Each slot has a coated mesh bottom to allow for drainage, so when you put them away for the fall they won’t mold. MSRP:$59.99 | cupped.com

Stay concealed while you watch birds through small windows in the front and back of the blind. Once assembled, the blind can be set up or taken down for travel in seconds, plus it carries a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship. MSRP: Varies | popupblind.com
