This inflatable floating hide sets a new standard. It’s a lightweight but very robust build with a very low mounting board to attach a gimbal (Wimberley) head. While the hull can be inflated with high pressure, the float is very stable and easy to handle. It is easy to attach all kinds of accessories to suit your needs for photographing waterfowl in shallow water or in deeper ponds. More info at our FAQ-page

    Of good manufacturing quality, this floating hide is really well designed and very easy to assemble/disassemble. I have just replaced the fixing ropes of the shelf with 6 wing nuts, which seems to me even simpler to use and more secure. After use, I remain very satisfied with this investment: lightness, solidity, stability.
    De belle qualité de réalisation, cet affût flottant est réellement bien conçu et très facile à monter/démonter. J’ai juste remplacé les cordes de fixation de la tablette par 6 vis-rondelles-écrous papillons, ce qui me semble plus simple encore à utiliser et plus sécurisant. Après utilisation, je reste très satisfait de cet investissement : légèreté, solidité, stabilité.

    J’ai la version classique depuis un mois. Je l’ai déjà beaucoup utilisé dans différents milieux aquatiques. L’affut est d’excellente qualité, c’est du solide et je n’ai aucune crainte concernant le pneumatique. La tente est parfaite et on voit qu’elle a été réfléchie par un photographe expérimenté, tout est bien pensé ! Gaines pour les arceaux très solides, toile épaisse, nombreuses fenêtres de visions avec fermetures aimantées (enfin, plus de velcro qui fait un bruit infernal). L’affût est compact et le top est la visée à raz de l’eau !!
    Par contre, pour pinailler ou aider à de futures améliorations…. La fixation de la plaque prend du temps à être installée avec un système de cordage (une fois fixée, çà ne bouge plus). Le sac de transport est super bien fait et très solide par contre, il manque d’une grande sangle pour les portages nécessitant une marche d’approche. Le gonfleur est fragile surtout sur le point de fixation avec le tuyau (pas sûr qu’il résistera longtemps à une utilisation intensive). Cet AF est vraiment superbe, je retiens : léger, solide, stable, perspective au raz de l’eau, efficace dans très peu d’eau (marais, vasières), tente hyper bien conçue. Comparativement à mes anciens AF fabriqués “maisons” et intransportables c’est vraiment un plus pour la pratique de cette approche photographique. J’en profite pleinement et je ne regrette pas cet investissement.

    I’ve had the classic version for a month. I have already used it a lot in different aquatic environments. The mount is of excellent quality, it’s solid and I have no worries about the tire. The tent is perfect and you can see that it has been thought out by an experienced photographer, everything is well thought out! Very strong pole sleeves, thick canvas, many vision windows with magnetic closures (finally, no more velcro that makes a hell of a noise). The mount is compact and the top is the flush sight !
    On the other hand, to nitpick or help with future improvements…. The plate takes time to be installed with a rope system (once fixed, it doesn’t move anymore). The carrying bag is super well made and very solid on the other hand, it lacks a large strap for portages requiring an approach step. The inflator is fragile, especially at the point of attachment with the hose (not sure that it will resist a long time to intensive use). This AF is really superb, I remember: light, solid, stable, low water perspective, effective in very little water (marshes, mudflats), very well designed tent. Compared to my old home-made and untransportable AFs, it is really a plus for the practice of this photographic approach. I take full advantage of it and I do not regret this investment

    I have classic version since last year. It has opened new world for me. It’s amazing piece of kit very well build and easy to use. If you’re into bird photography try this. You’ll see how big difference does it make.

    I have been using the floating hide for a year now, both version 1 and version 2. Both are excellent. The hide lets me easily reach excellent photo range while the birds are unaware of me being there. It is easy to do and a very relaxing way to shoot photos that please me.

    A fantastic way of shooting from a perspective that has never been available to me before. Very quick and easy assembly and disassembly. You can easily take it wherever you want to take pictures directly above the water surface. Fast and professional service, fully professional.
