Couldn't take heavy rain

Used it on a 10 miles hike(Mailbox new - Washington state) for almost 6 hours in rain: Pros: 1. No need to wear rain pant, it protects you well below knee. 2. Sleeves are perfect and comfortable. 3. I have a 30 Liter backpack and it fits well. 4. Openings on side to access pockets is really helpful. I kept using to check my phone. 5. Feels light and easy to wear. 4. No Smell. 5. Easily packable in the given pouch. Cons: 1. It didn't keep me dry well, my outer layer was little wet. 2. Difficult to wear on a solo hike, had to take help of another hiker when i had a bagpack on back and tried to wear it. Would love to use it for a light rain or emergency purpose. Wont recommend for long hours and heavy rain.

Dry but hot.

The hiking poncho is certainly water proof! It did a great job on a recent 3 day hike in NZ. My only criticism is it gets very hot inside, especially if you're hiking up hill. There's no ventilation with this version, so you stay dry from the rain but get a little damp from sweat..

Keeps you dry

I ve been using this product for a year whilst on the scooter, its size and thickness of the material are perfect to protect from rain, no matter how rainy or windy it is

Poor poncho

Either not designed for British weather or just not waterproof.

Works not stylish :-)

Excellent at keeping you and your rucksack dry on those rainy days. Also good for the rainy/snowy days when skiing and much cheaper than a storm jacket.

Used for west highland way trek

Was used over few days hike of the west highland way in Scottish highlands. Walking 8 hrs a day in heavy rain on the last 2 days hike,worked as it should rucksack and clothes underneath were dry. Unpacks quickly when needed from own bag.i'm 5'10 and it covers down to just below my knee while carrying a 30ltr pak.

Rain Cape

Not as good as a previous cape of 4years ago would prefer alight green colour and a peak on the hood with cuffs fitted with is easy to carry folded.

Ideal waterproof for an outdoor photographer

I purchased this product as I had one before but lost it on a photographic foray. This item covers me and equipment in virtually any weather. I can use it as a portable hide and a ground sheet. The only downside is it could be longer as it only comes to the top of me wellies. I used to have a waxed riding coat which covered right down to the ankles of my boots. Maybe in the future this product could be longer in length.
