Review of wildlife hide – Stealth Gear Two Man Photography Chair Hide

A few years ago, at Birdfair, I bought a wildlife hide to mainly use in my local woods.

Hide in wood

The Stealth Gear Two Man Photography Chair Hide (around £130) has got a large front viewing window but also 2 smaller windows on each side and one in the back. This allows for a 360 degree view but also lets a good amount of light in. Each window has a mesh cover.

The two chairs are joined together allowing for plenty of room at the front for a tripod or two. Each chair has a cup holder, arm rest and a pocket for phone or notepad.

The camouflage pattern has been designed for the UK countryside and blends in well, particularly in the summer and autumn.

At around 9kg the hide can be heavy to carry long distances, but it does pack up in to a carrying bag with shoulder straps.

It was quite quiet out in the woods yesterday with only a few squirrels and the normal blue tits, wood pigeons and a couple of nuthatches to watch.

In the last 30 minutes a fox appeared, firstly stalking through the brambles but then trotting out in to the meadow.

If you are on Twitter and love nature books, it is worth joining in with #NatureBookClub on a Sunday evening around 7pm.

Each Sunday there a few questions to answer, such as, introduce yourself, favourite book, take a book shelfie, what are you currently reading, favourite nature illustrator and more.

It’s a great place to share and learn about nature and wildlife books.

Get Your Boots On available at Bookshops, Dived Up Publications and Amazon UK
