I dislike thick/bulky gortex jackets for reasons I won't get into. The next best thing for me is a lightweight tape sealed seam topshell. Drawback to the tape sealed seam is that any prolonged hiking means shoulder wear (backpack straps). This annihilates the seal on the shoulder area which is no problem...until it buckets down.
The poncho has a Velcro flap covering a vertical zipper at the neck area which can be opened for ventilation. A horizontal zipper is also placed at the back hump area to encase excess material if you are not using a backpack. The hood has a soft but efficient two inch deep visor. There's also an elastic cord in the hood to pull it tight around your face.
In high altitude windy elevations, the poncho can be hard to put on at first. After practice it's not a problem.
Mess around with the rear zipper too much and it might be the first to go. It does have a very short redundant weather flap over the zipper, but after many (many) miles I ended up sealing the zipper in the open position with silicone. Not a problem as I always use a backpack.
At high altitude the wind can grab the poncho like a kite. If on precarious trails, tie a cord around your waist unless you want to mimic Mary Poppins.
You do not get worn shoulder seams as with regular tops/jackets
I never got sweaty in my last poncho, it has such great ventilation. Then when it gets too cold, I just tie a cord around my waist to keep the heat in.
On a minute's notice I can don the poncho without removing my backpack first.
It covers the entire backpack and near full body length.Read more ›
Thursday brought the first test for the poncho and after some standing around in the rain, I noticed that the fleece I was wearing under the poncho had become damp. I put this down to condensation and didn't worry about it.
On returning home, I decided to find out once and for all whether the claims of waterproofness were true. I got into the shower wearing the poncho with a t shirt underneath. After 5 mins of letting the shower water hit my shoulders and chest (rotating slowly under the shower jet), I turned off the shower and removed the poncho. My shirt was soaked right across the shoulders and down the chest. My conclusion: this poncho appears to let water in wherever it's actually in contact with your body after short exposure to water.
If you want a "shower proof" cape then maybe buy this. If you're looking for ACTUAL waterproofness, look elsewhere.
I'm pretty tall (about 6') and this poncho fell to about shin length on me which meant when we went to Iguacu Falls all bar the tops of my boots were dry -fab!
If you need to draw the material in, you could use stick on velcro, or sow and then water proof stiches.
Great easy to throw on, light weight and warm, with plenty of ventilation so you don't get wet on the inside. :)
