4.0 out of 5 stars decent for the price you pay, June 6, 2013
This review is from: Totes Unisex Rain Poncho (Apparel)
We're having an unusually rainy spring in Georgia this year. My last dog hated the rain and never wanted to go outside for longer than it took her to do her business. But now I have a puppy, and she is oblivious to the rain. She's also energetic and healthy and needs frequent walks. After getting drenched all the way through to the skin multiple times in a row with other jackets I owned, I decided a poncho might be perfect for dog walking. (A nice rain coat really isn't in my budget right now.)

You should probably not start using one of these ponchos with the expectation that it'll be perfect. It costs under $10, after all (I paid less than $5 at Publix for mine). However, what you get is pretty good for the price. I am a 5'4" woman and not overweight, and this thing is a tent on me. It goes all the way down to my knees.

Here's what I like about it:

*does seem designed to fit adults of a variety of shapes and sizes (though is probably too large for children)
*if you pack it away, it doesn't take much space (so would be good for travel; if you like to hike, you could fit a backpack under it pretty easily)
*actually keeps you dry (at least the parts that are covered)
*very lightweight but also seems durable (no rips or tears yet)

The only thing I really don't like is the hood. It won't stay all the way up. So the front couple of inches of my head get wet anyway. I wear contact lenses most of the time, but when I have worn this with glasses, my glasses have gotten all wet. (If you wear glasses, you'll probably need an additional hat either under or over this poncho.)

Also, please note that this does not really protect any clothing that is not covered. For me, this means wet pants from the knees down.

But, for a cheap poncho, you really can't go wrong with this one.
