This is an amazing poncho - perfect for backpacking! Looking forward to using it as a poncho, but can foresee many other uses as well. Super fast shipping too, thank you, Arcturus employees!!
Excellent poncho for the price.
Does the job and stores away nice and small.
It’s lightweight and great quality.
You can’t go wrong for the price, so buy it and keep it in your pack till you need it.
I cannot believe how light y'all made this poncho. Have had military ones for years, slept under them as well as wore them in the field. This one will be going in my pack so as not to miss the next available downpour to test it out for its intended use. And in Texas, you can never be sure when that will be. At least I can use it to fend off the sun until then.
Another piece of quality kit from Arcturus! Don't waste time shopping around gang this is the poncho you want. Use as Rain gear, shelter, or ground cover, this multi- use, easy to pack, poncho is darn near indistructable they don't come any better!
Overall I'm very satisfied. Lightweight. Very good price. Good coverage. I often use mine over a 35-liter rucksack and the poncho still provides better coverage than most other products. I feel like a walking tent when I wear it (which is almost every day at the moment), but so far the poncho has kept me very dry even in heavy downpours. Far better value than rain jackets that are 5-10 times more expensive and less waterproof. Only one small negative. When the front of the poncho gets wet, when walking, it will ride up the body and stick to the middle of my thighs, which in turn causes less coverage. Also, the hole for the head is very small. Maybe I'm just a big head? Would recommend and purchase again.
