Ground Hide with rapid deployment, for taking pictures of birds at ground level.
This Hide is made of a waterproof 150D « oxford » polyester, combining lightness with strength, by using an isotherm PU coating on the fabric the temperature inside the Hide is reduced by several degrees when exposed to the sun. It also help to keep warm inside in winter. This coating is also light-proof offering total darkness inside the Hide and so avoiding shadow of the photographer to be seen outside when the Hide is positioned in front of the sun.

Tragopan has designed a new realistic Camo pattern more suitable for use throughout all seasons by wildlife photographers. Going forward, this new pattern will be the default pattern for all Tragopan Hides and accessories.
To avoid water leaking along the shooting windows, we’ve added a screen which entirely covers the shooting window from the outside. This screen is opened with two ropes that can be operated silently from inside the Hide.
The small survey windows which were another source of leaking have been replaced by small sleeves that can be opened and closed with a small rope and will fit a small telephoto lens (e.g. 400 F/5,6) or binoculars. These windows give the photographer improved visibility around the hide.
The Hokki photo hide use the same rapid opening system as on the Tragopan V6 and Monal V2. This system allows one to open the main compartment in a very short time. The rear part is then stretched using pegs. The rest of the set-up process consists of setting the roof canopy with 4 quick buckles attached by webbing, which allow one to adjust the tension of the canopy, and finally optionally inserting an aluminium pole to increase the total volume of the rear part of the Hide.
The roof canopy makes this Hide waterproof to rain showers and avoids any condensation inside the main compartment. It also reduces the temperature inside when it is exposed to the sun. Two ventilations, one on the rear and one at the top of the main compartment, are present in order to create air-flow inside the Hide.
A waterproof ground floor is included with this Hide.
The Hokki has 3 main rectangular shooting windows, one in the front and one on each side, all the sleeves and shutters used with the Hokki V3 are compatible with the Tragopan V6, Grouse V+ and Monal V2.
The Hokki V3 is delivered with the following sleeves and shutters:
The Hide has a single door that can be opened and closed from inside as well as from outside with a thick and silent zipper.
The Hide is delivered with 10 pegs and an explanation notice about how to erect and dismantle the Hide.
