I am 5'4" and it came a few inches below my knees, which was awesome for standing, and also fully covered me when I sat crosslegged. The sleeves came an inch or two above my wrists.
There was a snap on one side to make a sleeve, but not on the other, which was a mildly annoying defect but didn't really make that much of a difference. Also, I did end up getting some rain through the neck area, because I didn't tie the hood tightly enough. This was INSANELY torrential downpour though, and I don't think this would be an issue in a more average storm.
I'll be keeping this in my car and taking it on any future trips, just in case!
Also: as for the smell some reviewers are complaining about...it smelled pretty awful when I first opened it, so I lay it across a chair for a few hours and then the smell went away completely.
This one though is definitely my favorite. While both are about the same size and style, this one seems to be a bit better made, with better hood ties and grommets for fastening at the neck. The Stormtech poncho is a finely woven nylon fabric that I'm sure will be nicely rain resistant, but the fabric on this one is rain proof. I had a raincoat that I loved made out of this same material. It served me well for many, many years before the fabric finally gave out. The company no longer makes that sort of coat and I've been looking ever since. Most raincoats are ridiculously expensive or poor quality or too heavy or styled for work or dress wear. I wanted a raincoat with a hood that would keep the rain off when I would not normally be wearing any sort of coat--like in the summer when it's very hot here. Both the Stormtech and this poncho are very lightweight and will serve that purpose just fine, but I know from experience that this material, a light polyurethane over a thin fabric backing, is completely waterproof while also being smooth and flexible and surprisingly durable.
One thing I liked about my beloved raincoat was that it was so generously cut that I could even put my purse or a bag under it for protection. Obviously I can do the same with a poncho. I wish the 'sleeves' were longer, but otherwise the coverage and length are good. On me, at 5'4", it comes below my knees but only 2/3s down my arms.Read more ›
I have a second excellent poncho that provides 75% as much coverage as the military issue one but is compact enough to take along for use while traveling. I used it on a recent trip to Costa Rica and it was perfect. It kept me mostly dry and provided enough air circulation that I did not get wet from my own perspiration - which is where ponchos excel.
I bought this Pacific poncho in a "forest green" and it is 1/3 the size of my other "travel" poncho. It is small enough to carry in the pocket of a jacket or in a small purse and have it ready for immediate use. No it does not provide full coverage anymore than a small collapsible umbrella provides the same coverage as a large golfing type of umbrella, but that should not come as a surprise. The forest green color is a good deal darker than anything I have seen before and looks in tungsten light like it is actually a dark navy blue. Nice color and I prefer it to the color that is shown in the picture provided by this merchant.
You cannot have it all, lightweight, compact size, and full coverage of all bodies, big and small, and inexpensive. If you are big then get a full size poncho if you cannot afford to get your shins or shirt cuffs wet.Read more ›
