Alps zero-gravity vs legend layout blind for waterfowl in cornfield

Just getting into waterfowl hunting and will be mostly in corn/bean fields in central Illinois. I have a bad back so I have basically decided on one of the Alps layout blinds with zero gravity chair. Would those with experience recommend the Legend with full floor or the regular zero-gravity with no floor? I can see pros/cons to each and would be interested in recommendations. Thanks.

The zero gravity is the single most comfortable layout I’ve ever hunted from. The cons are it sits kinda high. If you have several guys or some terrain or brush to hide it in you’ll be golden.

I say several guys because you can raise the skirts to meet each other if need be.

They are kinda bulky, but hunting cut corn you should have some means of hauling decoys and blinds out to your spot then walking back without having to carry anything when you hide your ride.
