I get asked this all the time and I answer it the same. It depends on use and your size. If you wanna let a blind sit cause you have birds hitting a field each day a nice big blind preset w chairs and everything could work.
If you roost birds the night before and have no for sure exact spot in mind cause you bounce around w the birds you need to consider a very easy to put up blind.
I use an Ameritech doghouse. I can put it up very slowly within sight of roosted birds (sometimes under 40 yards) it’s not super high and I’m limited but better than limited to one spot if you ask me. Carrying a big cumbersome one up a mountain and pulling out hub blinds is too noisy and too hard each day

You might want to take a look at Rhino Blinds Cut-N-Run. It’s a two sided hub blind with multiple windows that’s a snap to put up or take down and move.
Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

I use a Barronett Big Mike ground blind.  Plenty of clearance for my 64" Bob Lee Natural recurve.  I shoot sitting on a chair.  Still trying to decide on which swivel type chair I'm going to upgrade to this spring.

I almost always pre set the blind the evening before hunting (private land).  Then depending on how hunting is, I fine tune it.

I also have used a 5 gallon bucket strapped to a pull behind golf bag cart to transport the blind and other gear, if I can't drive close to the area where I want to set the blind.  Put part of the blind in the 5 gallon bucket, strap chairs and decoys to the cart/blind.  It works pretty slick.

I've only had experience with the Grounder 350 by Barronet. I like it a lot. Reasonably priced and very roomy. Center height is like 80" or very close to that. I'm 6'4" and can stand up and stretch when I want.

I get mine at Orscheln. They seem to have the best price.

The Big Mike arrived today! No problems shooting from my knees from the windows. Haven’t got to standing yet

When a man shoots with a bow it is own vigor of body that drives the arrow,  his own mind controls the missile's flight......His trained muscles and toughened thews have done the work

I shoot a 62 in Martin Hatfield. Kneeling and sitting are good to go.

I’m 5 10 and standing with this bow is a no go

After messing around with this blind a bit I really like the adjustability of the windows. The screens and windows are opened an closed with an eye and peg type connection as well as a zipper for the solid flaps.

I will say it takes several minutes of messing around with the screens and windows to get them how you want them and then fasten everything back up to take it down and pack it up.

I use the Barronett blind and I was think about the Primos stake out blind until I seen the cut N run blind posted by 1/4 away I like the looks of this blind and the height of the blind.

Ok Gator here ya go....

The 350 is here and it's huge.  Plenty of room to shoot my 60" recurve or even my longbow.  Enough room to stand or sit.  I'm 6'4".  It appears built tough.  Windows are attatched w elastic loops rather than zippers which I think is better and quieter.  It has a pouch for the stakes sewn into the wall by the door. 
I like it a lot.....
