|The greens and browns of the camouflage pattern break up the outline of the hide blending it into the background.|
We use proofed and breathable poly-cotton for our hides instead of nylon. The breathability of poly-cotton material performs well in the summer keeping you cooler and in the winter the breathability prevents condensation building up on the inside of the hide.
In windy conditions the poly-cotton is not as rustly as nylon would be. The poly-cotton we use is rot resistant and hard wearing. Our hides should give you long service in helping you get closer to the wildlife.
For cleaning if needed - just wipe with a wet sponge or hand wash in warm water. Our poly-cotton material has a proofing on the surface which could be lost if put in a washing machine or washed in detergents. The hides can be re-proofed. There are sprays available from outdoor/camping shops.
Due to the natural blend of the poly-cotton materials the colours may fade if the hide is left out over a period of time.
If you leave your hide out for extended periods of time our scrim covers can help to reduce the hide colours fading.

Customise Your Hide
Extra Options to Customise Your Hide
I designed our Dome Hides for my own photography many years ago. I knew the size and height of the hides I wanted. I experimented with the position of the windows and came up with an optimum design. Over the years, we have supplied many Dome Hides to photographers, film and TV companies including the BBC. We do make up specials to customer's requirements i.e. larger windows for broadcast cameras.
We have now
added some extras/options to our online shop to help you customise your
Dome hide -
Our C31 Mini Dome and C31.1 Long & Low Dome have a choice of ground sheets built in or not. If you regularly use your dome hide on uneven ground, then a Dome Hide without a built in groundsheet and pockets around the base instead may be more suitable. You have the option to choose which you prefer on these two hides.
We design the Dome hides in our workshop in Devon and make them from top quality proofed and breathable poly-cotton material - now you can customise your Dome Hide when ordering from our online shop.
THESE ITEMS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE WHEN PURCHASING THE DOME
HIDES. THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE AS INDIVIDUAL ITEMS.
