Titan Hide Camo Pro ‘Long Term’ Review
Now that the new Titan Hide Camo Pro has been out for a while I thought I should do a little review on it and give you my honest opinion. I have had one for a little while now and it has been on the bank plenty of times with me!
This isn’t really a long term review (as they haven’t been out for long enough), but its a good first impression from a good few uses! I also owned the previous Titan Hide so I can see how the upgrades have improved or not improved the new Pro version!
So, what are the upgrades you get when buying the titan Hide Pro?
- Revised compact super strong center boss.
- Extended front bar design with angled rain peak tension bar and storm gutter.
- Air flow design with four independently zipped mozzi mesh panels.
- Camo internal removable vapour shield to reduce condensation drip.
- Twin internal mesh valuables pockets.
- Camo print mozzi mesh.
- Vented camo carry bag with full zip.
- 10,000mm Aqua Sense hydra material.
What about the size difference?
The hide camo pro is..
- 10cm lower (mostly thanks to the new smaller boss).
- 10cm narrower.
- 15cm deeper.
- 1.9kg heavier (mostly due to new material).
- The same 44 inch packdown.
Lets look at some of those improvements..
The new revised boss is smaller, and stronger than the previous Hide boss making the newer version lower than its older brother.
The new extended front bar design with rain peak, tension bar and rain gutter is a much needed improvement over the old hide keeping driving rain out of the shelter.
You would need to blind to not notice this massive change… Or would you as they are camo…. The new Hide includes 4 independently zipped mozzi panels maximizing air flow on the hot days and letting plenty of light in during the day. The mesh is camo so it also looks amazing.
The new hide Camo Pro also includes a camo internal vapour shield to help reduce condensation drip.
You also get twin mesh pockets on the inside to keep your phones, receivers etc safe.
The rod retaining straps are now magnetic! the days of noisy and dirt gathering Velcro are gone and have been replaced with a satisfying magnetic click.
The material has had a huge upgrade replacing the 420D nylon with a 5,000mm hydrostatic head to 10,000mm Aqua Sense hydra material which is twin lined to keep out the light and making it much better…. And it is also camo!
Personally I use the hide with the mozzi infill, just like I did with the old hide. I like to keep the weight down and it keeps out some rain if it starts!
How much is it?
The Titan Hide Pro is more expensive than the Hide for all of the reason above, mostly due to the new material, windows etc. It comes in at £349.99 with the doors and accessories starting at £59.99.
So whats the Verdict?
- Size and internal space.
- set up speed.
- Those windows!
- The new material is fantastic!
- NEW easy pack-away bag.
- 2 year warranty (register for 2nd year).
- The door height is a little low for anyone over 5’11”, (door height is 105cm).
- If you don’t like camo… Tough luck!
- Material can be quite tight on set up to start with (take care).
Personally I love the Titan Hides. I think they tick every box for a compact lightweight shelter. The pro It has loads of room inside, looks good and is rock solid giving you everything you will ever need out of a shelter!
