    Just a shot in the dark here. Several months ago I found a website on SB for a woman who ran a small business out of her home where she sewed various multicam items; bashas, ponchos, beanies, scarves etc. I think her website was in a post by someone who recommended her work. Of course, I...

    Well, there's no avoiding the fact that my beloved old woodland camo poncho is long past it's retirement date. I saw that is selling the new ACU poncho for a little more than half what US Cavalry wants for the woodland model. My local surplus store doesn't have any in stock for me...

    Yes, I've read through all the ponch threads already. Just looking for the most up to date info. I'm set on getting a USGI Poncho after having weighed the pros & cons. What's a good price for a used example in decent shape with no tears, holes, etc...? I know that the older ones were...

    i'm starting my research on an army poncho for my BOB...but I dont know much about them. I've heard that they have multiple uses and would like to find out more about them to see if this would be a good fit for me. Got a few questions: 1.) where can I get the real thing - a good quality one...

    I have a medium Alice pack and a GI poncho. For use in the military, does the poncho go over pack also or does the poncho go on first and then the pack? With poncho over, it protects pack too but if anything needed out of the pack it would be a wet pain to try to get to the pack. The other way...

    Any recommendations on either getting a heavy duty poncho for my BOB or just making sure my gortex shell and hood is waterproofed with scotch guard? Everything in my BOB is watertight as is. Thoughts

    I need a poncho tarp. I have looked at the surplus ripstop type and I can pick up a used one in town for $24. What have you used and what would be the best option for a poncho tarp?

    As the title says, I'm looking for a useful, yet economical poncho. I've looked at the USGI style and like them except for the price. I would like to be able to buy a few and stash them around (cars, GHB/BOBs, etc). I've looked at Swiss surplus ponchos and while the price is attractive, I...

    I'm not short of warm clothes, although I am short of waterproof clothes. Most of my waterproof jackets are of that age that no matter how much waterproofing spray you apply they still let in. Money was at a premium so I ordered a US Military surplus poncho. Mine is Olive Green rather than...

    Just a thought I had and am thinking of adding to my go bag. I'm thinking of getting a piece of bulk cammo in a likely scheme for my area. I'm going to get a piece 60"x80". I'm going to hem the edges and put in a center hole with collar. My thought is that it would take up relatively...

    Besides Ebay, does anyone know of any stores selling the genuine German rubberized ponchos, or something very similar, here in the USA? I've heard many good things about them, though I'd prefer something in camo, but can't find anything except the lightweight TruSpec, Rothco, etc., stuff. Thanks.

    Finally got a chance to get out to the cabin today. After cooking up some sausages over the fire, I set up my new German army poncho as a tent in several configurations. The first few pics show the "sleeping" configuration. It's close quarters, but can be closed pretty much completely...
