Wildlife Watch­ing Sup­plies C33 Light­weight Bag Hide

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

£67/$84 wildlife­watch­ing­sup­plies.co.uk Granted, this isn’t the most so­phis­ti­cated form of cover, but then wildlife isn’t too snob­bish about style. What you get is a large yet light­weight and breath­able fab­ric bag for you and your cam­era to nes­tle in or un­der. Whether you’re on a chair with a tri­pod, crouch­ing, or even ly­ing flat for ul­ti­mate stealth, this hide will have you cov­ered.

There are two open­ings, one for your head, one for a lens, and when you’re ready to move on, it packs down small and weighs just 460g. It isn’t water­proof, but a thicker, rain-re­sis­tant ver­sion is avail­able (£83/$104) if you’re happy to carry a bit more bulk.

It may not be ideal in the wet or for longer stints where the com­fort of a self-sup­port­ing hide is hard to beat. How­ever, this hide does a de­cent job of mask­ing your out­line and is just the ticket for oc­ca­sional or spon­ta­neous wildlife shoots.


Com­pact cam­ou­flage op­tion that keeps both you and your gear un­der wraps Cons

Not ideal for longer shoots; this ul­tra­light ver­sion isn’t water­proof We say

Great value and a must for the oc­ca­sional wildlifepho­tog­ra­pher’s kit bag Over­all score
