Question: Can I leave the ComfortQuest Blind and frame up all year?
Answer: Although you CAN leave the blind and frame up all year we recommend that you at least remove the fabric blind from the frame at the end of the hunting season. It only takes about 1 minute to remove the blind and it will last years longer if you remove it, make sure it is dry and store it in the carry bag.

Question: Will the ComfortQuest Blinds fade or turn orange over time?
Answer: ComfortQuest Blinds are treated with UV inhibitors (level 4 on a scale of 5) and are extremely resistant to fading and will not turn orange. In 4 years of field testing our blinds we have experienced no fading.

Question: Are the ComfortQuest Blinds waterproof?
Answer: The fabric used to manufacture the ComfortQuest Blinds is 600 denier polyurethane coated polyester making it one of the most water resistant blinds available today.

Question: Where is the door in the ComfortQuest Blind?
Answer: The ComfortQuest SW4x4 Blind has a 48” zippered door on the front side and also has a 72” installation zipper on the adjacent side. The zippered door is used to enter and exit the blind and the installation zipper makes it easy to install the blind on the aluminum frame. The ComfortQuest SW4x6 Blind has a 48” zippered door on one of the 4’ ends and a 72” installation zipper on the opposite 4’ end.

Question: How is the ComfortQuest Blind installed on the frame?
Answer: The ComfortQuest SW4x4 and SW4x6 Blind both include a 72” installation zipper. To install the blind on the frame, simply unzip the installation zipper completely, slide the fabric blind over the frame and zip the installation zipper back to its closed position.

Question: Will the ComfortQuest Blind flap in the wind?
Answer: The ComfortQuest SW4x4 and Sw4x6 Blinds are designed to fit very snug on the aluminum frame. Both models also include integrated internal bungee cords that attach to the aluminum frame on the inside of the blind. Both blinds also include D-rings on the bottom hem that are connected to adjustable bungee cords (included) on the underside of the customer provided stand platform. The combination of snug fit, internal and external bungee cords means very little movement in the wind.

Question: How much wind can the ComfortQuest Blind handle?
Answer: In our most extreme tests in northern Minnesota, our blinds endured a 3-day wind storm with sustained winds of 45 MPH and gusts of up to 60 MPH. To maximize resistance to high winds it is important that the blind is installed properly and all instructions are followed carefully.

Question: Can I use the ComfortQuest Blind as a ground blind?
Answer: Yes. We offer an optional Ground Blind Frame for the both the SW4x4 and the SW4x6 blinds. With this optional accessory, you can use the ComfortQuest Blinds as a ground blind. The optional frames include (12) 10” steel stakes that are used to secure the ground blind frame to the ground. You can also mount the ComfortQuest 4x4 and 4x6 Blinds on a customer provided wood platform on the ground.

Question: What tools do I need to setup the ComfortQuest Hunting Blind?
Answer: All you will need is a Phillips screwdriver to install the corner bases onto your stand.

The installation of the fabric blind is made easy with a full length installation zipper and bungees at the corners and hem to tighten the blind and minimize movement due to wind.

Question: How do I install the ComfortQuest Hunting Blind on my own 4' x 4' platform?

Question: How do I install the ComfortQuest Hunting Blind Optional Vinyl Windows and Mesh Screens?
Answer: The ComfortQuest Fabric Blind has powerful rare earth magnets that are permanently attached to the blind. These magnets are mated with other PowerMag magnets which are used to install the screens and vinyl windows. Each of the large blind windows have 3 magnets across the top and an additional magnet in each of the lower corners. The rear side, with two smaller windows, has four magnets across the top and one in each of the two lower corners. Typically, on calm or mild wind days, one magnet in each upper corner will hold the screens and windows in place. In stronger winds more magnets can be added for greater holding power. Magnets were used to guarantee silent installation and removal of the screens and windows.

Question: Can you mount the ComfortQuest Hunting Blinds on larger platforms than 4'x 4' or 4' x 6'?
Answer: The ComfortQuest Hunting Blinds are designed to mount on a 4' x4' or 4' x 6' platform respectively, but you can mount them on larger platforms if you either a) build an appropriately sized 2' x 4' frame on top of the larger platform or b) buy the optional Ground Blind Frame Kit and mount the frame on top of your oversized platform. This will provide a stable mount for your 4' x4' or 4' x 6' ComfortQuest Hunting Blind.

Question: How should I store my clear vinyl windows in the off season?
Answer: To preserve the smoothness and clarity of the windows, you can roll them with a layer of paper between each window (included in the original shipping carton, and store them in the original shipping carton).

Question: How can I remove wrinkles from my clear vinyl windows?How can I remove wrinkles from my clear vinyl windows?
Answer: The best method is to put up your ComfortQuest blind a month or two before the season and, with the zippered windows all closed, install the clear vinyl windows in the blind. The heat normally associated with early season weather will heat up the blind and remove most or all of the wrinkles. If it is too cold for this method, then an alternate method is to hold the windows in front of a heat source (such as a fireplace blower, indoor heater, hair dryer, etc.) for about 5-10 minutes per window. This should remove most or all of the wrinkles.

Question: How much wind can the magnetic mount vinyl windows handle?
Answer: The amount of wind that the windows can handle is dependant on the velocity of the winds and on how the windows are configured. In gentle winds, 3 magnets at the top of the window are all that are needed. In more aggressive winds, you can “stack” additional magnets on the window on the upwind side of the blind to significantly increase the holding power of the magnets. You can also add magnets on the bottom edge of the window. In extreme winds, you can partially close the outer zippered window and “stack” additional magnets on the window on the upwind side of the blind to increase the holding power even more.

Question: Where can I get plans for building a platform stand?
Answer: Complete detailed plans for building a 4x4 and 4x6 platform stand are available in the “customer service” section of our web site. The PDF plans can be downloaded for free and include materials lists, detailed drawings and photos.

Question: Can I use a ComfortQuest Blind on a stand platform that is larger than 4x4 or 4x6?
Answer: Yes. You can install a ComfortQuest Blind on wood or steel mesh platforms that are larger than 4x4 or 4x6. A simple wood adaptor is all that you need. Free plans for building both types of adaptors are available on our web site under “customer service”.

Question: Can I leave the Sport Chair outdoors all season?
