For all of you wildlife photographers looking for a portable blind, LensCoat has something you might be interested in. Their new LensHide covers you and your gear in a camouflage pattern (available in "tree" and "snow" patterns), perfect for stealthily capturing wildlife images out in the field.

The LensHide is made from lightweight, breathable material and has a "large camo mesh-screen" that allows you to see out from the LensHide and doesn't limit your peripheral vision. It is easy to set up and has a Velcro closure on the back of the hood to keep it in place. To ensure that your lens stays covered, there is an elastic cinch strap that you can tighten around the end of your lens. There's even a sealed top slot that can camouflage an attached external flash unit.

Additional features for the 2.5 lb. LensHide include an integrated storage pouch with belt loops and two d-rings/internal accessory pocket and Velcro front closure. You can see the LensHide in action in the videos below.

As you can see in the above images, the LensHide provides plenty of room for your gear, including an external flash, while still keeping you completely covered.
The LensHide folds up into an included pouch. The pouch can also attach to your belt, as you can see by the belt loops in the image on the right.

The LensCoat LensHide is available now from LensCoat and costs $119.99 in both the "Realtree Max4" and "Realtree AP Snow" camouflage patterns.
