What's the difference?

Between Clear PVC & Mesh

Often it is confusing to know which type of fabric to choose for your Ziptrak® Outdoor Blind. We can help guide you though this process however you may like to consider these benefits beforehand.

  • Do you require some airflow?

  • Would you like to make the blind electric?

  • Is shade a high priority?

  • Do you require some privacy?
