Fire Force #8740 Military Style Poncho Product Review

Made from rip-stop nylon fabric, the Fire Force #8740 Military Style Poncho can withstand high-impact rainfall and water damage.

The nylon uses thicker interwoven threads combined with thinner fabric to help prevent small tears from developing into larger issues. It also comes with water repellent urethane coating, and has taped seams on both the hood and neck, for extra protection from water.

This poncho comes in a variety of camo colors, such as black and brown, and a standard camouflage design. These colors are excellent for when you need to hide in the wilderness and keep yourself out of harm’s way.

What makes this durable poncho especially great is its lightweight design. It can be packed down easily into a compact size to fit nicely into a backpack. Weighing around 1lb, you shouldn’t have many issues carrying this poncho around with you, and won’t weigh you down when you wear it either.

In a survival situation, you never know when you’ll need to take shelter at a moment’s notice. This poncho’s multifunctional capabilities makes it a convenient piece of gear to have on hand. It comes with six grommets and eyelets on the hem, so you can use this poncho as either a shelter or ground cover for when you need it the most.
