Wildlife Watching Supplies H1 Chair Hide
It’s all very well having a hide, but since wildlife will rarely be rushed, it’s also nice to have something on which to park your posterior. This hide is based around a folding chair with an integrated sun shade that doubles as a roof sturdy enough to support a camouflage cover.
Entry is enabled by peeling one side of the cover forward, and inside there’s plenty of space in front of you for a tripod. A well-positioned slit in the front lets even the largest diameter lens poke through, and above this is a big netted window.
Stealth is high, thanks to the cover hanging more naturally than on a taught tent, and the narrow footprint enables you to nestle into the undergrowth.
The chair hide is a fantastic balance of comfort and camouflage; just don’t park too far away. At close to 6kg, and with a packed length of 90cm, this the least portable option here.
Pros Comfy yet compact; very easy to set up; good camouflage; plenty of room Cons
Very heavy and bulky to cart around, but at least you’ve already got a chair We say
Almost the perfect hide, providing you don’t need to go too far on foot Overall score
