has been designed to f two needs first allow to sleep inside for long period with the comfort needed for such long Hide sessionecondly to allow two people to shoot side by side .
Tragopan has designed a new realistic Camo pattern more suitable for the multi-season use by the wildlife photographer, in particular by including green vegetation. 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 outside. This screen is opened with two ropes that can be operated silently from inside the Hide.
The various sleeves and mesh screen are now fixed using small clips which replace the “Velcro” tape and zipper, which were too noisy.
The small survey windows which were another source of leaking have been replaced by small sleeves that can be opened and closed with a small rope and will fit a small telephoto lens (e.g. 400 F/5,6) or binoculars.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.
Helped by its expanded canopy system, the Monal is the only Hide the market which allows to take picture rain or snow with lens sheltered.
The Monal Hide comprises an inner room and a roof–canopy which extends widely on each side of the tent, avoiding any water infiltration through the shooting windows.
The inner room is quickly installed, helped by the rapid deployment system, which is similar to the Tragopan V5. The canopy insert 4 anodized of glass fibre poles . The canopy is fixed to the main room by four clips and webbing which allow its tension. The installation of the canopy is optional and it can be replace by a camo net (like this) thrown the inner room top, thus reducing the total weight to carry and speeding up the installation process.
The inner room two on its top, which guarantees perfect ventilation inside.
The removable ground floor is easilywith a zipper offering insects and other unwanted animals inside the tent. The ground floor is best removed for short Hide session, reducing the total weight to be carried out.
