my first deer at the age of 5 and have not stopped since. I hunt every year and write about it often. I mainly hunt whitetail, duck, and turkey. As a website owner myself, I know how difficult it can be to find a writer with real-world hunting experience, so I am happy to provide first-hand anecdotes in the articles as well.
