Default Layout blind for tall people????

Well I just got into goose hunting this year and have been using my buddy's laydown blind which is a Avery pro hunter. I fit in it however I am 6'6" and I would like to buy my own blind. Any recommendations on what blind to buy for a taller guy. I just want to be comfortable.

I have looked at the Final Approach XL and a lot of complaints were that it sticks out too much.

I hunt a mixture of corn fields and hay fields.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

I don't know about the avery blinds but kill zone layout blinds are spec'ed as follows

Weight: 17 lbs.
Folded: 47” x 17” x 8”
Open: 86” x 36” x 20”

Im no Math pro but I'm 6 feet tall which is 72'' so 6'6'' is 78''... seems like you will have a bit of leg room with this blind. the only problem I would see is concielment with this KZ blind... however, its nothing that a few strips of fastgrass and some zip ties can't handle... Also this blind is sale priced at $99.00

this is so true here is the XL i am 6'3" 300lbs powerlifter i am comfortable in this one along with the rogers goosebuster. The final approach has a higher back bur the goosebuster i feel is longer . . I have used both it is pretty even tie order them in field brown save some cash

I'm 6'9" and I use a Cabela's Interceptor Elite blind. Works very well for me, my feet are right at the end, but I'm fine with that. First ever field hunt I did was ot of an Avery Power Hunter. That was a long freeken day! I would have better off to stand up and put the blind on like a pair of pants than lay down in it and slither my way to the bottom.

Default At 6'6" you know better than that

Like anything for big people is easily found. Most merchants don't sell shoes for big foot, now do they.

I'm at the good side of the cusp on size, so I understand your problem. Just search the internet and indicate your size. hunting shoes size 16. pants 38 inch inseam. layout blind - as long as a nike missile.

If anyone is selling, they'll brag about the big size available.
