Mil-Tec Waterproof Ripstop Poncho Product Review

The Mil-Tec Waterproof Ripstop Poncho is constructed from 100% nylon, built to prevent rips and tears. As a waterproof poncho, you can rely on it to protect during even the heaviest of rainfall. It could certainly be described as a ‘heavy-duty’ poncho, which will be durable against the elements.

The nylon fabric allows the material to be lightweight, while also maintaining its strength. This makes it an ideal choice for survival, and, as it weighs only 1.5lbs (approx), it is excellent for storing in a backpack for when you’re hiking or need to head out during a disaster.

This is a one-size-fits-all poncho. It measures at 84in long, and 56in wide, so it is worth considering whether this would be appropriate for you.

In addition to its strength, the poncho is also multifunctional, which is exactly what you need from your survival gear. It comes with eyelets on the hem, so you can use the poncho as a shelter or a groundsheet in case the weather takes a sudden turn. On the sides of the poncho, you’ll find press-stud poppers, which allow you to use the poncho as a sleeping bag cover if you need to. The poppers also let you create sleeves on the poncho, so that you can hold equipment more efficiently.
