NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

£94/$118 wildlife­watch­ing­sup­plies.co.uk This has to be the most min­i­mal hide pos­si­ble: a hoodie and overtrousers combo. With­out the has­sle of a con­ven­tional hide, you’re free to stay on the move and track wildlife, as long as you’re trav­el­ling light.

Both parts of the suit are baggy enough to make a rap­per’s at­tire look skin-tight, so they help break up your out­line and will fit over what­ever cloth­ing you’re al­ready wear­ing. The quick-dry­ing ma­te­rial is rus­tle-free and though not water­proof, it is highly breath­able, light and sur­pris­ingly com­fort­able.

Down­sides? You’ll need ad­di­tional cam­ou­flage to keep your cam­era and a sup­port un­der wraps, and you’re open to the el­e­ments. It’s also a good job peo­ple are un­likely to spot you, as this spe­cial-forces look would raise a few eye­brows if you were to en­counter pass­ing ram­blers!

Pros Very portable; re­al­is­tic camo pat­tern and baggy look ups stealth fac­tor Cons Fairly pricey for what you get; cam­era and sup­port re­quire ex­tra cover We say

Great for stay­ing mo­bile, but the bag hide of­fers bet­ter value and ver­sa­til­ity Over­all score
