Heavier than advertised,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: US Waterproof Ripstop Hooded Nylon Festival Poncho Black (Misc.)
This product is perfectly adequate given the low price - how much can you actually say about a waterproof sheet with a hole in the middle? Having said that, it is quite a lot heavier than advertised. I weighed mine (yes, I know, very sad....) and it comes in at 630g, not 375g as advertised, which is a bit irritating given that I plan to use it on rain forest fieldwork and every gram counts. I'd appreciate a more honest product description. Having said that, very lightweight ponchos flap around and are clingy, so maybe it's no bad thing that it is a bit heavier. Otherwise, it's pretty robust - poppers down the sides, capacious hood, various laces and draw strings and a nice little stuff sack. I am sure it will do the job.
