The Snugpak Poncho is a simple over the head, waterproof, smock style piece of useful kit that everyone should have. Designed to be worn over the user as well as the users backpack, if one is being utilized, to help keep you and your gear dry in a down pour. Its generous cut design can allow one to use as an emergency Bivvi if needed. Snugpak has gone above the old standard design of what most people think about when thinking of a poncho, they have included an adjustable hood and thumb loops in the design. Located on the chest is a Velcro map pocket with storm flap. Made out of Snugpak's exclusive Paratex Dry material and with fully taped seams which allows the shell to be 100% waterproof.

Its a little expensive for what it is, and it doesn't look like the most durable poncho when on the move through a forest- trails are fine.
I have spent lots of time in bad weather with ponchos and gortex type jackets. Time in the north woods, time on the water and time in the mountains.
There are times when a poncho is better than a gortex type ultra light jacket. A poncho that covers a pack is a plus -Snugpack will.
My experience is that ponchos without sleeves or open underarms breath much better when on the move. Snugpack not so much.
Thick ponchos can be great windblockers and don't blow around so much- Snugpack not so much.
I prefer no sleeves for holding a rifle - Snugpack not so much
Snugpack will probability get a little warm in hot weather (dont want to sweat) for some, more ventelation would be nice.
Very large and baggy, I would not want to engage in technical activities while wearing this light bag like material blowing around and getting in the way.
What is it good for? Its very packable and lightweight.A+.
Good for emergencys or waiting out short storms or light longterm rain.
Good for light movement. Wish it breathed more.
Good for fishing since it has sleeves.
Good insect protection. Full coverage.
Hey, that's just my opinion based on about 10 rain garments I have for specific uses. I wanted to buy this to keep in a vehical and see what the big deal was. It certainly has its place. Should be about 10 bucks less for what it is.
If you looking for heavy duty, super tough, heavy rain, better hood, cold weather, no sleeve poncho look at the Hazard 4 poncho. But its expensive and heavy. Probably the ultimate poncho but heavy.
Or, a Swiss military surplus heavy duty ponch can be had for as low as $8-20. Great, But heavy and bulky
Army surplus military ponch - about $25
Have a few vinyl type ponchos from Target I keep in a canoe that were $15 bucks and were everything the Snugpack was minus the lightweight and packable attributes.
For hunting on the move most ponchos are loud.
However, lightest poncho I have ever tried.
It reaches to my knees (I'm 72" tall) so with a pair of rain gaiters or maybe chaps you should be waterproof from head to toe. The thumb holes in the sleeves are nice, especially for hiking since that keeps them from riding up your arms. They're some kind of elastic though and they dry much slower than the rest of the poncho so don't accidentally store it wet.
I don't think this will work well in hot weather but then I don't generally care if I get wet. It fits easily over my 60L pack. I wouldn't want to try it but I believe that with a garbage bag for my feet and legs and this poncho for my upper it would serve OK as an emergency bivy. It's definitely long enough I can sit down and pull my knees inside to wait out a particularly nasty storm.
The bottom edge stays put even though there's no drawstring or other attachment around the waist. I had another similar jacket/poncho that had a tab/loop that went between the legs to keep the bottom edge from flapping. So far this doesn't seem to need it but I may add one later.
The stuff sack is kind of small and I can never seem to roll the poncho short or fat enough to fit back into it well. That's really my only gripe. Well, that and I should have probably gone with a brighter color.
