IMO they are not worth using. Especially if your tall. I'm 6' 3" and had a hard time laying down comfortably, and trying to blow a call under the shell was very tough! another drawback is that it is very tough to see through the slits in the shell. That is why I have only used mine twice and am looking at layout blinds.
I've only used them once. We layed out in the snow during the late season along the Missouri. With no wind, the birds kept surprising us from behind. That meant we had to literally roll out of the chairs and pop up, which was a pain in the @$$. And seeing through the "slots" in the decoy was difficult, and the sound of the calls were muffled. We ended up laying out of the chairs and I haven't used one since.
If you guys want to get some Layout blinds, I know a place that is selling rock bottom prices on Final Approach Blinds New in Box. If you buy 3 or more they'll sell them for $180/piece + shipping. PM me and I'll give you the details.
