Let’s get right into it shall we?
This proper in this article is the Enhanced Patrol Poncho from Snugpak. As you can see, it comes in this compression sack which is vented at the bottom. Compressed, it actions in at around 23cm x 11cm and weighs a mere 400g so it is lightweight and super compact. Ideal for climbing.

Expense smart the Improved Patrol Poncho is excellent worth for money. Brand new these can be picked up for anyplace amongst £30 and £50. I have integrated a url down below to in which you can buy it…bit really don’t go clicking it just yet….you’ve got acquired the rest of the assessment to watch to start with.

Let us search at the poncho itself.
The Improved Patrol Poncho is made for quickness and relieve. If you are out climbing and the rain begins to drop you basically grab this, throw it over your head, pull your arms by and zip it up. There is certainly no will need to choose your pack off like you would have to do with a rain-jacket. Infact, as the poncho is designed to deal with and shield your pack also then – in idea – it ought to also take away the require to carry a independent pack raincover.

The hood is thoroughly adjustable with pull toggles on both facet and a hook and loop procedure at the back.

Just one of the attributes that captivated me to this poncho is that it has comprehensive sleeves contrary to most other ponchos. The sleeves attribute generously sized thumbholes which help the healthy and these thumbholes are huge plenty of to healthy gloves beneath.

The chest has a large front pouch which is perfect for holding a map and compass. This pouch is fixed shut using a very robust but simple hook and loop procedure which is a shame as I individually really feel it would have benefitted from a zip fastener alternatively. Powering the entrance pouch you will also locate a spacious via pocket.

It is accessible in two colors – Olive and Black. This poncho is the olive one particular of course.

Dimension intelligent, Snugpak claim it’s a single dimensions matches all. Now I’m 5’9 and even at my modest top I can feel some tension in the sleeves when I have my thumbs by means of the thumbholes, particularly if I’m putting on a large pack beneath. I’m not sure how ‘one dimensions suits all’ it would be for people who are 6’ moreover.

The Increased Patrol Poncho is made from Paratex Dry materials and is totally seamed. The waterproofing on the poncho is a PU coating and it’s outer area is treated with sturdy drinking water repellent which is supposed to lead to any h2o to bead up and roll off.
