Arcturus Reusable Rain Poncho Product Review

At only 0.68lbs, the Arcturus Reusable Rain Poncho is super-lightweight, and ideal for use in emergency situations. It packs down into a compact size, and even comes with a carry bag for your convenience.

It is a versatile poncho, and can be used as a tarp or emergency shelter, or a groundsheet to help you stay comfortable. The sides of the poncho unbutton for easy access to its whole shape, and included are steel grommets in every corner, for a simple tie-down process.

It is designed from 210T rip-stop taffeta material, and coated with two layers of waterproof polyurethane. This makes it able to withstand a plethora of weather conditions, even when the unexpected happens.

The hood is exceptionally large and deep, which provides ideal protection from adverse weather. It comes with an adjustable drawstring, so you can easily alter the tightness and fit of the hood as the weather changes.

The poncho is described as ‘extra-long,’ so it should cover most adults past the knee and even just above boot-level. You’ll be thankful for that extra protection if you end up in a flooded situation, and you never know when you could be up to your knees in disaster!
