Alps Outdoorz Zero-Gravity Layout Blind

All-day waterfowl hunting with customizable concealment is easy, thanks to Alps Outdoorz and its Zero-Gravity Layout Blind.

Pre-assembled from the factory and featuring shoulder straps for trekking from truck to field, the blind deploys easily and provides hunters with a patented zero-gravity chair with a padded headrest that positions the shooter comfortably off the ground, yet maintains a low-enough profile to minimize its potentially threatening appearance to wary waterfowl.

Stubble straps or webbing loops are sewn-in throughout for “brushing” the blind. The company provides heavy-duty stakes suitable for use in frozen ground.

The unit weighs 23 lbs., 8 ozs., measures 118"x89"x17" and is rated for a 300-lb. user.

Available colors are Tan and Realtree MAX-7 camouflage.

MSRP is $299. For more information, visit
