Realizing that their line of quality treestands won't work in every hunting situation, the folks at Summit decided to create a new line of innovative ground blinds. The Run-N-Gun™ series is comprised of three models -- Deluxe, Standard, and Lite. All three blinds have an inverted, high-tension framework that works like an inside-out, upside-down umbrella.
Setup is different from other commercial blinds in that you use your feet instead of your fingers to "open" the blind. Each blind goes up in 10 seconds and down in five. The Deluxe model is 6 x 6 feet with a 69-inch center height. It has large, removable shoot-through mesh windows; quiet, adjustable side window flaps; a vented roof; brush loops and tie-down straps; weatherproof, water-resistant, UV-protected pongee material on the outside; and a darkened interior.
The Standard has the same dimensions and features as the Deluxe, but with 600-denier material. The Lite measures 5 x 5 feet with a 65-inch center height and lighter weight 300-denier material. Run-N-Gun blinds are available in FLX™ and NEXT™ G1 camo patterns.
