    I had to give up trying to locate the re-folding how-to & called Coleman. In a short while I got an email with an attachment - exactly what I needed. I could remove it from the attached hood that converts to the carry bag, but when it came down to returning it, I was at a loss I didn't see...

    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

    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...

    Went out to the woods today to take care of something, and made a video on setting up a shelter. There are a couple of things that were skipped, such as using the waist straps as guide lines and how to stop the rain water from going down the middle support rope. But I did not think about those...

    In a few of the survival books I've found 101 uses for military ponchos. I'm trying to find one or something with the same or better quality. Any recommendations? Thanks jw

    For my shelters I have often used a GI poncho in warm weather and a 8'x10' tarp in cold weather. My preference has always been the poncho, due to it being lighter, packing smaller, and being a multiuse item (worn, overhead shelter, bivy sack). I know two GI ponchos can be snapped together to...
