Xenek Blind & Chairs
« on: January 05, 2018, 09:57:53 PM »
I bought one last week and it arrived yesterday. The issue I'm having right now is that Mother Nature crapped on us here in NH and I can't get out to set up. I told the wife if she comes into the living room later and can't find me, peek into the blind. I'll probably be hanging out in there dreaming of spring ;D 

I also have a few chairs for the boys and myself. For them I got the Alps OutdoorZ Rhino MC chairs and the Redneck Portable Hunting Chair coming. I'm not a huge ground blind hunter but when I'm with the kiddos, it the best route for them. Does anyone have any experience with the chairs I mentioned?

Please keep us inform on how you like the chair!!....yea like Yari - never heard of the blind before but have the chair...please wait till spring before you test out the chair...with your boys go ahead and set up the bling in the den...LOL...have it facing the TV...LOL...

When I left GA last Sunday (the 31st) it was 34 F outside, when I got home here in East Tennessee, it was 25 F!!! I went ahead and popped up my two blinds in the external garage and unloaded the truck, empty the cooler and the ice I dumped on the ground is still there a week later...it has not gotten above freezing since last Saturday...I cannot imagine how cold it is where you northern guys are at!!!

Good day to watch football and to clean a rifle or two or three or........

Totally agree....but I got a pretty good deal on it. A lot less than what you see them going for. I've had issue with my one son to small to shot sitting and to tall to stand and shoot. Maybe this with help him with that and also with my other son with wanting to shoot a gobbler with his bow.

Well the Redneck chair arrived this evening. I got it set up and I must say, I'm very impressed with it.

Pros: easy to setup / well built & very solid / comfortable (here in my living room as I check it out) / seat swivels just enough if needed / good padding on seat & backrest / height of chair adjustable / big swiveling feet on bottom of chair legs so they don't sink in the ground

Cons: price / weight of chair / carrying strap

Over all I give the chair a 9 out of 10. The price I can live with. I don't mind paying more as long as I'm getting my money's worth and I feel I am with this chair. The carrying strap is also a disappointment but I can fix that easy. About the only con I can't do much with is the weight. At 16lb I can see it being a haul into some of my hunting spots here in NH/VT where I don't use my AVT. Now in WV/PA, my ATV carries everything ;D

The Alps OutdoorZ chairs also arrive the other day and they too are not a disappointment.

Pros: price / quick setup / solid (for a folding chair) / big comfortable padded seat (again, here in my living room as I checked it out) / no leg pinching / height of chair is easy for my fat butt to get up from / easy to move or switch angle for a shot / comfortable padded backrest / small enough & easy to move around / light enough for my kids to carrying in @--0--0118

Cons: it's a folding chair / carrying bag needs to be bigger / not adjustable of seat height

I would definitely recommend both of these chair to my friends --9-8-7

Great review on the chairs MKMGOBL, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. A 16# chair is quite a bit to be carrying around in the woods for sure. I would have to leave the rifle at home  --099-780
