We made the original Wetland Hide for one goal: to have a portable tent that can be used from autumn until spring when the mating season (‘lekking season’) of the grouse starts. Because the ‘leks’ are in the middle of the frozen wetlands, putting up a tent is not the problem. But when the temperature rises, the frozen bog becomes wet again. So, we took on the challenge to design a hide that keeps you dry and comfortable in a moor throughout the seasons: the Mursu Wetland Hide.
The blind was developed for use on high turf and other boggy areas, in wet forests, in snow-covered areas and in areas with high winds - think Dovrefjell in Norway or the Siberian taiga and tundra. We designed and sampled a tent that withstands all seasons, based on feedback from photographers like Mia Surakka and Tuomas Heinonen, who had tested the Wetland Hide throughout the year.
