Features

This Hide has been realysed in a waterproof 170D polyester, alloying lightness with strengh. The Hide is delivered in a carrying bag comprising two straps allowing to carry it as a backpack, or a shoulder bag, or even fixing it at the front of a camera backpack.

This Hide is built on a structure of 4 metal frames, that unfolded themself once the Hide is taken out from the carrying bag. Be carefull not to be caught out by the opening.

The opening can be controled by handling firmly the frame once taking out the Hide from its carrying bag. The Hide will unfolded itself as soon as you loosen your hand from it.

The Hide is delivered with 2 poles to bulge the roof out. The pole's tip has to be place inside the Hide, on the webbing that is stiched at medium hight in each corners. By using this crossing poles, the Hide roof will be 10 cm higher. The use of this poles is optional but we advise people to use it in case of raining to avoid water accumulation on the roof, as well as if the Hide has to be left in the field for long time, especially when the weather is changeable. Tall people will appreciate use them as well.

The Hide is delivered with 8 stakes, 4 stakes to fixed it on the ground using the webbing steach at the base of the 4 corners, and 4 stakes in case of strong wing to reinforce the Hide stability with the 4 cords delivered together.  

On each side of the Hide a total of 12 thin cords is steached outside of the Hide to improve the camouflage by adding natural elements : leaves, branches, grasses...

The Hide has a single door that can be opened and closed from inside as well as from outside with a thick zipper.

A pocket is located in one of the four side of the Hide inside, it can be used to put the additional windows unused or some light accesories.  

All of the four sides of the Hide have the same configuration of windows and opening, as described below :

  • A special opening to let one leg of the tripod being outside of the Hide, but also allowing taking pictures on the ground level as well as using a 45° eyepiece scope for digiscoping. This opening is made of a zipper with 4 zipper puller. The 2 zippers puller in the middle create the opening for the tripod leg, the one below create a inverted T shape window  at about 15 cm over the ground, and the one above a T shape window to be use with a 45° eyepiece scope being comfy sitting.
  • One main window with shutters or tubes that can be added or removed to suit your needs. This window is a square shape of a size of 28 x 28 cm with 4 differents types of elements that can be set up :
  1. A plain shutter, made with the same material as the Hide. This shutter is fixed with 2 zippers on each side, a third zipper lengthwise on the middle allows to open only a half of the shutter or to create a slit to pass a lens throught. A band of material is steached over the window to let put the shutter on it and fixed it opened Only half of the shutter may also be put on it. (Delivered quantity : 4 pieces)
  2. A shutter made of a semi-transparent net, this shutter is fixed on the Hide using « Velcro ». It allow people to monitor what's happening outside of the Hide without leting animals detecting movment inside the Hide ( to make it as much accurate as possible, inside the Hide should be as dark as possible, so better to close all unused windows). This shutter can be paired up with one plain shutter, so that you can pull it down silently in some situation. (Delivered quantity : 4 pieces)
  3. A tube made with semi-transparent material as the shutter above. It is also fixed on the Hide by « velcro », and has at its extremity a thin cord to fit any lens diameter found in the market. This tube is particuraly adapted to take pictures of mamals. It can also be paired up with the plain shutter. ( Delivered quantity : 1 piece)
  4. A plain tube mades of the same material as the Hide, it is fixed on it using the same way as the net tube and also have the same system to fit any lens diameter. This tube has an incorporated window that allows to pass throught a « Cobra » speedlight or watch out over the camera body. This small window can be opened or closed very silently with a zipper. This tube is more adapted to take pictures of very shy passerines in close range or birds very sensitive to movements. (Delivered quantity : 1 piece)

To conclude, because of the « velcro » we advise people to set up the window configuration when they install the Hide to avoid further noise during the session, after having been fixed, the different shutters and windows can be opened or closed very silently.

  • Every main window have two small window ( 5 x10 cm) on each side to watch outside of the Hide. Each of this small window has one shutter made of semi-transparent net and one of plain material. This shutters can be fixed opened or closed very silently by putting them on a band of material stitch below and above of the small window.

The Hide is delvered with an explanation notice to fold back the Hide. This frightening step will soon become a formality after a few tries. For further information about this Hide or its use do not hesitate to contact us.
